Supporting STEM Education
Portland Public Schools and EnviroLogix have partnered to encourage the scientists of the future. We sponsored the first annual Portland STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Expo for local middle and high school students in 2014, and every year since then. The event continues to grow and serves the community as an ideal venue for students and business in the STEM field to showcase their work and foster interest in STEM. Our staff scientists routinely visit students in Portland classrooms as well, to support their science curriculum, answer questions and provide hands-on learning opportunities.
We support the Preble Street Teen Center with annual Thanksgiving food drives and clothing collections, to help local teens in distress get through the harsh Maine winters. We host Red Cross blood drives, build houses with Habitat for Humanity, and provide volunteer service at many other valuable community organizations like STRIVE, the Iris Network and the Maine Wildlife Park.
Protecting Our Environment
EnviroLogix is committed to making a lasting difference. In 2014, we adopted a section of the Portland Trails - a nonprofit land trust that preserves the local environment for public access - and lend a hand with cleanup and maintenance. We have also had the privilege of volunteering to repair and maintain green spaces within the Royal River Conservation Trust. Our Sustainability Team works on implementing new ways for us to lessen our environmental footprint. In 2015, we added composting to our existing recycling program in an effort to further reduce waste.

Employee Spotlight: Samra Mohammed, Shipping
Samra started making kit boxes at EnviroLogix 10 years ago as a temp. Within a few months, she was offered a full-time position. She spent half of her time in the dry room making wide combs for cottonseed testing, and the other half in our increasingly busy shipping department. In 2007, she started working full time in shipping, performing tasks like kitting, inventory and packing. Today her work in the shipping office is more administrative, and she communicates with customer service frequently every day to enter, process and manage orders. When asked what has kept her here so long, Samra replied, “there is no other place better than here, I think; it is always different and the work keeps me very busy.”
Samra is originally from Somalia, and we were so proud when she successfully passed her U.S. citizenship test in 2008! We had a company party to celebrate and honor her achievement. Her continued dedication is evident as she works hard at her job and at school. Samra enrolled at Southern Maine Community College last year, where she is currently taking classes in the field of Hospitality Management.
