Sustainability is a core value at GoLite. We don’t just talk about, we are about it.
In our effort to GoResponsibly, we are committed to finding and using sustainable packaging materials that are recycled, recyclable, and compostable. We partner with like-minded suppliers to utilize new and better materials in our packaging collection. Read on for a closer look at our efforts to make a positive impact on the planet.
Packaging & Hangtags
Our packaging and hangtags are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Just like our clothing fabrics, we are committed to using recycled materials to cut down on what goes into landfills. We also use recycled paper for all of our hangtags, underwear packaging, and sock packaging.
Shipping Boxes and Mailers
Packaging is a category that can have a significant impact on sustainability. Our shipping boxes are 100% recycled corrugated cardboard made in partnership with Pratt, a company committed to sustainable practices. We source our shipping mailers from EcoEnclose, makers of 100% recycled content. Our mailers offer a dual adhesive strip enabling reuse prior to being recycled.
Getting rid of plastic packaging is a real challenge when it comes to sustainability and we’ve decided that compostable and biodegradable polybags are the only way to go. GoLite uses polybags in partnership with supplier Grabio. Our polybags are certified USA BPI “compostable” which means it must reach 90% or higher biodegration within 180 days. All GoLite products will be shipped to retailers in these biodegradable and compostable polybags, which can be disposed of in a commercial food and yard waste bin.
For such small things, labels and UPC stickers can add up to a lot. To lessen the impact of waste on the environment, GoLite is committed to the smallest details in our sustainability efforts. By partnering with PURE Labels™, we’ve created UPC stickers that are compostable, biodegradable, and recyclable. We don’t stop there. We use adhesives and labels that are independently field tested to meet compostability standards.
