Happy World Environment Day from Priority Envelope!

Posted on by

World Environment Day occurs on the 5th of June every year, and is the United Nation’s principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of our environment. First held in 1974, it has been a flagship campaign for raising awareness on emerging environmental issues from marine pollution, human overpopulation, and global warming, to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime.

Since its’ inception in 1996, Priority Envelope has taken inspiration from the UN and prided itself on being an eco-friendly and innovative company. We continue to look for ways to be “greener” and enjoy learning about new ways to operate our business in a sustainable manner.

In 2017 alone, Priority Envelope recycled over 2,837.64 tons of paper. That number is huge especially when you consider that recycling 1 ton of paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy (enough to power the average U.S. home for six months), and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one metric ton of carbon equivalent.

We’ll continue to focus on novel ways to recycle and help our environment. Stay tuned for updates on what we do in 2018, and Happy World Environment Day from the team at Priority Envelope! #gogreen #priorities #pushtheenvelope
