It would stand to reason that the maker of the first USDA Certified Organic household cleaning products would champion for “green” containers in which to package them for consumers.
In many regional and national retailer aisles, you will find Greenology’s exclusive brand greenshield organic in rigid plastic containers made from polyethylene resin - both colored green and sustainably green and 100% recyclable. What makes this green resin even more special, is that it’s derived from sugar cane.
CCC’s Berwick Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities make ‘green’ containers for Greenology. These are made from 50% post-consumer resin and 50% sugarcane ethanol supplied by Braskem. This green polyethylene is not only made from renewable materials, but also offers the same functionality as conventional HDPE.
And where petroleum-based resin emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, sugarcane produced resin actually captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Thus, it is a carbon negative source material.
Over 1,000,000 rigid plastic detergent bottles later (and counting) - CCC continues to make these green containers for Greenology, supporting their sustainability initiatives - as well as our own!
