DSE LDI Sustainability 2023 Efforts

We've already made progress!

Let's talk about carpeting! It's among the key areas where we have control over our usage. Unfortunately, its limited potential for reuse and the current lack of recyclability in the states present significant challenges. We acknowledge the impact and sacrifice involved in addressing this issue. Our teams cover an average of six miles on the show floor daily, underscoring the urgency for change. Make sure you check out the LDI wellness lounge for a massage!

By eliminating carpet in aisles, we're redirecting resources to fund partnerships and drive sustainability initiatives, as detailed above and below. Your support is instrumental in our collective journey toward a more sustainable future for our community. Thank you for being a part of this movement!
