BENEFITS OF CORRUGATED

Corrugated's most basic ingredient is wood, a renewable resource, and with today's forestry industry committed to sustainability the United States is growing more wood in our forests than is harvested. In fact, the amount of standing timber has increased by 10 million acres since 1910.(www.fs.fed.us) The population has more than trippled in the same timeframe. (National Report on Sustainable Forests 2010 and US Forest Resource Facts and Historical Trends)

Even more important to you as a customer of Tilsner Carton Company is the fact that we use corrugated that is manufactured from 100% recycled fiber. (A single box can be recycled as many as eight times.) And, one of the mills that produces our board utilizes steam from a power plant next door giving it an environmentally favorable carbon footprint.

In addition, our inks are water based and can be recycled. Our adhesives are environmentally responsible. And we recycle 100% of our trim/scrap waste utilizing our baler. This adds up to 100,000 pounds per month.

Not only is corrugated sustainable, it is a preferred packaging material because it is:

  • Durable
  • Versatile
  • Light Weight
  • Customizable
  • Protective

Corrugated is also ideal because it can support a wide range of printing options:

  • Flexo
  • Litho
  • Digital
  • Screen Printing

Corrugated also has the benefit of being a cost effective way to package and display products. Then when it is all said and done, 91 percent of all corrugated is recovered for recycling! (American Forest and Paper Association, AF&PA)

Tilsner Carton Company is proud to be part of an industry that is environmentally responsible.
