As a Certified B Corp, AMS is thoroughly committed to the environment. Our company culture promotes “thinking green” in our day-to-day lives, and we support local initiatives to help clean environmentally sensitive areas.
AMS has been an eco-friendly e-commerce fulfillment services company from the start, committed to proper recycling of bottles and cans, corrugate materials and plastics. Over time, our commitment to eco-friendly logistics has evolved into a companywide effort to go green wherever possible — from the goods we purchase to the practices we undertake to lessen our ecological footprint and that of our clients.
The Green Team at AMS reviewed our processes in detail. In addition to replacing traditional cleaning supplies with earth-friendly bulk products featuring refillable dispensers, we eliminate paper usage wherever possible as we move toward electronic and hand-held technologies.
The team enhanced our recycling capabilities by adding corrugate bailers in every facility, and our recycling partner accepts “sandwiches” that combine plastic and corrugate in bails. Separate receptacles for plastic, corrugate, aluminum, wood, and non-recyclables are found throughout our facilities.
Fulfillment companies are in a unique position in the global effort to protect our planet’s natural resources, and AMS makes a difference:

Hemp products are very versatile with different hemp materials creating biopolymers that can be used in many facets of the plastics industry. And many other environmentally friendly logistics solutions are currently in development, such as:
