Commitment to the Environment

We do not just talk about sustainability, we practice it in every aspect of our business. Each year we set new goals to push the limits of our sustainability with our recycled products as well as our manufacturing practices. Within our 3-layer technology, we sandwich recycled material within the middle layer, keeping the integrity of the product while adding the benefit of sustainability.
We use environmentally responsible manufacturing and packaging processes that preserve resources,
reduce our carbon footprint and improve our quality of life.Mr. Paul Keiswetter, CEO

Responsible Design

 Our packaging comes from a company that is Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) certified and makes managed forestry a priority.

  • Our compact packaging contains 40% recycled content and water-based ink.

    Together these features reduce waste and preserve resources.

  • Our boxes are “rightsized” for our products to optimize transportation, making them lighter and more space-efficient.

  • Since we also consume less energy when shipping products to our customers, we are further reducing the carbon footprint.


Sustainability Scorecard Program

We help our customers reduce their carbon footprint. 

The Slip-N-Grip Brand and Petoskey Plastics are committed to sustainable materials management. Our commitment to a sustainable environment includes: helping to create sustainable products, primarily using recycled plastic as the feedstock, reducing petrochemical usage, reducing energy use and reducing the carbon footprint (greenhouse gas emissions). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) foster environmental innovations that are consistent with Petoskey Plastics and the Slip-N-Grip brand commitment.

   

  • Plastic Film Recycled

    Petoskey Plastics purchases land-filled bound used plastics. We provide information on the pounds collected, returned and recycled.

  • Plastic Bags & Film

    Comparison is then created between products made with recycled content vs. prime materials. With the help of our third party consultants, we can provide a direct correlation to the offsets and omission savings.

  • Total Percentage of Recycled Material

    Our engineered solutions and commitment to sustainability push us to design products with higher levels of recycled content.

  • FREE Scorecard Indicating CO2 saved as well as CO2 Equivalents and Emissions

    Our customers receive a customized scorecard which is a FREE service we provide for any specified timeframe.
