The Home Depot Canada and Pratt Industries, bringing sustainability home.

A circular economy is one in which a continuous cycle exists, where waste is converted for use in new products. This regenerative, waste-free model results in a profound reduction in the impact humans have on the environment. One simple way to achieve this is recycling, and when we think of recycling, we think of Pratt Industries.

Pratt Industries has been a leader in recycled paper and packaging for over 30 years. Their commitment to sustainability has earned them global recognition for environmental stewardship and has made them an ideal partner and supplier for The Home Depot Canada. 

All moving and storage boxes sold at The Home Depot Canada are made by Pratt Industries and are made with 100 percent post-consumer recycled material. On top of that, not one single tree is used in the making of our moving and storage boxes.

This is achieved by using recovered fiber which is collected from household and business recycling programs and given new life by this circular process: 

  • separated at a materials recovery facility
  • transported to a paper mill
  • broken down, cleaned, screened and pressed
  • converted at a corrugator
  • shipped to a The Home Depot Canada store in the form of new boxes

Pratt’s focus is on recovering recyclable materials and turning OCC (old corrugated containers) and mixed paper into new paper-based packaging solutions. Their operation is enormous. Every day, Pratt receives 360 truckloads of recovered paper, and every year, they reclaim three million tons of recyclable materials. This shows the power of recycling and the profitability of sustainability. 

Pratt’s process has a daily environmental impact of:

  • 85,000 trees saved
  • 16,500 cubic yards of waste diverted from landfills
  • 35 million gallons of water saved
  • 20 million kWh of electricity saved
  • 5,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions saved

Landfill avoidance is a primary goal for Pratt Industries and demonstrates the company’s strong conviction to preserving the environment and the earth’s resources, however it’s not their only goal. The company’s success has been built on sustainability. Pratt operates a clean energy plant where materials that are otherwise destined for the landfill are gasified and converted to clean energy.
