How sustainable are your products?

We aim to provide the most sustainable packaging on the market. That’s why many of our products are made from a majority of recycled materials and are recyclable.

But sustainability is more complicated than recyclability. To understand the full environment impact of our packaging, we consider materials, manufacturing, dimensions, transit, and recyclability. Watch this episode of Shipping Things to see these aspects in action.

Please tell us more about your packaging needs, and we’ll let you know how we can help. 

Manufacturing: We select factory partners that use sustainable practices and renewable resources. 

Transit: We cut down carbon emissions by matching each job with the closest possible factory. By reducing the travel distance we also reduce freight time and costs. Our factory network covers 45 U.S. states, plus China and Taiwan, enabling us to greatly reduce travel distances.

Materials: Our papers and plastics are made from high percentages of recycled content. You can find details on each product page. We frequently update the site with additional details to increase transparency.

Recyclability: If recyclability is paramount, we suggest corrugated and paper products. Plastic recyclability varies from city to city, but paper and corrugated materials are more widely accepted. 

Dimensions: The smaller/lighter your packaging, the more efficient it is. For example, shipping in envelop mailers rather than boxes can lower your ecological footprint (and shipping costs) by taking up less space in transit. For efficient, lightweight shipping, opt for the least amount of packaging you need to ship safely.
