(PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Marketing Xocolate International Corporation (MXI-Corp) has released its corporate social responsibility statement, highlighting its commitment to leaving as small of an environmental footprint as possible. MXI-Corp demonstrates its corporate social responsibility efforts through its guidelines for several of its practices and operations, including ingredient and business practices and packaging materials. Additionally, the company has posted drop-off locations for Styrofoam to be properly recycled.
“Our corporation implemented this corporate social responsibility initiative because we feel it is the responsibility of everyone—our company, each member of our network and our customers—to reduce their environmental impact,” said Andrew Brooks, founder and executive vice president of MXI-Corp. “Whether it is through ingredient practices, packaging materials or business practices, we can all do one small thing to reduce our footprint.”
MXI-Corp commits to using 100-percent ethically traded cacao and açaí. All cacao used in Xocai products is purchased from small, family-owned and operated farms, where farmers are provided with fair wages and humane working conditions. All açaí used in Xoçai™ products is harvested by local communities from wild, uncultivated area, protected by the rain forest canopy. Additional information on MXI-Corp's commitment to maintaining its ingredient practices is available on the company Website.
All MXI-Corp Xoçai™ packaging materials are made with renewable or eco-friendly materials and are triple certified by the three major environmental oversight organizations (Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forest Initiative and Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes). Additionally, MXI-Corp pledges that all future Xoçai™ packaging will maintain these certifications.
“As a long-time, founding distributor, the corporate social responsibility statement is really something I can stand behind and promote to my customers and fellow distributors,” said Adam Green, MXI-Corp Ambassador and Multi-Millionaire Member and owner of Winner’s Circle International. “This commitment to leave as small of an environmental footprint as possible is another great part of the Xocai product line.”
As an international corporation, MXI-Corp maintains its socially responsible business practices worldwide. MXI-Corp pledges that no harmful ingredients or genetically modified organisms are used in products. All products are certified by Brunswick Labs, an independent, third-party agency. The company also sets itself apart with its employee profit-sharing program. It prides itself as a network marketing corporation, rather than a retail operation.
Styrofoam (EPS packaging) drop-off locations
EPS packaging material, which is used in the packaging of many MXI-Corp products, is a recyclable material. To take advantage of EPS recycling facilities in your area, MXI-Corp has included a section on its Website listing locations by state. MXI-Corp encourages all distributors and customers to recycle EPS and any other packaging materials.
