Sustainability is more than a trend – it's a long-term shift in thinking.
We believe that an eco-friendly future begins with small steps. And when backed by organization-wide commitment, the small steps add up to real progress. At PCNA, our EcoSmart® program is the driving force behind the actions we're taking to move our organization, and the industry, toward a more sustainable future.
We're building on our legacy as an eco-friendly leader, identifying new opportunities and creating sustainable products that are good for brands and better for the planet.
With EcoSmart, we've made it easy to find the best sustainable products and make good choices for the planet.
A Changing Culture
You've been loud and clear – interest in eco-friendly products has never been greater. This demand comes from a changing culture, where plastic waste reduction is celebrated and laws banning single-use plastics are popping up all over the U.S. and Canada.
Consumers today feel empowered and want to support sustainability. In a new survey of over 3,000 consumers in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., international creative agency Futerra discovered that 96% of people feel their own actions, such as donating, recycling or buying ethically, can make a difference. Additionally, 88% of respondents said they look to brands and companies to help them be more environmentally friendly and ethical in their daily lives.
We're working hard to bring you the industry's best collection of sustainable products and apparel. The EcoSmart collection is 100 products and growing, with more being designed and developed all the time. Made with eco-friendly materials like bamboo, wheat straw and recycled PET, we've also made sure everything has a look you'll love.
And since we know our customers love retail brands, we brought some great ones on board. CamelBak, Parkland and FinalStraw all share our passion for making a difference. We think you'll love their high-quality, eco-friendly products.
We also realize every budget is different, so we've made sure that going sustainable doesn't have to be more expensive. Our budget-priced options mean you don't have to spend a lot to do little bit of good.
You're doing your part by choosing sustainable products, and we want to do ours. That's why we've partnered with 1% For The Planet, an organization that enables businesses to directly support environmental nonprofits through financial contributions.
We donate one percent of EcoSmart product sales to two environmental nonprofits, Well Aware and One Tree Planted. Well Aware builds clean water systems in eastern areas of Africa, while One Tree Planted is committed to reforestation projects around the world.
The Bottom Line
We all want to make better choices for the planet. That's why we've simplified sustainability with EcoSmart, your single source for all things eco-friendly.
