Sustainability & Environmental Initiatives
We are committed to learning how everything we do affects our planet, and how we can optimize best practices to evolve into an environmentally conscious company in every decision we make.
In order to champion progress and continue our journey of improvement, we wholeheartedly embrace education and commit to challenging everything we do. As proud members of various organizations, we are able to implement key learnings and share in new processes and practices to ensure that we are continually evolving and improving.
Understand our impact on the environment. With the help of CLIMATE PARTNER we can measure our carbon emissions, then put in place a plan to reduce and offset our carbon footprint.
Every aspect of the business is reviewed from raw materials -> to production -> to packaging -> to logistics -> to usage -> to end of life (Step 4―that’s where you can help).
Offset our carbon emissions with monetary investments in environmental projects that reduce CO2 emissions and measure our impact.
This is done by supporting bona fide carbon offset projects like PLASTIC BANK®. Measure our impact and share it with our customers. The more we sell, the more we give, the bigger our contribution to environmental initiatives!
Make it easy for our customers to recycle. Partnering with PACT COLLECTIVE, recycling collection programs become meaningful. How we collect, sort and recycle end-of-life packaging truly makes a difference. Learn how to clean, then bring your empties to a drop-off location or send it through a mail-back program.
As a member of 1% FOR THE PLANET, we join a growing list of companies that drive critical philanthropic support to address the most urgent environmental issues of our time.
Why should you care?
Carbon refers to carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide is the largest greenhouse gas that is emitted by human activities (76%). It comes from both natural sources (volcanoes, plant decay) and human sources (burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, natural gas to generate energy, deforestation, etc.). The emissions of these gases into the environment causes climate change. Climate change is the long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. This creates higher temperatures, more severe storms, increased drought, higher sea levels, melting glaciers, warming oceans, loss of species, among other things. Scientists can project what will happen to the earth if we do not reduce the emission of these gases and work to reduce the impact of what has already happened. While all of us have witnessed changes to the weather, it will continue to get worse and worse, greatly affecting the wellbeing of future generations (your children and grandchildren). We need to care. We need to do our part―every person, every company, every country throughout the world.
