Our Daily Commitment
to the Planet

We at Star brite adopt responsible practices with due regard to the environmental impacts of our corporate activities. We set and continually review objectives and targets for achieving our goal to protect our entire global environment.

We seek not only to comply with safety and environmental regulations but also to implement in-house standards to improve our environmental performance and prevent pollution.

We seek to reduce environmental loads by efficiently using resources, saving energy, reducing waste, encouraging material recycling, and particularly by minimizing emissions of greenhouse gases, ozone-depleting substances, and toxic matter.

We endeavor to minimize environmental loads and adopt environmentally friendly technologies.

We endeavor to use education programs to raise environmental awareness among our employees and to ensure that they recognize the essence of this Green Policy by actively addressing environmental concerns.

We make wide-ranging social contributions in close partnership with local communities by disclosing environmental information and supporting environmental conservation initiatives.

Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project

The IRL Clam Project is moving fast releasing over 2 million clams into the Indian River this summer. The Clam Team gathered at River Rocks in Rockledge, Florida this past year to release 60,000 one-inch clams. These new clams were raised in St. Augustine, Florida at Whitney Labs and will join the over 275,000 clams that have already been released by the project team. The bi-valves will begin filtering and improving the water quality of the Indian River.

Star brite has supported the IRL Clam Project since its inception, helmed by Captain Blair Wiggins of Addictive Fishing.

S.T.O.P. Sea Turtle Oversight Protection
In order to S.T.O.P. Illegal lighting of the nesting habitat and to increase the safety for the Hatchlings and Nesting Females we had to develop a program that would act in a humane and positive way – by rescuing the hatchlings from certain death due to illegal Lights (Public and Private) and Educating the Public. We petitioned the State for a Permit to Rescue Disoriented Hatchlings from the Negative Lighting Impacts and Release them back into the ocean as Nature intended and we Succeeded!
