At Beatrice, we believe in doing our part to help the environment. It has been a long process to ensure that everything is done correctly, from product packaging, sales and order forms, as well as the office-recycling program. Below are just a few ways how we are doing our part.
*Terephihalate & High-Density Polyethylene Polyethylene: For those that get absolutely confused on what to do with these plastic grocery and bread bags, paper towel or bathroom toilet paper plastic wrappings, or even those bubble air packs in your shipments you received, these should be all gathered in a kitchen plastic trash bag, then use the Store Drop-off where plastic bags are deposited when you walk in. So many throw these many forms of plastic pouches and wrappings in the trash because normal curbside recycling can’t process these, but your local Store Drop-off will, and the facilities where these ultimately go to are made to accept them. Please, don’t throw these many plastic bags and wrappings in the trash, you have an option, and that is the Store Drop-off.
The use of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) #6, which is what packing peanuts are made of, are not allowed for packaging and shipping at Beatrice. If we do receive this material from our vendors, we either try and reuse it, but never throw it in general trash, as this material is not readily accepted at recycling facilities.
Employees at Beatrice participate in the company recycling program and are encouraged not to waste paper. Separate bins are installed in Beatrice offices: Blue for recyclable materials, and gray for non-recyclable materials. This program has become very successful with employees and has created awareness to our environment and surroundings.
To help eliminate paper waste and printing costs, most of the new business forms used for purchase orders, sales orders and other internal forms are now produced and stored in Adobe Acrobat™, which is a document production program used primarily for paperless forms.
Comprehensive recycling codes to help costumers, vendors, internal Beatrice employees and contractors. A handy downloadable copy is available on the bottom of the page, as form BI42208.
