This initiative is managed and administered by GreenPrint, a global environmental technology company.

IMPACT COLLECTIVE offers its members several turnkey sustainability solutions designed to immediately improve the environmental impact of their product’s packaging. Leveraging patented technology, IMPACT members’ carbon, plastic, energy, and/or water consumptions are calculated and offset through investments in certified projects.

Greenhouse gases are the main cause of climate change. By investing in certified carbon dioxide equivalent reduction projects like reforestation, landfill gas capture, alternative energy, methane reduction and industrial process, IMPACT COLLECTIVE members like Chella are reducing their carbon footprint. According to Earth Day Network, it’s projected that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight). Chella is working with IMPACT COLLECTIVE to offset plastic usage by supporting plastic mitigation programs in Haiti, Indonesia and the Philippines to reclaim ocean bound plastic from the environment.
“As we continue to partner with companies within the CPG space, we are proud to include Chella as an IMPACT COLLECTIVE member,” said Pete Davis, founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “Together, we are empowered to be responsible stewards of our planet and are working to drive the industry to become more sustainable, one step at a time.”
