In a world of unicorns,
be a zebra.

Unicorns are cool, but (sadly) not real. They’re all show, no go. All icing, no cake. All sizzle, no steak. You get the idea.

Zebras though? Resilient and spirited, they look out for one another even as they run toward the horizon. Plus, they are real.

Less sparkle, more substance – like zebras, we are after that too. That’s why we are passionate about being a thoughtful and responsible company that cares for our people with a business model that protects our planet. We are carving a sustainable, resilient and profitable path – with our head in the clouds, and feet on the ground.

And before you think zebras lack the sparkle of our mythical friends, let us remind you what a group of zebras are called – a dazzle. That’s right. Together, we shine brilliantly.

Thriving in the Circular Economy

For us, sustainability is a way of living that influences everything we do. We don’t just create reusable packaging solutions, and then call it a day. Championing a resource-efficient, circular economy is a central priority for us. It has been for three decades.

Our commitment to designing innovative solutions that drive savings across the fresh grocery supply chain makes our reusable packaging solutions an easy choice. Operational efficiencies and environmental benefits – in one swoop. Our customers have reduced product damage by over 96% and reduced CO2 emissions by up to 60% since switching to our products and services based on our share-and-reuse supply chain model.

We are here to make a difference – join us in our mission to build a more equitable and sustainable future. Because, really, it’s time to stop looking at it as someone else’s problem to solve.

“Thanks to the passion and drive of our employees, we have been able to provide sustainability benefits to our customers at a scale that was unthinkable 30 years ago.”
