Fibre-based packaging solutions provider Evergreen Packaging has introduced Fully Renewable carton, which is part of its sugar cane-based polyethylene Renewable Plus Carton range.
The new Renewable Plus Cartons are developed under the company’s sustainable packaging development strategy.
Evergreen Packaging North American packaging vice-president DeWitt Clark said: “Our new Renewable Plus Carton reflects our promise to continually innovate and create unique renewable packaging solutions that serve both customers and consumers.
“Customers can offer fully renewable carton options, which leverage our industry-leading expertise in barrier extrusion technology.”
The recyclable Renewable Plus Carton is available in all sizes of the FreshHouse line of cartons, which are made with renewable material and paper procured from trees following responsible management practices.
The company also noted that more than 50% of the energy used in the manufacturing process is renewable energy source biomass.
Evergreen Packaging sustainability director Derric Brown said: “Using renewable materials means that today’s needs for protective packaging can be met, and the resources can be replenished to meet the needs of the future.”
Evergreen Packaging specialises in manufacturing fibre-based packaging products in accordance with the sustainability preferences of consumers.
Earlier this year, the company launched the Sentinel lines of paper, paperboard and ice cream board, which use Braskem sugar cane-based polyethylene as a raw material.
The Sentinel products can be used for food packaging applications with varying shelf life requirements.
