Frequently asked questions

Are FSC® and other certifications available on all your products?

All our eco-friendly packaging can be certified for FSC® and compostable upon request. Please note that the FSC® and compostable certification only applies to paper/cardboard-based materials. Our folding cartons, corrugated, rigid, paper bags, and compostable mailers are some of the packaging that can be made from materials certified by FSC®. To be sure if your packaging can be certified, contact our product specialists for further assistance

 

What does FSC® stand for?

The Forest Stewardship Council is a nonprofit organization that creates and upholds responsible forest management principles. With many different countries part of the council, the goal is to guarantee responsibly produced wood and paper materials for consumers. Forest management encompasses water quality, forest cover, protecting old forest lands, and preventing hazardous chemicals from being used. Forest management also considers the wildlife and plants in the area and takes measures for protection to ensure your packaging solutions are responsibly sourced and produced.

 

Can packaging still be considered eco-friendly with additional finishes such as foil stamping?

Great question! Additional finishes, such as foil stamping, can lower the overall sustainability of your packaging as it could contain toxic chemicals when applying the finish. Generally speaking, your packaging is still entirely eco-friendly as it can still be recycled; however, to maximize sustainability, we advise sticking with FSC® materials as well as minimizing finishes that can be damaging to the environment.

 

I need eco-friendly custom packaging for my business. Will it be enough to keep my products safe?

Absolutely! Opting for eco-friendly packaging doesn't mean you have to compromise strength. With many years of innovation in sustainable packaging, there are now better packaging options for brands to choose from that are on par with regular packaging.
