How Are Your Products/Services Environmentally And Socially Beneficial?
For over 30 years Great Little Box Company has been committed to conducting its business and operations in an environmentally sensitive and responsible manner. We conduct regular reviews of our environmental objectives and targets.
In a recent review, we concluded that consumers are demanding more sustainable packaging options. GLBC has determined that having SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certification was the next logical step in ensuring that our customers and end consumers receive the best packaging options. With only 10% of the world’s forest being certified, it’s becoming crucial to source our raw materials from these responsible sources.
GLBC’s paperboard division is also FSC ® (Forest Stewardship Council ®) ensuring that our products uphold principals and criteria ensuring forests are managed in a responsible way.
Why Is Local Important To You?
As a locally owned business we want to be a part of a thriving, sustainable community and economy where people and our planet matter.
