The BoxMaker Honored for Sustainability Success by Pregis
April 7, 2021
We are proud to announce that The BoxMaker has been recognized with a Pregis Preserve Award for our commitment to sustainability and the planet. The award celebrates our role in protecting the forests of the world. In 2020, The BoxMaker helped save over 1,500 trees by using 100% recycled paper packaging — eliminating the need to harvest more trees for new packaging material.
About The Preserve Award
The Pregis Preserve Award celebrates Pregis partners that are helping the company reach their 2030 goal of preventing 15 million new trees from being harvested.
According to Pregis, “Sustainable sourcing is a critical component of a greener future. Saving trees creates positive ripples that have an outsized impact on climate, pollution reduction, and quality of life. This initiative will save almost 35,000 acres of forest (about 20,000 soccer/futbol/Fußball fields), and help absorb 5,760,000,000 lbs of CO2.”
Sustainable Materials Sourcing Makes a Difference
Saving trees creates positive ripples that have an outsized impact on climate, pollution control, and quality of life. Scientists estimate that every mature tree absorbs 48 pounds of CO2 every year. Every tree saved plays a vital role in reducing carbon in the atmosphere, providing clean oxygen, and sustaining our ecosystem.
