Why Fiber?

Sustainable

Paper's New Purpose

Recycled newspaper becomes a manufacturing marvel

Fiber, molded pulp solutions are a sustainable marvel in manufacturing – one that your business should consider as our economic and environmental cultures dramatically evolve. Molded pulp is a material typically made from recycled paperboard and/or newsprint and is a sustainable alternative to polystyrene (EPS), vacuum-formed PET and PVC and foams.

Moreover, it is “often considered a sustainable material” as defined by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, since it is produced from recycled materials and can be recycled again after its useful life-cycle ends. Molded pulp is an eco-friendly solution with impactful benefits to your environmental initiatives.

  1. There’s no recycling required – it will harmlessly break down in the soil in less than a year.
  2. It’s great for the environment – no more clogging up landfills or harming wildlife in the ocean.
  3. It’s truly sustainable – it’s manufactured in a closed-loop, water recycling facility to eliminate waste and save on energy emissions.

There are few limitations when it comes to molded pulp and how it can be effectively shaped, sized and utilized in manufacturing and consumer applications. Molded pulp is a sustainable alternative you should consider to not only satisfy consumer demands, but also to do your part to help decrease waste in landfills and oceans.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.”

At HC, we believe innovation drives sustainability. Explore all of our molded pulp solutions and see for yourself.
