Octopus Products has made a commitment to environmental efficiencies with the monitoring and implementation of new processes that provide ongoing improvement. We are continually adding products to our line that contain rapidly renewable materials, high recycled contents and environmentally certified components. In June 2018, we were awarded the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody Certification.
We are a North American distributor and packaging for shipping purposes is a large part of our operations. We have taken measures to create a waste plan and engage in responsible recycling practices.
Socially, we participate in continual education and sustainable practice. 40% of our employees use public transit and carpooling when commuting to work each day. We also engage in training and learning practices for producing positive environmental change within the organization.
