The bottom of our new shopping bags, for Ben’s Garden retail stores. A new, innovative way for consumers to be more informed about their environmental impact and carbon footprint. It prompts you to scan our “Ben’s ID” QR code. Ben decided- “If we’re going to live on this planet together, everybody should know where and how things are made. Purveyors should be accountable and consumers responsible.” When you scan a “Ben’s ID” QR code, you learn about the Ben’s Garden significant environmental initiatives, which we’re so proud of and how to reuse and recycle the specific item or packaging you’re holding. Easily understand what’s disposable and where you can responsibly recycle it. We’re all a part of the solution.
Inspired initially and boldly, by the journey of his brother Jonathan while at college in Maine, and by our responsibility to climate change and Greta Thunberg; we have reimagined how we think about how we construct everything and transitioned to FSC-certified paper stock, printing presses powered by wind power, clear bags which dissolve in water (which are made from corn), packing peanuts made from cornstarch- and this is just to name a few. We share one planet, forever. It is our duty and true responsibility to take care of it for our children and their children.
