Sustainable Manufacturing to Reduce Your Shipping & Handling Footprint

Posted by Don Glencross on Sep 28, 2015 4:04:18 PM

Eco-Friendly Packaging and Your Environmental Impact

When doing business with a manufacturing partner, an often overlooked piece of the process regarding delivering your product is how it’s packaged.

And, if the packaging is insufficient, the risk of damage goes up significantly, and so does its impact on the vendor/customer relationship. Beyond that business relationship, many of us are concerned about our sustainable manufacturing practices and their impact on the global community.
