Trees are an excellent renewable natural resource. One of our goals is to improve the industry’s ability to manage our country’s forest resources. Currently, 40% of all trees harvested in the United States are converted into pallets.
One Green Line Armor Hybrid Sustained Use Pallet™ will save 38 trees.
By increasing the life of the platform, we can reduce the environmental impact of pallets. For example, the use of 100 SUP™s reduces consumption of nails by 90,000. This reduces nails in landfills, energy consumption in nail production, and energy consumption in the logistics associated with that product.
One hundred SUP™s contain 13,800 alloy screws, or better than 75,000 fewer fasteners used over 10 years.
The eighth largest component of landfills in the United States is wood pallets. Not only will Green Line Armor reduce the amount of pallet waste going into landfills, but we’re developing a certified recycle program to assure that Green Line Armor Hybrid Sustained Use Pallets™ are properly recycled and stay out of illegal dumps.
