PATENTED TOOLS HELP US IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
At Menasha Packaging, we take sustainability very seriously. We care about the world we're leaving our children and grandchildren. We do not believe that just reducing materials is enough to qualify as good stewards of the environment. Truly working toward optimum sustainability requires a careful understanding of raw materials, processes, and impact metrics, and how they all combine and transform into products that reduce their impact on our planet.
Our Folding Carton Group prints with inks made of 61 percent soy and vegetable-based byproducts. Menasha Packaging also meets fiber sourcing standards through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Inc.® (SFI) and the Folding Carton Group is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). They certify forests and provide chain-of-custody (COC) certifications.
Menasha Packaging is setting industry standards with our Environmental Sustainability Calculator (patent pending). This unique tool calculates item level environmental impact, using scorecard metrics, to compare current packaging with future designs. The ES Calculator provides the most detailed and comprehensive information available to help us and our customers create and validate environmentally sustainable solutions.
