Cartons are made from Renewable materials
We can help preserve resources for future generations by choosing packaging made from renewable materials.
- More than 70% of a carton is paper made from trees, a renewable resource.
- The majority of trees used to make cartons come from U.S. forests where responsible forest practices are used and average growth exceeds use.
- The paper in cartons is made using more than 50% bioenergy, a renewable energy that comes from combustion of wood by-products.
What’s responsible forestry?
Responsible forestry promotes new forest growth, which helps diminish greenhouse gases. Annually in the U.S., responsible forest management programs offset about 11% of industrial greenhouse gas emissions—the equivalent of removing almost 135 million passenger vehicles from the nation’s highways.
