Packaging with purpose

Here at Excel, sustainability is a living ethos that evolves with technology and the changing needs of our people and community.

We believe sustainability begins within our company, not our products. It’s about caring for our employees, our customers, our community, and our environment.

Empowering our employees to excel

Our employees are everything to us. So we do everything we can to keep them fulfilled. We provide flexible hours, the ability to work from home, and a kitchen stocked with healthy and organic foods. We also give everyone money toward a gym membership and paid volunteer hours at the charities they choose.

Doing our part to help you do yours

We know you want sustainable solutions—and your customers do, too. That’s why we offer a variety of sustainable materials, from high-barrier pouches that can be recycled in curbside bins, to packaging made from post-consumer plastics. We also have PLA film made from renewable corn and sugarcane.

of consumers will be more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues.

When our community thrives, we all do

Caring for our community is something we care deeply about.

Every year we take time to volunteer, whether it’s packing food boxes at our Pack it Forward event, helping families at the Orange County Rescue Mission’s Village of Hope, or planting native species in a nearby nature preserve.

Big steps to leave a smaller footprint

We know packaging can have a huge impact on our environment, so we’re working hard to reduce it. We power our headquarters with solar energy. We use EPA-certified chemicals. We capture heat from our machines. And we use renewable and sustainable materials in our packaging. And that’s just for starters.

Audits to improve your packaging. And your impact.

We’d love nothing more than to do a packaging audit with you to find the most sustainable solutions. This can result in fuller but lighter weight bags, more efficient shipping, and packaging that meets both your logistics and long-term goals.
