Our Approach to Sustainability

Patients and physicians around the world have come to trust Juzo as the leader in compression therapy and vascular health. And while our expertise certainly lies in managing the circulatory system through compression, we understand there are many other factors that can help enhance circulation, and overall health.

That’s why we’re implementing a new wind turbine and solar panels into our North American plant. By minimizing our carbon footprint, we’re able to reduce air contaminants known to weaken the circulatory system and contribute to lung and heart disease. This small, yet vital step is just another way we’re doing our part to enhance the well being of our patients, and our planet.

Green Improvements Outside:

Wind Turbine:

  • Installed in October 2011
  • 141.25 ft tall
  • 2 blades, monopole
  • Will generate 25,000 kw annually
  • Cables installed underground

Solar Array:

  • Installed in October 2011 
  • 56 panels, ground-mounted 
  • Will also generate 25,000 kw annually
  • Cables installed underground 






White Membrane Roof: Highly reflective roof reduces energy consumption (by lowering A/C cost) and carbon emissions.

Collection Pond: Rooftop and parking lot runoff is retained, providing a natural eco habitat for local wildlife; also serves as an aesthetically pleasing area for employees to enjoy their breaks.

Landscaping: Reintroduced natural native northeast Ohio prairie land grasses that would have been native to this region over 100 years ago; landscaping is drought-resistant, and reduces erosion and the amount of irrigation needed; also helps prevent the spread of non-indigenous plant types that were introduced over the years; reduces maintenance costs.

Gravel Parking Lot: Reduces run off and erosion. Reduces heat reflection and therefore much like the white roof reduces carbon emissions.




Green Improvements Inside:

Lighting System: T-8 energy efficient motion sensor lights reduce energy consumption while providing more light output; system requires less energy than traditional fluorescent lighting.

Large Natural Windows: Natural light not only reduces energy consumption, but it also improves employee morale and overall mental wellness.

Hands-Free Faucets and Hand Dryers: These items have automatic sensors to reduce water and energy consumption as well as the waste produced by using traditional paper towels; also eliminates need for outside laundry services.

Electronic Invoicing(paperless): Reduces paper and energy costs.

Recycling Programs:

  • Aluminum cans
  • Batteries 
  • Cardboard
  • Light bulbs
  • Paper
  • Plastic

 


Thermal Recovery of Process Water: System uses dye process water and reclaims thermal energy to supplement heating costs for finished goods warehouse.

Thermal Recovery of Dyeing Process Waste Water: System reclaims thermal energy from heated dye bath water to also supplement heating costs of raw goods warehouse .

Juzo compression garments are proudly made in the USA.
Juzo compression garments are made with synthetic elastomers, making them ideal for people who suffer from latex allergies.
Juzo's exclusive FiberSoft® manufacturing process involves micro-spinning every compression fiber with soft, protective threads to provide a comfortable, breathable, durable garment.
X-STATIC® harnesses the power of silver to create a powerful technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria on fabrics, eliminating human-based odor for the life of the garment. X-STATIC® is made by permanently bonding 99.9% metallic silver to the surface of a fiber.
Juzo's compression garment moves with you using fiber that stretches and recovers in both directions, crosswise and lengthwise.
Compression starts at distal end and gradually decreases as it moves up the limb. Graduated compression supports the management of Lymphedema or Venous Disease.
Easy to slip on and off. Machine wash and dry.
Casual and dress styles for men and women. Multiple print or color options, including seasonals. Great for work, home or play.
The major difference between a higher quality compression garment and a garment of lesser quality is the presence of an inlay thread, which provides a high level of compression consistency.
