Planting Trees with Packaging

Our Packaging team in Woodridge, IL, found a unique way to make sure they are doing what they can to help the environment.

In partnership with Green Worldwide Shipping, every time the Packaging team ships and item with Green Worldwide, a tree is planted on behalf of the team. So far this year, the Packaging team has had 35 trees planted in their honor.

“Samuel purchases full containers of polyester strapping from our vendor, ITISTRAP, in Villavera, Italy,” shares Dennis Stapleton, Logistics, Analyst, Packaging. “Green Worldwide is the US forwarder who handles the discharge of the container from the ocean vessels upon port arrival and then coordinates for final delivery to our warehouse in Fort Mill, SC – the fact that they help the environment is just a bonus.”
