We provide governmental agencies, companies, and consumers with the world’s newest and most unique money-saving ways to store and transport goods and documents. Our Box Latch™ Products have exceptional application & value in closed loop situations where they allow boxes to be closed, moved, reopened, re-closed and, ultimately, returned to restart the cycle without the need for messy-to-use, box-damaging tape.
Eco-Latch Systems, LLC (ELS) is a Wisconsin small business entity founded in May of 2010 with two key objectives:
- Save money for purchasers as they re-use their boxes multiple times (example: a $1.00 box re-used 10 times costs only ¢.10 per use).
- Reduce our worldwide carbon footprint by re-using corrugated boxes rather than just recycling them.

- Provides a way to tout your organization’s sustainability mission through box re-use instead of and prior to recycling!
- Each ton of re-used paper saves 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, nine cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water representing a 64% energy savings, 58% water savings, and 60 lbs less air pollution! Multiply this by five to ten re-uses times millions of boxes, and the combined monetary and environmental impact is monumental.
