Sonoco Introduces Lightweight Recyclable Packaging for Heavyweight Products
FiberMax Bulk Box packaging is designed to help companies with products weighing thousands of pounds protect their items, maximize transportation efficiency, reduce storage space, increase stacking strength and make it easy for their customers to recycle the packaging at the end of its useful life. Similarly, EnviroSense FiberMax Master Roll packaging helps manufacturers of equally heavy, high-value materials in roll form such as films, foils and laminates avoid damage, reduce costs, improve storage utilization and simplify recycling after use.
Both EnviroSense FiberMax packaging solutions are 100% recyclable and provide the strength needed to hold thousands of pounds. Users of the FiberMax Bulk Box will find the remarkably strong package costs about half as much as similarly sized wooden crates. Likewise, FiberMax Master Roll packaging can be as much as 25% more cost effective and more than 50% lighter when compared to wooden crate alternatives.
“We believe we have a responsibility to develop more sustainable packaging to help protect and preserve our planet for future generations,” said
FiberMax Bulk Box and FiberMax Master Roll packaging represent the latest additions to Sonoco’s expanding assortment of more sustainable packaging options. Designed with tomorrow in mind, the EnviroSense portfolio encompasses a range of packaging materials and structures, from 100% recyclable paperboard cans and mono-material flexible pouches to rigid plastic packaging containing post-consumer recycled content and innovative packaging made from agricultural fibers such as sugarcane.
