Is Your Packaging Still Green?

ThinkingThe question has been asked a few times recently, making us realize that perhaps we need to periodically remind others (primarily prospective customers and vendors) that we are still very much in the green packaging business. Yes, we have become very focused on custom printing and branding to help companies enhance their customer’s experience, but never at the expense of using less than environmentally friendly packaging. Most of our customers understand and appreciate that we can help them accomplish both their sustainability and branding objectives. The best of both worlds!

Eco Friendly and Green Branded Packaging Solutions

Globe Guard® RSC style shipping boxes – even though we are ending our stock box program, we can still make 100% recycled content and 100% recyclable corrugated boxes in a low 500 minimum for plain/unprinted and 1,000 minimum for custom printed.

Globe Guard® Die Cut Mailers – Customer applications vary greatly as do corrugated board construction but most of our die cut mailer boxes are at least 60% recycled content, and most are still 100% recycled content or better. Like our RSC boxes above, ALL are 100% recyclable, repulpable, biodegradable, and even compostable. In addition, ALL of our RSC and die cut mailer boxes are always printed with eco-friendly, water based inks for the best print results and minimal negative environmental impact.

Globe Guard® Unpadded, Paper Mailer Envelopes – a customer favorite for years, these mailers are ideal for shipping soft goods and clothing. They are also 100% recycled content, 100% recyclable, and can be custom printed in a very low, one case minimum.

Globe Guard® Water Activated Adhesive, Reinforced Paper Tape – acknowledged as the greenest and best performing box sealing option, this product can be custom printed in a six case minimum, making it a great branding option for customers who utilize a wide range and variety of different box sizes. WAT fuses to the boxes it is applied to, making it easy to recycle and repulp.

These are just a few of the green products we feature as stock items on our green packaging store and are also available as custom size and custom print products through our division and web site.
