UPS Lends a Hand to Help Businesses Make Greener Shipping Choices
United Parcel Service’s Eco Responsible Packaging Program is designed to provide businesses with information on how to ship their products in a more ecologically sound way. The program looks at three shipping areas and lets customers qualify for the UPS Green Stamp of Approval to verify that a business is committed to sustainable packaging solutions. To qualify, the package will be evaluated on damage prevention (did package arrive intact?), container size (right size shipping container, not too large), and packing materials content (environmental impact of materials). Once all of these criteria have met the requirements, then the Eco Responsible Packaging Program logo can be used on the package. This program has been verified by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), an inspection, testing, and verification company.
