What is PCR Paper Packaging?

70% Mixed Content and 100% PCR CCNB/CCKB, 98% and 100% recycled content corrugated.

Understanding PCR Paper

PCR Paper is a sustainable alternative to traditional packaging materials. It's made from recycled content, reducing environmental impact by reintroducing waste into the production cycle.

Composition of PCR Paper

PCR Paper is made up of 70% Mixed Content and 100% PCR CCNB/CCKB. This blend contains up to 98% recycled materials in its corrugated components. This helps to minimize waste and makes PCR Paper a sustainable packaging solution that conserves valuable resources.

Advantages of PCR Paper

PCR Paper is eco-friendly and made from recycled materials, reducing the need for new resources, conserving energy, and minimizing carbon emissions. It is also biodegradable and has minimal environmental impact at the end of its lifecycle. Despite being environmentally friendly, PCR Paper is durable and strong, just like traditional packaging materials.

Sustainability Impact

PCR Paper has a big sustainability impact. It diverts waste from landfills, reduces the use of new materials, and is biodegradable, making it an eco-friendly solution for packaging needs.
