At the end of May 2013, PSI was awarded second place in REI’s (Recreational Equipment, Inc’s) 2012 Purchasing Supplier Partners of the year award for our constant dedication in providing environmentally friendly and cost-effective products that aid in REI’s waste reduction goals. REI, a national retailer dedicated to inspiring, educating and outfitting for a lifetime of outdoor adventure and stewardship, is proud to announce PSI as one of their 2012 Purchasing Supply Partners of the year nominees!
By providing sustainable packaging solutions that helped REI reduce waste production by 25% by the end of 2012, PSI demonstrated that they are actively pursuing more cost-effective methods that not only reduce spending and free up additional funds in a budget, but also compete with new technologies and innovative methods to produce eco-friendly cardboard packaging supplies for businesses of all sizes.
PSI’s methods provide REI with packaging made out of recycled materials, as well as high performance corrugated board that maximizes efficiency and minimizes materials simultaneously. PSI uses about 43% of recycled material in each of their boxes, which helps to reduce the amount of waste and energy needed to produce cardboard packaging directly from wood pulp. By reducing the amount of materials and energy used in the production of our corrugated products, they’re able to produce a durable product that is easier on your budget and healthier for the environment.
“We recognize that natural, renewable resources used in the production of corrugated cardboard and paper products must be harvested and produced responsibly through a closely monitored plan of action, ensuring the sustainability of these materials well into the future.”
“In accordance with REI’s Paper Policy, our products are produced from recycled and other known origins. Our facilities also take advantage of solar paneling to collect enough energy to reduce daily electrical demands by 45%, which prevents an additional 2.6 million pounds of CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere annually.” -Chris Litzinger, Vice President of Packaging Services Industries.
PSI continues to provide quality packaging services to REI, and is thankful for this wonderful recognition!
