A Green Product

corrugated-recyclesWhen you select corrugated as your packaging material, you help to reduce the burden on our limited landfill space. Corrugated is 100% recyclable and is biodegradable.  About 78.3% of all corrugated packaging is recycled. (source:  source: AF&PA—www.afandpa.org). But this only tells part of the story.  At Container Service Corp., we take being a green supplier a step further by inviting Bureau Veritas to annually audit our purchasing and manufacturing processes.  We have Chain of Custody certification from both the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Forest Service Council.

Certifications are nice.  They establish credibility and help us verify our claims.  But they are not the whole story when it comes to being a Green company.  Good design matters, too.  We can help you design your packaging in ways that maximize the effectiveness of the package while it minimizes the amount of material used.  Sometimes, you need to decrease the recycled content of the paper in a box in order to increase the strength of the paper, allowing you to reduce the total amount of paper being used.  Our designers know how to factor all of the variables as they design your packaging.  For more information, contact your account manager or email us at info@containerservicecorp.com.
