Sustainability

Don’t compromise

Sustainability and beautiful packaging go hand in hand

When customers want sustainable and biodegradable packaging, 100% paperboard is the preferred packaging option to protect the environment. When you choose our recyclable and sustainable packaging, you build brand trust and loyalty with your customers.

The paperboard used to make all our containers meets SFI standards and is sourced with up to 95% post-consumer content. It is comprised of natural fiber that is easily recyclable and has a high level of biodegradability and compostability.

Even further, we utilize a clean and sustainable production process for our paperboard: no pollutants are added to the air, water or waste stream during the in-house manufacturing processes and all of our paperboard and adhesives are FDA compliant.
