Whether it’s delivery boxes or detergent bottles, doesn’t it often feel like the buildup of packaging is relentless? And nearly 80 million tons of it end up as waste yearly in the U.S.

That’s why, every year, the GH Institute and Made Safe team up to host our annual Raise the Green Bar Summit, a daylong event designed to help companies create more sustainable products and practices for you. Not only are brands (big and small) prioritizing efforts to recycle, reuse, and reduce waste, but consumers are asking us more and more about good-for-the-planet buys.

This year, our sustainability experts scoured the market to find the products that use less “stuff” to deliver the goods. Check out the winners of our first-ever Sustainable Packaging Awards below.
