Environmental Sustainability

Across our organization, PLD has taken significant steps to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and products.


• Establish and implement initiatives for minimizing hazardous and non-hazardous waste

• Conserve natural resources and reduce energy use throughout our operations
• Increase our investment in renewable energy and retrofit programs

Continuous Improvement

PLD has focused on diverting waste from landfills throughout our operations to reduce our environmental footprint. 

Across our NY facilities alone, PLD has reduced annual electricity usage by 158,430 KW by using energy efficient LED lighting fixtures and motion sensors. This has resulted in an estimated annual energy savings of more than $150,000. For these efforts we were proudly recognized as a “Green Business Leader” from PSEG Long Island.

In conjunction with participating retailers, PLD supports How2Recycle to create standardized labeling that clearly displays recycling instructions to consumers.


As our Founder, Mitch Singer, always says, “You can’t spell PEOPLE without PL.”
Providing our employees with a healthy, safe, and fair working environment is paramount to our organization.

At PLD, our employees can expect…

• Compliance with all local, state, and federal laws to ensure full and equal employment opportunity

• A workplace free from discrimination or harassment of any kind

• A zero-tolerance policy toward workplace violence against or by employees

• A clean, safe, and hazard-free working environment in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970

• A comprehensive benefits package, 401k, PTO, Family and Medical leave, Tuition Reimbursement benefit, and training and development opportunities. This includes on-the-job training programs, Talent Development workshops, and PLD University — an on-going program that allows office staff and plant management to choose from a range of self-directed courses to help take their business skills to the next level


Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.
—Helen Keller

Throughout the year, PLD teams come together to support various causes and community efforts. Many of these projects let us give back locally, where we can see first hand the positive impact of our efforts.
