before sustainability was cropping up on everyone’s to-do list: our office
switched to recycled paper, we set up desk-side recycle bins, and
discouraged disposable dishes offering more planet friendly options.
To date, we’ve made the following improvements in our
packaging system; our caddies are no longer shrink
wrapped and they are now made from
100% recycled paperboard.
Over time, these steps grew into a formal commitment to Zero Waste. That means we're striving to adopt systems that produce no waste in the first place. We're not there yet, but we're on our way.
2015 Zero Waste Goal
Achieve 90% waste diversion in our headquarters, at field events and in the facilities that make our food.
In our business practices we’ll strive to:
- Incorporate sustainability criteria into packaging design
- Close material loops - redesign, reduce, reuse, recycle and compost
Thus, the Wrapper Brigade program was born and schools, offices, community organizations, and even individuals can earn money for charity by collecting used wrappers.
For every wrapper the brigade receives, 1 cent will be donated to a nonprofit of the collector’s choice.
