Changing The Way The World Close’s & Re-Uses Boxes
Certified B Corporation
A smarter way to do business!
The owners of Eco-Latch Systems, LLC and their Box Latch Products™ are proud to announce that in November 2016, we became Wisconsin’s 4th Certified B Corporation™. Joining this elite group of companies is an excellent way for our business to demonstrate our values in a transparent manner. Simply put, we believe that businesses should be a force for positive good in the world. We further believe that by adopting a triple bottom line approach to the management of our business, we will be able to do good while helping our customers to be successful.
What are Certified B Corporations™ ?
B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet and benefit from rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,974 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

As a certified B Corporation™ we seek to encourage a corporate culture of corrugated cardboard box Re-Use. Our mission is simple and our products offer cost effective solutions. Our challenge, however, is to demonstrate to the business world that they, too, can create a “re-use cycle” within their operations in place of “recycling” as the lone solution to corrugated cardboard box waste. Over 90% of cardboard boxes are used just once. For every ton of cardboard (1,500 – 2,000 boxes) that is Re-Used, we can save:
- nine cubic yards of landfill,
- 380 gallons of oil,
- 4,000 kilowatts of energy,
- 7,000 gallons of water, and
- 17 trees – Saving
- 64% of the energy,
- 58% of the water,
- while eliminating 60 lbs. of air pollution!
Box Latch™ Products seek to educate and change the mindset within the manufacturing, distribution, storage, transportation, and fulfillment facilities of corporations around the world. We believe that business should be a force for positive good in the world and we hope that our products can help businesses to realize triple bottom line (corporate social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and economic viability) benefits.
