Zotos aims to aid the environmental community by striving to neutralize its carbon footprint in the coming months through a variety of earth-amicable gestures. The Geneva-based plant derives 60% of its energy from two wind turbines, putting the company on the EPA's top 20 on-site generation list this year and Mother Nature's party-invitation list forever. Additionally, its new packaging is made from postconsumer recycled materials, helping to reduce packaging-related greenhouse gases.
