Green Ox Pallet Technology, LLC earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Certification and Label by the BioPreferred® program in February, 2016, making our pallets the only Biobased pallets.
The certification verifies that the amount of renewable biobased ingredients in our pallets meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA.
The USDA BioPreferred program was created by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill), and expanded by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). The purpose is to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. The United States Department of Agriculture manages
the program. Products that meet the USDA BioPreferred program requirements carry a distinctive label for easier identification by the consumer.
