Sustainable Packaging Solutions Using Nature’s Resources Wisely

Dura-Fibre is committed to protecting the future of the earth’s natural resources. Our sustainable packaging solutions are not only made from recycled materials, they are also completely recyclable. Paper and paperboard products offer durability unmatched by cardboard and are more ecologically friendly than plastic.

Paperboard vs. Plastic: An Eco-friendly Alternative

Containers and packaging make up the largest category of landfilled plastic. In fact, just 13 percent of plastic containers and packaging are recycled, contributing to 10 million tons of annual landfill waste. Worst of all, plastic waste can take hundreds of years to biodegrade. And, that’s when it’s properly managed. When mismanaged, plastic waste can end up in our waterways and oceans where it harms marine life.

Dura-Fibre is committed to providing responsible packaging by:

  • Using recycled materials to produce our paperboard, based on customer preferences and specifications
  • Utilizing responsible processes and materials in our paperboard packaging
  • Recycling our manufacturing waste
  • Producing a product that’s 100% recyclable
