“We have been working with Green Purpose, LLC and have been consistently impressed with the high-quality labels and posters we purchased to improve our existing recycling containers. Since we implemented their color-coded labels and signs, we have witnessed a dramatic decrease in contamination rates and many more associates participating in the program than before. Their products are the best we have used thus far and allow our facilities to have a universal appearance and attractive aesthetic. Another aspect of Green Purpose we value is their unmatched ability to customize any sign that we request, and they do it in a timely manner until it is exactly the way we want it. Green Purpose products work in a variety of different situations and have allowed our team to save thousands from not having to purchase all new containers. Thanks Green Purpose!”

“I was very pleased with the color-coded recycling posters that we ordered from Green Purpose, LLC. They complement our existing recycling systems very well, are visually intuitive, and are easy to understand. What’s really exciting is that all of our employees are paying attention and reading the posters. I have also noticed that the materials are actually being separated correctly. This is a huge improvement to our existing recycling program.”

I found that they were a perfect fit for our recycling containers, bright and concise in the description of what each recycling container is for, durable and extremely easy to use. I look forward to future orders with your company.”
- Lisa, Office Administrator at FedEx Ground hub in Maryland
“The amount of tonnage our waste vendors have taken to the landfill for our manufacturing facility has reduced significantly. That of course resulted in a decrease of cost to move it by our waste vendors—a cost savings. We used to pay to have a company pick up our waste paper products to recycle them. Now, we are getting paid for that paper. Same situation exists with plastic bottles. They are no longer being put in the trash nor are we paying to have them hauled off. Instead they are all being recycled. Damaged pallets are no longer being picked up by our pallet vendor, they are being recycled and we have turned them into added income. Lastly, we are being paid more for our cardboard/corrugated bundles than we were before. In all, our carbon footprint has decreased, our income has increased, and our headaches have been fewer. All because of the great work Green Purpose is doing for us right now. Their cooperation to adapt to our business environment has been refreshing. ”
