At PJP, we’ve always taken great pride in the communities we reside and work in. One of the biggest parts of our commitment to the community is making sure that we do business in a responsible way. Not just morally responsible, but environmentally responsible as well. For example, when we needed to build our state-of-the-art facility, PJP created a LEED Certified building that not only our people and customers could be proud of, but our surrounding community could be proud of as well.
But being environmentally responsible means more than just the building we work in. It’s going to take a communal effort to care for this beautiful planet of ours. For PJP, that means we need to work with our vendors to provide our amazing customers with a wide range of environmentally friendly solutions. We’re committed to helping you make your business more green. PJP has eco-friendly products of every variety. Fiber packaging, fiber towels and tissues, products made from recycled materials, compostable products, and much more.
But as you know, PJP isn’t only committed to saving the environment. We’re also committed to making sure your business is successful. Sometimes that means saving a little money on your bottom line. Let’s be honest, you can’t put a price on saving the environment, but that doesn’t always mean that green products are the least expensive products out there. So what should you do if you’re looking for an inexpensive packaging solution that is also safe for the environment?
If you read this blog regularly, you know what we’re going to say: Don’t worry, PJP has you covered.
You see, there’s actually a green packaging solution out there that is inexpensive and also can be very safe for the environment, and it’s probably not what you’re thinking…
That’s right, our old friend aluminum. Did you know that Aluminum is one of the most easily recycled metals out there? Not only that, but recycling aluminum is actually 95% more energy efficient than processing new aluminum? That’s 20 times less energy! The energy saved by recycling just one aluminum can is enough to run a television for three hours! That is a huge environmental impact. And the good news doesn’t stop there, about 31% of the aluminum produced in the U.S. is already made from recycled material, and about 50% of all discarded aluminum is recycled. This may not seem like a lot, but it is an enormous percentage when compared to plastic, which can only boast about 6.5% recycled rate in the U.S.
So, if you want to have a big impact on the environment, and you want to have a cost effective solution, consider buying some aluminum packaging for your customers. And don’t forget to call your PJP sales rep for more info!
