Eco-Friendly Solutions

Get your business on track to a sustainable future.

Begin Building A Sustainable Future

EBP is committed to helping our customers minimize their ecological footprint by developing cleaning programs and foodservice packaging programs that are more sustainable.

We can help you develop a customized program to meet your goals by using one of our most forward-thinking initiatives, our Building a Sustainable Future program. It was created from green initiative standards developed by leading organizations, not only in the industry, but in the world.

The Building a Sustainable Future program begins with an assessment of your current situation. We use that information, combined with our category expertise and sustainability standards developed by third-parties, to create your program. Once developed, we help you implement the program and measure the results over time in order to create lasting, positive change.  

Whether your business needs a cleaning or foodservice program, or both, EBP can provide guidance and expertise to help you shine. 

Build Your Green Cleaning Program

The demand for more sustainable buildings is growing.  This creates greater responsibility for you to develop smarter solutions and more measurable outcomes regarding the environmental impact of your facility.

EBP can help you establish and execute your green cleaning program using a three step system:

DEVELOP

YOUR POLICY

EBP helps you develop a blueprint for success by combining U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) standards with your sustainability goals.

We are fully versed in LEED certification requirements and can help you formulate a practical sustainability policy. With that in place, we will review your facility’s current products and procedures to develop a program to support your sustainability goals.   

 

IMPLEMENT

YOUR PROGRAM

We make the adoption of your newly developed green cleaning program easy to implement with our product selection and industry-certified training.   

EBP takes a comprehensive approach, combining eco-friendly cleaning supplies, best practices for using them, resource planning and staff training.

Our ISSA CMI certified trainers can coach your team on the latest cleaning procedures and how to use industrial cleaning equipment and commercial cleaning supplies safely.  

MEASURE

YOUR EFFECTIVENESS

The quality of your cleaning is defined by measurable outcomes, and EBP Specialists can help you perform regular audits of your site that benchmark, analyze, and report on purchasing patterns and equipment usage.

EBP Specialists will help you understand your custodial effectiveness by comparing your performance against industry recognized APPA Levels of Cleanliness standards. 

Based on our findings, our Specialists can provide you with additional recommendations on how to make further improvements to better optimize your processes.

Build Your Green Food Packaging Program

Streamlining eco-friendly food packaging into your business can be complex. To help you take advantage of these opportunities, EBP uses its foodservice experience to develop comprehensive programs which go beyond just sourcing green products.

EBP provides guidance to help in a variety of ways:

EDUCATE

YOUR ORGANIZATION

Getting buy-in from others in your organization is important for any change, and going green is no different. EBP can help you explain to your staff why green is valuable and teach them how to implement green practices into day-to-day operations.

We will make sure your organization has an understanding of the importance of selecting sustainable foodservice packaging, and then train them on how to implement and manage the disposal of the products. 

SELECT

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS

Eco-friendly food packaging can strengthen your image and create cost efficiencies at the same time.

Not all sustainable foodservice packaging is the same, and products can vary in performance, price, and appearance.  To support your specific needs and budget, EBP offers a large selection of green foodservice packaging that has been curated from sustainably harvested materials and/or recycled content. 

We help you select products that will “close the product loop” and can be reused, recycled, composted or turned into energy without sacrificing performance, look, or price.

UNDERSTAND

DISPOSAL OPTIONS

When developing a sustainable foodservice packaging program, one must start with the end in mind.

It’s important to understand what happens to the product after it is used and leaves your facility. End-of-life management not only positively benefits the environment but can positively affect your bottom line. 

Since no product can be composted in a landfill, EBP helps you close the product loop with green options that can be reused, recycled, composted or turned into energy.

Let EBP Help You Shine

Whether you need a green cleaning program, a foodservice packaging program or both, EBP can show you how to get the most out of a comprehensive green program that goes beyond just sourcing. We will help you achieve your sustainability objectives and see the economic and environmental benefits of a green program.
