Slash Packaging

Hello? Yes, it’s Earth calling. Yeah, the planet. I’m calling to find out if I can get you to share your plan for sustainable packaging.

How? I’m glad you asked. Add a page on your website at /packaging that lets your customers know you’ve got a plan to take care of me. Trust me, they’ll be happy you do. And so will I.

How to join

To join Slash Packaging, add a page to your site at domain.com/packaging. You can also redirect from that URL to an existing page on your site. When the URL is ready, submit your company here.

Why join?

Most websites have a /about page, by adding a /packaging page you become part of standardizing access to packaging information. Having a /packaging page also helps people know that you are thinking about the issue of packaging sustainability.
