What is PlantCarton™?
Our cartons are made with over 75% paper — plant fiber from trees. We offer solutions made with up to 97% renewable materials when a barrier coating produced from sugarcane is used. Evergreen Packaging’s barrier structures are custom designed, including thin layers of plastic, which provide oxygen and moisture protection to meet your extended shelf life product needs. Derived from trees, PlantCarton™ packaging offers a sustainable, responsibly-sourced competitive edge for environmentally-conscious businesses.
GOOD FOR OUR PLANET
Since the package comes from a renewable resource, the source material can be replenished. Our cartons are made with over 75% paper – plant fiber from trees. We offer solutions made with up to 97% renewable materials when a barrier coating produced from sugarcane is used.
Fiber in our cartons comes from forests where responsible forestry practices are used. Certifications from three independent parties and chain-of-custody product offerings provide our customers with supply chain assurance. This means reduced risk for your business related to impact on soils, water quality, wildlife, threatened and endangered species, special areas, social rights and biodiversity.
SUPPORT FUTURE OF THE FORESTS
Continued diligence to protect our forests is important. The environmental benefits of trees and forests are well known. The US Forest Service data show there is more forestland today than there was one hundred years ago.
Cartons are widely recyclable. The ongoing value of carton packaging doesn’t stop with first use. Recycled cartons are made into everyday products such as paper and stationery, tissue and household papers, and building materials.
GOOD FOR YOUR PRODUCT
Evergreen PlantCarton™ packages are a natural fit for clean label products. Clean label is already a trend. Consumers are demanding products with authenticity—real food with simple ingredients that are natural, familiar and recognizable. Think of packaging materials as an extension of your product’s ingredient list.
GOOD FOR BUSINESS
Cartons ship flat to the filler, so they can contribute to lower warehousing and transportation costs, and even reduced vehicular emissions. Evergreen’s cartons can help you support a smaller carbon footprint on the planet.
