As the climate crisis continues, consumers around the world are evaluating their use of everyday items—and paper products are no exception. There is a growing demand for brands to take steps toward sustainability and leveraging sustainable recycled fiber rather than virgin pulp in paper products is one place to start.
Amidst growing concerns and conversations around the environmental issues facing our society, businesses need innovative sustainability solutions that go beyond traditional efforts. But how do we get there? And what do businesses need to keep in mind when aiming to shift their supply chain from linear to circular?
Sustana Fiber, specializing in the manufacturing of recycled fiber from recovered paper materials, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Société VIA, a company that specializes in the sorting and recovery of recycled materials. Recovered multi-layer food and beverage containers are then recycled locally through the Sustana Fiber initiative. A first for a partnership of this type!
Around the world, consumers are continuing to understand the importance of their everyday consumption. Individuals, organizations, and governments are all taking action to combat the climate crisis.
As more and more consumers are becoming concerned about the environment, many of today’s leading brands are increasingly offering customers new fiber-based sustainable packaging options.
Sustana Fiber is pleased to announce that it has joined companies from around the world in the creation of a new Consortium, CELAB: Toward a Circular Economy for Labels. CELAB – Circular Economy for Labels – is an industry initiative, founded by companies in the self-adhesive label industry to create greater circularity for its products by enhancing and promoting matrix and release liner recycling around the world.
This edition of Sustana Fiber’s ‘Conversations with Green Champions’ is with long-time customer Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. which recently introduced two sustainable premium packaging products: Envi PC 100 Performance Board with 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled fiber, and Hemp Envi™ Performance Board with 30% hemp fiber and 70% PCW.
According to the UN-Water Policy Brief on Climate Change and Water, climate change increases unpredictability in the water cycle, inducing extreme weather events, – such as droughts and wildfires – reducing the certainty of water availability and negatively impacting water quality while putting the biodiversity and sustainable development of our planet at great risk.
During this critical time of the COVID-19 pandemic, while we live, work and care about family and friends in new conditions, humanity is prompted to recognize how it must work together to reduce its collective impact.
Sustana Fiber reaches safety achievement for operating one year without a recordable incident.
