Earlier this year, Crate and Barrel began using a Kiva robotic system in its distribution center located in Tracy, California. Kiva robotic systems, which are used to pick, pack, and ship items, require almost no lighting to operate, and are said to be more energy efficient than more typical warehouse carousel/conveyor systems. The robots can also work with on-site solar/wind energy grids. The article provided under citations explains why Kiva robotic systems are better for the environment than more typical warehouse machines in more detail.
Additionally, Crate and Barrel sells items made out of recycled materials, bamboo, organic cotton, and soy- and corn-based foam. The company, which stopped using packing peanuts in 2006, plans to introduce more products made out of sustainable materials this year.
