Innovate

for a sustainable future

Our Approach

 

We believe that the circular economy is the future of our society. To ensure packaging end-of-life exit friendliness, we relentlessly innovate material compositions and manufacturing processes throughout the product life cycles. 

 

Our Solutions

 

We carefully develop our proprietary material composites and manufacturing processes. The solutions we provide are results of optimizing look, function, quality and cost while achieving the ultimate goal of zero waste.

 

Our Services

We design and implement fiber-based packaging solutions for industrial and consumer products.  Our services range from free initial consultation to customized turn-key solutions 

 

How serious is the plastic pollution?

FACT #1    8.3 BILLION Metric Tons (9.1 BILLION US Tons) of plastic has been produced since plastic was introduced in the 1950s. The amount of plastic produced in a year is roughly the same as the entire weight of humanity. 

FACT #2    Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated).

FACT #3    91% of plastic waste isn’t recycled. And since most plastics don’t biodegrade in any meaningful sense, all that plastic waste could exist for hundreds or even thousands of years.

FACT #4    500 MILLION plastic straws are used EVERY DAY in America. That’s enough to circle the Earth twice.

FACT #5    Nearly TWO MILLION single-use plastic bags are distributed worldwide every minute.

FACT #6    100 BILLION plastic bags are used by Americans every year. Tied together, they would reach around the Earth’s equator 773 times!

FACT #7    ONE MILLION plastic bottles are bought EVERY MINUTE around the world — and that number will top half a TRILLION by 2021. Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled.

FACT #8    8 MILLION METRIC TONS of plastic winds up in our oceans each year. That’s enough trash to cover every foot of coastline around the world with five full trash bags of plastic…compounding every year. 

FACT #9    There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way.

FACT #10    If plastic production isn’t curbed, plastic pollution will outweigh fish pound for pound by 2050.

Why

Fiber-based Packaging?

  • Half of the 300 million tons of plastic produced each year is used only once.
  • More than 40 percent of plastic is used to create packaging, including the hundreds of billions of industrial and consumer plastic bags used around the globe. 
  • Recyclable plastics ≠ plastics wastes are recycled.  91% of plastic waste is not recycled.
  • The fiber-based products are more recyclable, renewable, and biodegradable. The recycling rate is the highest among all solid wastes.   2/3 of fiber-based wastes are recycled.  It takes 2-5 months for paper products to break down even if left in the environment, comparing to 500-1000 years or even longer for plastics.
