Taking a Leading Role in Sustainable Packaging
Established in 2007, Be Green Packaging LLC is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of authentic, sustainable and compostable packaging solutions serving the foodservice and consumer packaged goods (“CPG”) markets.
BGP was the first packaging company to achieve Cradle to CradleCM (“C2C”) certification, which signifies adherence to strict requirements for sustainability and environmental friendliness of both products and facilities. As the only consumer packaging company possessing this highly coveted certification, BGP has emerged as a thought leader in the $142 billion sustainable packaging market and is well positioned to capitalize on the rapidly growing demand for sustainable packaging. Over the next 10 years, sustainability is expected to top cost and safety as the leading concern in packaging, driven by consumers and corporations placing greater importance on reducing their environmental footprint.
Be Green Packaging has distinguished itself as an innovator in the sustainable packaging market by obtaining an unprecedented level of independent, 3rd party environmental and social certifications covering its products and manufacturing facilities. In an era of rampant ‘greenwashing’, Be Green Packaging is going the extra mile to back up its sustainability claims by working with the worlds most respected organizations, who review the company’s operations, ensuring they meet strict internal and international guidelines for worker safety, health, fair wages, cleanliness and appropriate ASTM and ISO standards. Additionally, the company has tested its packaging for compostability and recyclability not only in the required labs, but in ‘real-world’ operations as well.
Be Green Packaging currently holds environmental and social certifications from the following organizations:
- Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute
- Non-GMO Project (Verified Product)
- Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI)
- Western Michigan University’s Recycling Pilot Program
- American Institute of Baking (AIB)
- USDA BioBased Products Program
Be Green Packaging operates from its corporate headquarters in Santa Barbara, California and is now supported by global manufacturing and logistics capabilities. BGP currently manufactures products from two facilities located in China and is in the process of bringing a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility online in Ridgeland, South Carolina, which will allow the Company to optimally support its growing list of domestic customers.
Be Green is widely known for it’s iconic ‘Utility Trays’, which can be found in Whole Foods Markets across the world as well as the innovative packaging it has developed in tandem with Gillette for the Fusion ProGlide Razor.
