Commitment to Sustainable Packaging
We at Jay Packaging Group are doing everything we can to support an eco-friendly future. We approach every project with the goal of making it as recyclable as possible which is why we always try to utilize 100% compostable or recyclable paperboard and plastic. We are constantly working with our customers to reduce their carbon footprint as it relates to packaging.
Jay Packaging Group utilizes an extensive amount (60% of tonnage) of recycled paperboard in our manufacturing process and also provides the option of bleached Kraft paperboard. Additional post industrial waste recovery includes plastics, metals, inks, corrugated and office paper.
Our rigid films utilize APET, RPET, PETG and PVC materials. Additionally, we offer TerraPET® and SmartCycle®. TerraPET® is a film produced from sugar-cane derived ethylene that has a 30% renewable content. SmartCycle® is a blend of PET and 50% post-consumer RPET made from soda bottles.
Good Forestry Practices
Jay Packaging Group is chain of custody certified to the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) chain of custody standards. Only chain of custody certified companies are authorized to use the FSC and SFI logos. This means that whether your project specifies FSC® or SFI certified paperboard, recycled or recyclable paperboard, you can be sure you are making an environmentally responsible choice.
We have extensive experience using zero gauge foil as an alternative to conventional foil, film lamination as well as hot stamping. Zero gauge products are biodegradable, compostable, recyclable and repulpable.
