Young Living Essential Oils has extended its focus on sustainability initiatives to its packaging and shipping materials. Working with Packaging Corporation of America (PCA), Young Living designed new, downsized boxes and bags that are 100% recyclable and made from materials that are responsibly sourced.
As a bonus, the new boxes feature nature-inspired patterns that are meant to be colored in, encouraging a family-friendly activity for kids eager to turn the boxes into forts and unique works of art.
“We strive to be stewards of the earth,” said Prasad Gankanda, Young Living Chief Operating Officer. “As the global leader in the essential oils space, we are committed to preserving the environment and making a positive impact in all that we do.”
PCA is compliant with the U.S. Lacey Act, Endangered Species Act, and the Clean Water Act, and also prioritizes managed forestry to prevent the depletion of natural resources.
“PCA values align with our sustainability initiatives,” Gankanda said. “We’re excited that together we can amplify our shared commitment to the environment, while providing the high-quality end product that our customers expect from us.”
