It’s important to us that we offer packaging solutions that meet concerns for a smaller environmental footprint.
One way we do this is by offering sustainable packaging solutions. All of our bags have finishing options which use materials designed to minimize waste and keep harmful chemicals out of the ecosystem. Our paper bags can be reused and recycled, and our non-woven and PE bags can be reused. And our natural fiber bags, manufactured from jute, cotton or juco (a jute/cotton blend), are environmentally-friendly packaging products that are strong and cost efficient. These natural fiber bags are fully sustainable resources and can be reused for years, often becoming a household fixture.
We’ve also taken the step to become certified by major reputable sustainability organizations, as further proof of our commitment to use sustainable resources and ensure the availability of materials and green spaces for future generations. Our sustainability certifications include industry-standard process and production certifications, as well as specialty certifications for excellence in other ares.

With threats to free commerce becoming more commonplace, the Customs/Trade Partnership Against Terrorism is a voluntary government-business initiative, fostering relationships that improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security. The initiative works with importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed custom brokers, and manufacturers to ensure the integrity of security practices and verify the security of business partners within the supply chain.
EPI is the developer, licensor and distributor of Totally Degradable Plastic Additives (TDPA®). EPI’s technology has been designed to control and manage the lifetime of products made from the most common plastics used by modern society. Due to stringent laws governing the use of terms like “degradable”, “biodegradable”, and “compostable” in many parts of the USA, companies like EPI, working in concert with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), offer a seal of quality to those companies that voluntarily participate in quantifying their use of such terms.
