CuraScript SD’s Environmental Sustainability

Posted Wednesday, June 24, 2020

 

Did you know? EPS is made of 98% air and is an inert material without harmful chemicals that off-gas or leach during its use of disposal.

 

01 | Meeting Your Needs

CuraScript SD manages and operates its business in a manner that respects our environment and conserves natural resources. By implementing sustainable principles and promoting environmental responsibility, we provide healthy alternatives to reduce unnecessary waste. While maintaining a high-level of service, CuraScript SD provides sustainable shipping materials to our customers, reduces paperwaste and utilizes receylable material within our services and our own everyday business practices.

02 | Safe Shipping Practices

Every company has different policies, and guidelines for shipping practices, so it is important to find out as much information as possible before placing orders. CuraScript SD uses Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Coolers. The EPS industry has developed an extensive infrastructure of collection sites to support EPS recycling. While a location may not exist in your area, there are other ways to reduce, reuse, or recycle EPS coolers.

03 | CuraScript SD Enironmental Alternatives

At CuraScript SD we understand that practicing environmental sustainability is important. There are ways to maintain regular business practices while also integrating sustainable habits such as:

  • Reduce the number of shipments you receive by combining orders.
  • Reuse the coolers for lunches, picnics, or consider donating them to local charities or food pantries.
  • Recycle the coolers through the AFPR mail-back recycling program (USPS postage rates apply).
  • Gel Ice Bricks - CuraScript SD uses gel ice made from a cornstarch compound. To recycle, simply cut the thawed ice brick open to discard the liquid and recycle the pouch with your plastics.
  • Corrugated Cardboard - While CuraScript SD already uses post-consumer content corrugated cardboard packaging, this material can continue to be recycled. Corrugated cardboard can be recycled with your paper products.
