Why Paperboard?

Retailers and product manufacturers alike are increasingly turning to paperboard and folding cartons for their product packaging solutions. The multitude of benefits that paperboard offers across its lifecycle – from manufacturing to retailing to consumption and recycling – is becoming more clear to more people everyday.

A Recent Independent study by paperimpact found that 93 percent of consumers agree that paper-based packaging and labels are more environmentally friendly than alternative substrates. Other reasons for paper preference included higher level of convenience, more pleasant to handle and touch, and the way it makes products more attractive. Paper packaging is also perceived as adding status to a brand. When asked which product they would buy if they saw the same product packaged in both paper and plastic, 87 percent of consumers surveyed said they would choose the one packaged in paper.

Another study, conducted by the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI) in April 2010, found that U.S. consumers rated paper and glass packaging as best for the environment, while 61 percent of respondents believe plastic bottles or containers are the biggest source of environmental pollution.

Retailers and product manufacturers also experience great benefits from paperboard packaging. On the retail shelf, it can be stacked, stored and viewed effectively. Paperboard is more space-efficient to break down and recycle by the retailer. In addition, the large printable area offered by folding cartons is a key opportunity for communication with the customer, encouraging the consumer purchase decision, which so often happens at that impulse stage.

Paperboard begins and ends its life in ways that are friendly to the environment. Trees grown for use as paper are re-planted. The forsterites that replant this trees are being managed responsibly for the greatest environmental benefits. Furthermore, the forest products industry generates more renewable energy than any other industry and a significant percentage of the water used in paper manufacturing is returned to the environment after treatment. The remaining water is in the paperboard produced and in the process evaporation.

The Benefits of Using Paperboard

Paperboard packaging has a long list of customer benefits including versatility, stackability, billboard effect and retailer and consumer appeal. It also helps to meet retailer guidelines for life cycle accountability. You’ll be able to add up benefits from each of the “7Rs” (Remove, Reduce, Reuse, Renew, Recycle, Revenue, Read), as well as the R of Regeneration. Using paperboard packaging helps give landowners the incentive to regenerate forestlands and manage them in an environmentally responsible manner.

  • RECYCLABLE – Paperboard packaging has better recycling statistics than almost any other packaging material. Check out the enlightening research on the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) website.
  • RENEWABLE – Most resources from our earth that are used to produce products and their packaging cannot be replaced once they are extracted. But wood fiber used to produce paperboard packaging can be, and is being, replaced. Through FSC and SFI chain-of-custody certification programs, we are ensuring that 110% of the trees consumed to make certified packages have been replanted. Take a look at further information the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) has available for renewability.
  • SUSTAINABLE – Sustainability is defined by the United Nations as the ability “to meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” Paperboard packaging is certainly a sustainable packaging solution.
