Give Eco-Friendly Packaging a Go
Most businesses don't approach their shipping operations with the goal of being "un-green," but the shipping industry does contribute heavily to waste and emissions worldwide.
While buyers have for decades been giving greater consideration to sustainable products and companies, everyone has the opportunity to make an impact on supply chain operations by considering eco-friendly shippingand packaging choices. And it doesn't have to break the bank.
Selecting eco-friendly shipping supplies is just part of the equation. By consolidating orders, choosing lighter packaging and optimizing box sizes, you could reduce your costs — all while gaining new eco-conscious customers.
And although Earth Day is only celebrated one day per year, you can create sustainable shipping practices that can make a big impact on your parcel shipping operations and your bottom line — every day.
