OUR APPROACH TO ECO-FRIENDLINESS
Taking Steps to Protect the Environment
Craters & Freighters is committed to sustainability. One example of this commitment is our partnership with Arbor Day Foundation and Trees for the Future. Since our partnership began, we’ve supported the planting of over 100,000 trees.
Other Eco-Focused Actions
Another beneficial action is to replace petroleum-based products such as polyethylene, Styrofoam, and foam-in-place packaging, which are extremely slow to degrade, with materials that are more biodegradable. If polyethylene and polyurethane products are necessary for cushioning, it is better for the environment if they are obtained from a recycling company.
Air bags can also be used to replace petroleum-based packaging materials if the goods are not weight-sensitive. Not only are craft paper, crimped paper, recycled shredded cardboard, and plastic pallets more biodegradable, they can be recycled a number of times depending on their usage. These practices are the foundation as we continually look to decease the environmental impact from our operations.
