Earth Friendly, Green Packaging
For many retailers, sustainability has become a core corporate value. The big question on many eco friendly minds is, ‘how do I go green?’
That’s why every day more customers look to SouthPack for sustainable packaging solutions. Our green packaging services combine cost-effective solutions with innovative ideas. We implement sustainable production practices like biodegradable plastics, recycled corrugated materials and soy based inks, to name a few.
Bioplastics like PLA, which are made from corn and starches, can be surprisingly cost competitive and easily thermoformed. Additionally, our sustainable packaging performs similar to petroleum-based plastics in many applications. Bioplastics offer high clarity and resist grease and oils very well. Furthermore, prevent flavors and odors from attaching to food products, carry a lower density that PET and decomposes quickly and easily in landfills.
SouthPack’s commitment to the environment goes beyond production, all the way to the office and shop floor. That’s because we take sustainability very seriously. Since our inception, we have implemented many earth friendly initiatives, such as plant-wide recycling for all corrugated material and non-contaminated plastic waste; all unused wooden pallets are broken down and rebuilt or the wood is given away to area wood workers. Even scrapped metal parts and machines are recycled. As a green company, we strive to operate in the most efficient and responsible manner possible, and look for new ways to improve this policy every day.
