Crystal Creek Logistics, Frozen Fulfillment Company, Goes Green
Crystal Creek is one of the only fulfillment companies to offer a fully biodegradable alternative to styrofoam packaging.
Among other projects implemented recently, Crystal Creek has gone solar with the placement of a solar array on the roof of their 43,000 square foot west-coast facility. As an EPA Green Power Partner, their remaining power needs come from the purchase of clean wind energy.
The emissions from every package Crystal Creek ships is offset by the purchase of carbon credits and tree planting. They have partnered with NSEA, a Whatcom County salmon enhancement organization, to plant thousands of trees along local streams and creeks. The trees pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and provide critical shade to keep the water cool for salmon.
Crystal Creek has implemented a commitment toward zero waste in all of its three facilities. Increased recycling rates has reduced Crystal Creek’s landfill waste by over 50 percent per year, the equivalent of 20 standard dump truck loads diverted from the landfill.
The company has also recently been issued their B Corp Certification – a certification that to date, only around 1,400 companies worldwide have been able to attain. Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
