Wrap & Send Services Wins 2015 Emerald Award For Sustainability In Packaging
Through the Program, Wrap & Send, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue successfully saved 2,776 trees, diverted 539 pounds of landfill waste, saved 1,143,369 gallons of water, 653,354 kilowatt hours of electricity, and reduced 163 equivalent tons of carbon dioxide in 2015. With Emerald’s help, these socially responsible companies have provided consumers with innovative and sustainable packaging while still incorporating their well-known luxury packaging efforts.
“We are honored to present the Emerald Sustainability Award for Packaging to Wrap & Send this year,” states Jaclyn McDuffey, Emerald’s Managing Director. “Forward thinking companies like Wrap & Send are what drive sustainability onward and into every aspect of the supply chain. It is a pleasure to be partnered with a service provider who understands the value of continuously innovating and improving their environmental initiatives.”
The Emerald Sustainability Program provides participants with annual Environmental Impact Statements that calculate how many trees, gallons of water, pounds of landfill waste, electricity, plastic, and carbon dioxide participants have saved by using Emerald products over traditional, non-sustainable materials. The 2015 winners in the Distribution, Facilities, Food Service, and Hospitality sectors will be announced in the coming weeks.
