A smarter way to do business!   

The owners of Eco-Latch Systems, LLC and their Box Latch Products™ are proud to announce that in November 2016, we became Wisconsin’s 4th Certified B Corporation™.   Joining this elite group of companies is an excellent way for our business to demonstrate our values in a transparent manner. Simply put, we believe that businesses should be a force for positive good in the world.  We further believe that by adopting a triple bottom line approach to the management of our business, we will be able to do good while helping our customers to be successful.    

What are Certified B Corporations™ ?     B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet and benefit from rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.  Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,974  Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.  For Box Latch™ Products B Impact Report, please click here.

 

bcorpAs a certified B Corporation™ we seek to encourage a corporate culture of corrugated cardboard box Re-Use.  Our mission is simple and our products offer cost effective solutions. Our challenge however is to demonstrate to the business world that they too can create a “re-use cycle” within their operations in place of “recycling” as the lone solution to corrugated cardboard box waste. Over 90% of cardboard boxes are used just once. For every ton of cardboard (1,500 – 2,000 boxes) that is Re-Used, we can save:

  1. nine cubic yards of landfill,
  2. 380 gallons of oil,
  3. 4,000 kilowatts of energy,
  4. 7,000 gallons of water and
  5. 17 trees – saving
  6. 64% of the energy
  7. 58% of the water,
  8. while eliminating 60 lbs. of air pollution!

Box Latch™ Products seek to educate and change the mindset within the manufacturing, distribution, storage, transportation and fulfillment facilities of corporations around the world. We believe that business should be a force for positive good in the world and we hope that our products can help businesses to realize triple bottom line (corporate social responsibility, environmental stewardship and economic viability) benefits.
