MINDFUL. RESPONSIBLE. SUSTAINABLE.

Our Sustainability Programs

At Bedford, we want to ensure our products make a big impact in consumer’s daily lives, with a minimal impact where the environment is concerned.

That’s why we weigh potential environmental impact in each decision we make. We’re encouraged with our sustainable initiatives to date, but know achieving a sustainable future is an ongoing effort.

A variety of Bedford products, including ElastiTag hang tags, product tie, twist tie, bag clip, and coffee tie.

Product lifecycle now begins and ends with us.

“Are twist ties recyclable?” You’ve asked the question, and we’ve answered with our new TagBack® initiative. The program helps alleviate the sustainability gaps left by the American recycling system, giving consumers the ability to responsibly return any Bedford tie, tag, or clip to divert from landfills.

WASTE REDUCTION BEGINS WITH PRODUCT DESIGN

We design our products with the future in mind.
That means creating reduced-plastic packaging and bundling alternatives.

GROWING RESPONSIBLY

Facility

As our business grows, we implement careful planning to ensure we’re expanding our blueprint, not our footprint. This means making good use of natural lighting, insulating with spray foam, and heating our plant by a closed-loop chilling system.

Manufacturing Lines

Our closed-loop manufacturing process stretches our materials to their highest potential. By making our “outputs” into “inputs,” we’re able to create quality products while reducing waste.
