About Skyway Supply

 
It is our mission to educate our customers about the new products, technologies and procedures that are available to help them reduce the footprint of their operations while protecting the health of the people in their facilities.
 
Skyway Supply is a family owned business that is based in Clearwater, Florida. Named for the spectacular bridge that spans the mouth of Tampa Bay, we serve a wide variety of institutional customers throughout Florida and all across the USA. Our goal is to provide affordable “green” products that reduce environmental impacts, protect the health of building occupants and reduce the amount of natural resources consumed.

Being avid outdoor enthusiasts, we are keenly aware of the importance of lessening the damage done by our work and play. Our home waters are living proof that by changing the priorities and practices of a population, environmental damage can be reduced or even reversed. Thanks to the efforts of local governments and environmental groups, there is no doubt that Tampa Bay is in much better shape now than when we moved here 37 years ago. On a smaller scale, there is ample room for improvement in almost anyone’s environmental profile. Our products offer simple, affordable ways to launch an environmental initiative.
 
We are the Southeast Regional Distributor for the award winning Greening the Cleaning line of non toxic cleaning chemicals produced by the nonprofit Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology. Designed to protect the health of the children being treated in the pediatric oncology unit at the Hackensack University Medical Center, Greening the Cleaning products are held to very strict environmental standards yet they work as well as traditional toxic products and are competitively priced. In addition, 100% of the profits earned by the DIEC from its cleaning solutions sales are used to fund research into children’s health issues, especially those thought to be caused by environmental exposures.
 
Skyway Supply carries a full line of recycled janitorial paper products. We also carry food service items such as plates, cups and cutlery that are either made from compostable materials or from rapidly renewable sources.
 
Our unique green recycled trash bags are a fantastic substitute for the ubiquitous heavy duty black garbage bag. Made from recycled agricultural plastics, they are stronger and more puncture resistant than black bags, yet they are comparably priced. Their unusual green color is something that your customers or building occupants will recognize as part of your effort to be green. These bags require 80% less petroleum to produce than virgin vinyl bags, and they are made in the USA, which is unusual as over 90% of all plastic bags are made overseas. Because they are domestically produced considerably less fuel is consumed in the shipment of these bags.
 
Our biodegradable trash bags are a great substitute for your lighter duty trash bag needs. Made in the USA from a proprietary resin, these bags can degrade in as little as 9 months a composting or landfill environment. In addition to reducing plastic bag waste, using a degradable bag liberates the organic materials in your garbage so they can degrade.
 
We offer a full line of printer cartridges for all the major brands of laser and inkjet printers, as well as register ribbons, fax films and thermal paper. We strongly recommend to our customers that they purchase printers from companies that have robust  cartridge recycling progrms such as Hewlett Packard and Lexmark.
 
We are constantly on the lookout for additional environmentally themed products to carry. If we don’t have a particular item, please call us at (888) 875-9929 or locally at (727) 592-9500 and we will try to source it for you.
