1.       Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Reduce your use of disposable items and buy permanent items instead. When ordering these items online, reuse cardboard boxes and recycle packaging materials. Ranpak paper already contains at least 40% recycled content, keep the cycle going by putting our paper into the recycling or reuse for excellent void fill and cushioning for your own shipping needs!

 

2.       Conserve Water

Don’t let the water run while shaving or brushing your teeth and take showers instead of baths. You can save more than 200 gallons of water a week just by turning the water off while brushing your teeth!

 

3.       E-Cycle Computers and Electronics

Find your local recycling center for used electronics. Apple recycles all of their products for free and may even give you a gift card if your device has resale value!

 

4.       Buy Environmentally Friendly Products

Do your research and buy items that are Green. Make sure their manufacturing and source materials are environmentally responsible. At Ranpak, we use SFI and FSC certified source materials making sure our paper comes from sustainable and environmentally friendly initiatives.

 

5.       Save Energy

Purchase Energy Star appliances for your home. Not only will switching to energy efficient products save you about 30% per year, you will reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.

This Earth Day remember that everyone can make a difference to better the environment. By making one step in the right direction, we can make the world a cleaner place to live for years to come!
