What is Tree-Free™ Packaging?
Instead of cutting down trees to make the packaging board, we use alternative rapidly renewable resources including sugarcane fiber (bagasse). Bagasse is the waste product of sugarcane processing after the sugar has been extracted and the stalk is juiced. Bagasse can be harvested every 9-12 months and is traditionally burned. Instead of burning bagasse, we pulp it into Tree-Free™ paper and board!
We have been in the packaging industry for more than 40 years. Sustainability has always been a priority for us. Today, we are committed to making our company operations cleaner and greener to preserve the beauty of the world around us.
Our mission is to empower brands with innovative, sustainable, and custom-tailored packaging solutions designed to optimize connections with maximum impact and returns.
