We are always driving improvements in the sustainability of packaging across CS4Senior’s supply chain, starting with our own packaging and our own operations.
We pursue multi-year waste reduction initiatives to promote easy-to-open, 100% recyclable packaging and to ship products in their own packages without additional shipping boxes.
At CS4Seniors, we work hard to ensure that every CS4Seniors product our customers buy is made in a way that ensures respect for the rights of workers in CS4Seniors’ supply chain and throughout our operations. Our teams work on a continuous improvement model, researching and identifying risks in places where we source and operate, and designing programs to ensure that we build the capability to understand and mitigate those risks.
CS4Seniors is strongly committed to conducting our business in a lawful and ethical manner, including engaging with suppliers that are committed to the same principles. We require suppliers in our manufacturing supply chain to comply with our Supply Chain Standards. CS4Seniors also expects our suppliers to hold their suppliers and subcontractors to the standards and practices covered by our Supplier Code of Conduct.

We partner closely with our suppliers to drive continuous improvement in worker conditions. We train our suppliers on the standards and conduct required by our Supplier Code of Conduct.

Since 2015, we’ve saved more than 1.6 billion boxes and eliminated nearly 1 million tons of waste through our Frustration-Free Packaging programs.
