ECOlunchbox has once again achieved a California Green Business Certification!
The California Green Business Network aims to create a vibrant green community by recognizing businesses that meet high standards of environmental performance. Our certified green business status reflects our commitment to minimize waste, avoid pollution, and reduce our carbon footprint.
From our products to our supply chain, every area of our business is eco-friendly. Achieving this status is no mean feat, but we're passionate about using our company to create a greener Earth!
Our green status means we meet 57 requirements across six categories, including water, energy, waste, and pollution. Here are just a few we adhere to:
- We recycle all paper, glass, metal, cardboard, and plastics accepted in our area.
- We don’t have single-use bottles of water for employees or guests.
- We have a green purchasing policy.
- We have an excellent 'green team' who leads our green business efforts.
- We don’t use washing or cleaning products that contain added antibacterial agents, such as triclosan.
ECOlunchbox was started by eco mom Sandra Ann Harris, who wanted to make available lunch ware for families that would help them reduce their dependence on plastics for health and environmental benefits.
“I wanted to eliminate plastics from my kids' lunchboxes to reduce their exposure to the leach-y toxins commonly found in such products, as well as do the right thing for Mother Earth. It seemed like a pretty simple concept.”
Since 2009, we've sold more than 700,000 ECOlunchboxes, and by using our lunch containers each year, the ECOlunchbox community has averted the use and disposal of tens of millions of pieces of trash (mostly plastic).
