A fundamental priority

Our Commitment to Conservation

Water is one of Earth's most valuable resources. It is essential for life, which is why water conservation is a fundamental priority at I-CON.

According to the EPA, American households waste a combined 900 billion gallons of water each year. That is enough to fill approximately 900,000 swimming pools. This waste has a wide impact, from personal utility bills to the overall impact on the planet. At I-CON, we have already saved 60 billion gallons of water with our products. We are on a mission to save an additional 20 billion gallons by 2030 to further the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation.

I-CON's commitment to conservation helps create less waste and preserves our natural resources by reducing the amount of incoming water, heated water, and sewage.

Over the past 25 years, customers who have retrofitted their facilities with I-CON products have typically reduced water usage by 65% to 75% per fixture, with some facilities reporting up to an 80% reduction per fixture. The per fixture savings result in facilities' overall water usage going down 40% to 60%. Thanks to those kinds of savings, other expenses, like sewer lift station upgrades, have been indefinitely postponed.

The average correctional facility uses 35,040,000 gallons of water every year. With our products, facilities save 14,600,000 gallons annually. That adds up fast. Across all of the correctional facilities using I-CON products, our systems save over 5 billion gallons of water every year and save taxpayers over $30 million dollars annually.

Environmental Impact

Over 87,641 pounds of metal recycled*

At I-CON, our products are made from quality metals, which can be difficult to find. That is why, when we have extra materials, we recycle them so that other organizations can use and benefit from them.

Over 40,560 pounds of cardboard recycled*

Our shipping and receiving team at I-CON does an excellent job while showing extra consideration for the environment. By going the extra mile to recycle the cardboard that enters the warehouse, they are able to keep thousands of pounds of cardboard out of landfills each year.

Over 246 trees saved by recycling paper*

Our team at I-CON places special emphasis on conserving the environment. One way we do this is through recycling paper. Taking this small and simple step towards conservation has allowed us to save many trees already, and we are on our way to saving more.

*Since 2021.
