We wouldn’t let Earth Week 2023 pass us by without sharing some of the sustainability-driven companies that we’re proud to call customers. One of the most inspiring parts of our job is seeing the innovative, diverse solutions on the market working to preserve our planet and its finite resources. Here are five companies that we have our eyes on this year:
5 companies to support this Earth Day
Yes, definitely plant more trees, clean up your beaches and parks, use less plastic — and also consider supporting small, local businesses with sustainability initiatives, like these five Copper customers:
Bagito: Reusable bags
Long-time Copper customer Bagito partners with retailers and large corporations to supply reusable bags and other eco-friendly products made from recycled materials. Not only are their products designed to help consumers transition away from single-use bags, cutlery and other household items, but a portion of their revenue supports the nonprofit Power2Sustain that provides environmental education curricula for K-12 educators.
Malie Inc: Eco-refill bottles for body and hair care products
Skin and hair care products made from organic Hawaiian ingredients that smell tropical and enchanting and encourage reusing and recycling? We call that a win-win-win. Malie Inc.’s body products are available in eco-refill bottles made from recycled and reusable materials, with gallon refill containers so you can continue to refill your favorite products while avoiding single-use plastics.
ChopValue: Circular economy products made from recycled chopsticks
And as for attractive home or office decor made from sustainable materials, check out ChopValue. They make an eclectic selection of elegant homeware and office products all from urban harvested materials like chopsticks — think wall shelving to work stations, and even gaming accessories.
WoodBlocX: Modular garden boxes made with wood from managed forests
This Scottish modular garden bed retailer harvests its wood from local, managed forests, where trees are felled and replanted with seedlings – also helping support the 64,000 wood processing jobs that are vital to the UK economy. By using only locally harvested wood, WoodBlocX minimizes their “timber miles” and carbon footprint. What better product to grow your garden in?
SEaB Energy: Clean energy from organic waste
A UK-based manufacturer of small waste-to-energy technology, SEaB Energy’s containerized Anaerobic Digestion units built into shipping containers enable businesses and organizations to turn the organic waste they generate into clean energy on their own premises. With funding from the European Union and a slew of green technology awards, this is one B2B company to watch.
Stay green today and everyday
We’re proud to support countless social enterprises, B Corps and sustainability-driven organizations worldwide that are helping create a greener future, and we hope you’ll join us. Happy Earth Day!
