Today, we use an innovative process that utilizes Bagasse to create a paper like packaging alternative to traditional tree fiber packaging.

Bagasse is the by product of the cane sugar husk that is normally burned or tilled into the ground.

This agriculture process allows us to have a minimal environmental print foot while benefiting from the advancement of the circular economy

SugarPac paperboard is 100% plant based fiber that preforms and acts the same as traditional paper fibers.

When is comes to sustainability,  our product completely composts into rich nutrient soil anywhere from 3- 6 months .

In most cases we are field to packaging to field in less than 12 months -then repeat!

Our packaging alternatives allow company's to now leverage their sustainability commitment as a competitive advantage.

Using our certified tree savings and CO2 measured monthly statements, company's can easily quantify the significant tree savings and CO2 emissions into specific marketing campaigns to drive consumer  awareness
