Sustainable Packaging

Environmentally Conscious Packaging Is Always an Option

Sustainable packaging is a cost effective and easy strategy to decrease a company’s carbon footprint. For approximately the same cost, packaging can easily be made more eco-friendly by:

  • Reducing virgin material content in favor of post-consumer resins (PCR)
  • Reducing gram weight to decrease fuel/energy consumption and material waste
  • Using packaging/palletizing designs that maximize the number of containers per shipment

The E-Tainer™ Line: An Example of Sustainability

The different E-Tainer products blend design with lightweight options, hybrid resins and corrugated mixes to create a more ecologically smart offering. And the best part: The costs are comparable to existing types of packaging.

The E-Tainer Tighthead features a core of PCR surrounded by virgin resin.
