Gone Green: 18% of ATA Carnet Jackets Now Reused

Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Five years ago, boomerang carnets┬« launched a Go Green option for their ATA Carnet applicants. Since then 7,025 or 18% of all carnets issued used recycled jackets, fasteners and instruction pages.  A recycled jacket is one that is only lightly used and can still be relied upon to protect the enclosed ATA Carnet.

Opting In To Reusing Carnet Supplies

We offer customers the option of a recycled carnet jacket, fastener and instruction page when they order their carnet. By selecting a check box on their application*, applicants can opt-in to receiving a carnet with a lightly-used jacket, reused fastener and recycled instruction page. We apply a small sticker on the recycled jacket to let the recipient know that the applicant has requested the re-used product.

More You Can Do To Help

Another way to contribute to reducing our carbon footprint is to pick up your carnet at one of our local offices instead of having it delivered by overnight courier which uses jet fuel. If local pick-up is an option for you, we can arrange to have your carnet printed in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles or San Francisco.

* Here's how the check box appears on the carnet application.
