Amount of renewable biobased ingredients in pallets meets or exceeds levels set by USDA

“Receiving BioPreferred® certification is an important product distinction that will help Green Ox get our corrugated pallets in the hands of companies who not only want to save money, but also the environment."

Green Ox Pallet Technology, LLC has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label for its Green Ox Pallet. The USDA Certified Biobased Product Label verifies that the product or product family’s amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. Biobased products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry, or marine ingredients.

“Receiving BioPreferred® certification is an important product distinction that will help Green Ox get our corrugated pallets in the hands of companies who not only want to save money, but also the environment,” said Mike Mathews, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing.

All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA. Consumers may feel secure in the accuracy of the biobased amount and be empowered in making better informed purchasing decisions.

"We are proud that Green Ox Pallet Technology, LLC has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label," said Kate Lewis, USDA BioPreferred Deputy Program Manager. "Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities and help our nation decrease its reliance on foreign-sourced and non-renewable petroleum."

The label is estimated to be on certified products and available for consumers by March 1, 2016.
