At GLTC, our mission is to be a one-stop-shop for products that allow people to reduce their waste and carbon footprint. We focus on alternatives to the single-use and plastic products that we all use everyday.
Our zero waste products enable people to reduce the amount of waste they send to landfills, oceans, and other environments where it can harm humans or disrupt ecosystems.
At GLTC, we ship almost all of our products without using plastic. Our boxes are post-consumer and for delicate orders, we pad our box with post-consumer and recyclable paper packing material. Boxes are sealed with a non-reinforced paper tape. This tape uses a plant-based glue and is water activated, meaning it’s also recyclable and compostable.
Additionally, we partner with Carbonfund.org to offset the carbon emissions that we cannot reduce, such as fuel for shipping, and we purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (REC’s) from Arcadia Power to power our headquarters.
“As a retailer of zero-waste products, environmental commitment is woven into every aspect of our operations—from product sourcing, shipping materials, printing, energy efficiency, and more. Partnering with Carbonfund.org helps us meet these challenges.” – Sasha Mazur
