Sample reuse makes
zero landfill achievable.
Material Bank trays are reusable and returnable. Our free sample return program places over 50% of returned samples back into sample recirculation. The balance of lightly used samples are donated to local organizations and used for our University Program. The goal of our re-use program is to keep sample materials out of landfills and minimize down-cycling.
Material Bank helps members make sustainability focused sample selections by collaborating with mindful MATERIALS. As an extension to our comprehensive environmental & health certification product search filters, members can also search for brands found on mindful MATERIALS. » Learn More
