Sustainability

S&V Labs has a 30 year tradition of commitment to sustainability. We do our best to lessen our environmental impact and keep our footprint as small as possible. We offer natural and organic product formulations that are biodegradable and petro-chemical free. Many of our formulas are concentrated, which helps reduce fuel consumption and pollution from shipping water. We offer many packaging options that include recycled, regrind, compostable or recyclable materials. We also have aqueous varnishes and soy inks for use on packaging, and 100% post consumer recycled materials for shipper cartons. We recycle over 250,000 pounds of corrugate annually. The last load of cardboard recycling weighed over 37,000 lbs!
