Eliminate Unfavorable Materials
It is our desire as a company to use BPA-free packaging for as many products as possible. We expect to make the transition on an ongoing basis as new options become commercially available.
Decrease plastic usage, with an emphasis on single-use plastics.
Suppliers are encouraged to provide packaging that minimizes or eliminates the use of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) including Oriented Polystyrene (OPS) material.
Suppliers are encouraged to provide packaging that eliminates materials that contain or contribute to dioxins, furans, suspected endocrine-disrupters, or toxic heavy metals.
Provide clear recycling communications on Own Brands product packaging, including the use of QR Codes, by 2022. The company is working with How2Recycle to standardize its labeling system and improve the reliability, completeness, and transparency of recyclability claims.
