A SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING SYSTEM
Here at Green Box we understand the importance of working in a sustainable manner and being ecologically responsible. One of the main ways we can care for the environment is by joining a circular economic model that reduces the impact that our activities have on our environment.
Our products are designed to be robust and long-lasting, without any incidents during transportation. They are easy to repair and reuse, and can be dismantled and made into other products.
Green Box has obtained the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), according to The International EPD System (Sweden) and in accordance with the ISO 14025 standard.
Our products are light-weight and efficient, reducing the transportation costs and the likelihood of anything happening to the products.
Thanks to the quality of the materials and the manufacturing process used, the product’s useful life is extended, and the products can be reused over and over again.
The materials that we use are recycled, recyclable or come from certified sustainable sources.
ORIGIN OF RAW MATERIALS
All of the materials used to make the Green Box are recycled, recyclable or come from certified sustainable sources.
- Polypropylene pallet, 100% recycled.
- Wood from plantations with PEFC certificate.
- Cardboard manufactured using recycled paper.
AMOUNT OF RAW MATERIAL CONSUMED
The amount of raw materials used in the packaging is considerably reduced in comparison with other traditional solutions.
REDUCTION OF WASTE IN TRANSPORTED PRODUCTS
Due to its robust nature and resistance during transportation, the number of products which are damaged is considerably less than when using traditional solutions. When using traditional systems up to 30% of the transported products may be damaged; whereas with GB, this percentage is close to zero.
SAVINGS IN TRANSPORT/LOGISTICS
GreenBox has the best tare/load ratio on the market. Simplifying the task of packing and palletizing (without bottom or intermediate pallets) means a saving of 10% in transport costs with the resulting reduction in environmental impact.
The vertical ventilation system helps to maintain the products at an ideal temperature, thus reducing energy expenses.
SAVINGS IN REPLENISHMENT
GreenBox acts as an in-store display. This avoids repackaging, improves sales and contributes to better product turnover by improving product visibility.
Following the AECOC recommendations on the height of palletised load units this translates into lower efforts for personnel.See recommendation
RECYCLING USED MATERIAL
Another advantage that these products offer which traditional solutions are unable to, is that used material can be sent back for recycling. While other solutions such as the plastic pool have a return index of 1/3 (1 disassembled lorry is equivalent to 3 assembled), with Green Box the return index is 1/10, considerably reducing the transportation costs for the recycling of used material.
Here at Green Box we collaborate with different associations as we are committed to social causes that go beyond just recycling.
