Our commitment to protecting the environment dates back to the early days of Borax. Back in 1916, company officials helped write the language that was adopted by Congress to establish the National Park Service.
We continually work to better understand the environmental impact of our products through every stage of their life cycle - from mining through refining, shipping, use and disposal.
Boron plays a critical role in plant development and fertilization, including plants used for biofuels.
The Borax twenty mule team is one of the most memorable icons of the American West, and of the pioneers who transformed its mineral wealth into a foundation of modern industry throughout the world.
