The public can now access an online library of environmental justice-related resources through the U.S. EPA’s Environmental Justice Clearinghouse unveiled last week. The purpose of the searchable library is to make it easier and more efficient for advocates and stakeholders to access resources that could propel their work, according to the agency. “Everyone interested in environmental justice will be able to find resources on one website,” Jalonne White-Newsome, federal chief environmental justice officer for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, said in a statement.  The library includes over 200 resources such as available funding opportunities, screening and mapping tools, federal research and guides and information about organizations with specific subject-matter expertise. The National League of Cities’ sustainability director, Peyton Siler Jones, said in an email that the clearinghouse “offers a navigable set of useful resources that municipal leaders can use to inform their planning, policy, and funding to center environmental justice in their climate work.” Siler Jones said that the information in the database makes an “excellent start” at providing cities, towns and villages with the variety of resources they need for environmental justice work. The Biden administration says it has made environmental justice a central part of its agenda and is doling out billions of dollars for local projects. The clearinghouse, established through an executive order signed in April 2023, builds upon that work. “President Biden tasked the entire federal government with breaking down barriers to resources and information that help communities pursue environmental justice,” White-Newsome said. The resources currently in the online library are based on submissions from federal agencies, but the EPA hopes to add to the library on a rolling basis with suggestions submitted by the public. “It will only be made stronger with suggestions from the American people,” Theresa Segovia, principal deputy assistant director for the EPA’s Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights, said in a statement. Submissions must be free, publicly available and link to a non-editable document like a PDF or website. “The opportunity to provide feedback here will allow the tool to evolve over time to address the needs of diverse stakeholders,” Siler Jones said.

Stamp of Approval: Understanding a Box’s Certification Stamp

Cardboard boxes, in their myriad forms, hold a pivotal role in packaging diverse items. Yet, amidst their varying thicknesses, designs, and sizes, there exists a subtle but significant feature—the box maker’s certification stamp. Often nestled inconspicuously at the box’s base, this stamp holds the key to understanding the box’s narrative.

Each certification stamp is a testament to meticulous testing and adherence to specific criteria. Before delving into its narrative, it’s essential to recognize the two primary strength tests applied to cardboard boxes: the Mullen test and the Edge Crush Test (ECT)

.The Mullen Test

  • Manufacturer: Among the initial details on the stamp lies the identity of the box manufacturer, providing insights into its origins
  • Thickness: Listed alongside the manufacturer, this denotes the wall thickness, ranging from single to triple wall, the latter often reserved for specialized applications.
  • Bursting Test: Evaluates the box’s resistance to wall punctures, ensuring its durability.
  • Minimum combined Weight Facings: The total weight of the manufactured liner before it’s cut down into boxes.
  • Size Limit: Lists the total sum of the outside dimensions of the box.
  • Gross Weight Limit: Establishes the maximum permissible weight for both box and contents, ensuring safe transit.
  • City & State: Provides the manufacturing location, aiding in quality control and issue resolution.

Edge Crush Test (ECT)

  • Manufacturer: Similar to the Mullen Test, this identifies the company behind the box’s creation.
  • Thickness: Indicates the box’s wall configuration, be it single, double, or triple wall, affecting its strength.
  • Edge Crush Test: Quantifies the box’s strength through a concise two-digit number.
  • Size Limit: Mirroring its Mullen counterpart, this defines the box’s maximum external dimensions.
  • Gross Weight Limit: Specifies the maximum allowable weight for box and contents, safeguarding against overloading.
  • City & State: Identifies the manufacturing location, aiding in traceability and quality assurance.

Understanding the certification stamp not only unveils the box’s narrative but also equips one with crucial insights into its limitations. It serves as a beacon, guiding users through the complexities of packaging, ensuring safe and efficient transit of goods.
