Building a more sustainable environment.
Currently, our future is being threatened by global warming, poor air and water quality and the systematic depletion of our natural resources. Green initiatives are now being promoted globally in order to reverse these very negative trends. We are proud to say that Storstac has always been sensitive to environmental issues because recycling is at the core of our business. Our same passion that goes into innovation goes into how we think about environmental responsibility and the enhancement of a greener environment through all of our business activities
We reclaim steel shipping containers that were destined for landfill sites and find creative ways to turn them into useable space. Our team has been turning ‘waste into space’ since 1971 and is committed to building a more sustainable future for us, and our children.
Storstac leads the industry in environmental stewardship and social responsibility. We are continuously seeking new ways to give back to the community while working towards a more environmentally sustainable future through our eco-friendly corporate policies and practices. One of our strict policies is the use of environmentally friendly “ECO PAINT” in all of our paint jobs and daily operations.
The Green Corridor is a groundbreaking initiative for generating a green redevelopment of the international bridge corridor linking Canada to the United States.
The Green Corridor is exploring the possibilities of alternative energy with The Poet’s Blox, a public art project created by the Visual Arts students of The University of Windsor. This piece features a state-of-the-art wind meter and an urban-scale wind turbine. These wind-propelled devices bring together art and technology in a new and innovative way. The piece features a shipping container (provided and modified by Storstac Inc.) which has been converted into an artist’s studio or “eco lab” where visitors, writers and poets are able to transmit messages to a large-scale LED screen mounted on the outside of the container. The screen features works from prominent Canadian poets as well as displaying real-time environmental data such as wind speed.
To collect this data, a wind meter with built-in solar panels has been mounted on the shipping container to measure the speed of the wind produced by passing traffic. The data is then transferred in real-time to the LED screen, again making the information visible to passing commuters. The wind turbine helps fuel the structure by providing energy to run the eco lab inside the shipping crate.
