Dolphin Blue, Inc.
Texas, United States
General retail via Internet
Dolphin Blue's business goal is to provide ecologically sustainable products for use in home and business. They are an on-line retailer of paper products, tableware, children’s toys, pet products, remanufactured toner cartridges, calendars, envelopes, garden products and much more. Their mission is: To serve as your trusted source of the world’s most environmentally and socially responsible products - to assure your well being and a healthy, sustainable planet. Today, it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between virgin materials and quality post-consumer recycled materials. In order to make it onto Dolphin Blue's virtual "shelves," a product must be made of at least 20% post-consumer recycled materials and made in the USA. In addition, they favor products that come from sources that are certified for sustainability, particularly in their papers. 100% post-consumer recycled, Forest Stewardship Council certified, processed chlorine free, made carbon neutral or carbon plus with renewable energy - these are all characteristics that determine whether a product makes it into their online catalog.
