For Businesses Who Want to Reduce Their Plastic Waste

An honour audit Program

Green goals has developed a collection of posters that can be used digitally or in hard copy format to let your customers know what sustainable lifestyle choices you are supporting. Each poster allows you to communicate to your customer that you support the practice of accepting reusable food containers, coffee mugs, cutlery or bottles at time of each business transaction.  If you use plant-based takeaway containers,  you can also tell your customers this as well! If you don't, just don't put that poster qualifier up. You decide what standard you want to keep for yourself.

No one from Green Goals will be coming to your business to fill out any checklists or certification paperwork. There is no auditing process because your customers are the auditors.  If they see you are not complying to your own low waste commitments,  they will let the public know themselves via social media and word of mouth. It is the honour system at it's best.

This program gives you the freedom to implement your own strategies to address the current climate crisis at the store front level at a realistic pace that works best for your business model. There is currently no expectation for you to immediately comply to all of the suggested strategies to reduce your business's waste output. However, there are a lot of indications given by public demand and proposed government legislation that many of these commitments will be required in the foreseeable future. Why not be ahead of that climate eight ball?  

By purchasing this product, you will receive all digital copies of each standard. Having access to all of the poster options from day one, allows you to update the public of your progress without the hassle of completing any more documentation with Green Goals.  You can put your preferred poster in a convenient location in your store, and update your progress using social media. Green Goals will share your environmental commitment to the community using our social media accounts as well, so people who are sustainably focused will want to buy products and services from you.

There is an undeniable growing movement of citizens who want to reduce their own individual plastic waste consumption.  This package allows you to meet your customers demands without threatening your livelihood. Show the world that they can vote with their dollar by shopping at your store because you are also wanting a greener community.

Requirements to Purchase Green Goals Seal

Green goals requires that you agree not to use styrofoam packaging at all. Styrofoam can't be recycled at all, so having it part of your inventory is pretty much saying that you don't understand the need to get pointless packaging out of the landfills.  


A Green Goals decal must be seen at the door/front window or by the cash register. Accompanying qualifier poster can be posted with it, or shared to your followers over social media so they are aware of what you are committing to.

The profits from this purchase goes towards Green Goal's sustainable starter kit initiative to offer households who cannot afford to get started on their low waste journey on their own the tools to get started.  By purchasing this package, you are directly helping the people around you solve our current climate crisis.
