We Focus On Four Main Aspects:
- Source Reduction
- Reusable Products
- Recycled and Recyclable materials
- Offering Biodegradable Products
Since opening in Greenville, SC in 1976, our goal has been to provide you with the packaging supplies you need in a fast, affordable, and now, Eco-Friendly way! We offer many products that are either recyclable or biodegradable. Every small change a person can make to help the environment can make a huge impact on the decrease of our country’s landfills. And the fact that all of our products are ordered from the leading manufacturers means that not only are you helping the environment, you are also getting a strong and durable product.
We look to offer green packaging solutions based on:
- bringing the newest and most innovative products to the market
- evaluating and and finding new sources for your packaging needs
- creating a streamlined and efficient packaging solution for your business
- recreating the way industries deal with packaging and the waste that it formerly created
- our commitment to working with your company to meet it’s sustainability goals
Offering Green Packaging is important to everyone within our company. We want to do everything we possibly can to make a difference in our environment. We are focused on bringing you the products you need to be environmentally responsible at affordable prices. Along with our biodegradable and recyclable packaging products, we also offer several items made from 100% recycled content.
Recycling is the reprocessing of materials or products into new products. In other words, an item has served its purpose and is capable of becoming raw materials again. Recycling your items such as paper, plastic, glass, and metal can drastically lower the earths consumption of raw materials as well as lower our landfills. We would like to do our part for the earth by offering recyclable, earth-friendly packaging supplies. We offer recyclable corrugated boxes, paper products made from 100% recycled content, recyclable mailers, and many more recyclable items.
We also offer chipboard which are boxes made from recycled cardboard. Right now, boxes make up about 9% of our dumps. However, its in fact very simple to recycle these items! All you have to do is break the boxes down and cut them into approximately 2’ x 2’ pieces and place them in a blue recycling container. We are now even offering recycled content liners and other recycled plastic products. Each thing we do can save an incredible amount of water and trees each year. Americans today recycle about 32 percent of their waste. This number is almost double the number from 15 years ago, so we’ve came a long way, but now, we’re going even further!
IPS Packaging is excited to offer our new recycling program! The program is designed to minimize the amount of waste and maximize the amount of material that is recycled. Our program works in three parts:
- When you receive a shipment of stretch film we will also send a Gaylord container for recycling.
- As you use up rolls of stretch film you can throw the cores of the rolls into the container, along with the used film from incoming shipments. Also, the cores from rolls of tape and other rolled products can be placed in the container.
- Upon the receipt of your next shipment from IPS we will come pick up the container free of charge and take it to be recycled.
We are very excited about the prospect of working with you in this endeavor as well as seeing how we can work together to help preserve our planet!
During the past 36 years, the quantity of waste each person creates has increased dramatically from 2.7 to 4.4 pounds per day. The most effective way to reverse this trend is by preventing waste in the first place.
Waste prevention, also know as “source reduction,” is the practice of designing, manufacturing, purchasing, or using materials (such as products and packaging) in ways that reduce the amount or toxicity of trash created. Reusing items is another way to stop waste at the source because it delays or avoids that item’s entry in the waste collection and disposal system.
Source reduction, including reuse, can help reduce waste disposal and handling costs, because it avoids the costs of recycling, municipal composting, land-filling, and combustion. Source reduction also conserves resources and reduces pollution, including greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. IPS is committed to continuing the trend of source reduction and doing our part to provide the products you need to reduce the amount of packaging required and thus reducing the amount waste produced, while improving your bottom line at the same time.
There are several MAJOR benefits to source reduction, such as:
- Save Natural Resources
- Reduces Toxicity of Waste
- Reduces Costs for Communities, Businesses, and Consumers
IPS is proud to put our reusable products on display for you. We enjoy providing these products for you because we take environmental responsibility seriously.
One product we are excited to tell you about is our reusable Dunnage bags featuring the Superflow valve. Instead of old one-way valves that become costly and wasteful because they can only be used once, consider and upgrade. Our dunnage bags with Superflow valves are fast, convenient and, best of all, reusable!
Additional Reusable Products
We have many other reusable products for you to use (and reuse!) available online. We encourage you to look into our environmentally responsible packaging options.
