For consumers, folding cartons offer a wide variety of benefits. Perhaps the most important benefit is the clean and attractive. Paperboard packaging is easy to see and understand on the retail shelf.
Folding cartons also offer a wide variety of easy-to-open and re-close designs.
And, for the growing population of environmentally-conscious consumers, paperboard is a packaging alternative that is easy to recycle.
There is less sorting than plastic packaging requires, and most neighborhoods offer paper/paperboard pickup programs.
Retailers and product manufacturers also experience great benefits from paperboard packaging. On the retail shelf, it can be stacked, stored and viewed effectively. Paperboard is more space-efficient to break down and recycle by the retailer. In addition, the large printable area offered by folding cartons is a key opportunity for communication with the customer, encouraging the consumer purchase decision, which so often happens at that impulse stage.
Most resources from our earth that are used to produce products and their packaging cannot be replaced once they are extracted. But wood fiber used to produce paperboard packaging can be, and is being, replaced.
Through FSC and SFI chain-of-custody certification programs, we are ensuring that 110% of the trees consumed to make certified packages have been replanted. Take a look at further information the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) has available for renewability.
FSC is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide.
SFI Inc. is an independent, nonprofit organization that is solely responsible for maintaining, overseeing and improving the internationally recognized Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program.
Sustainability is defined by the United Nations as the ability "to meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs." Paperboard packaging is certainly a sustainable packaging solution.
