Buying products that are eco-friendly is increasingly important to our customers as well as their customers. Everyone wants to do their part to reduce their footprint and we are no exception.
At Doran & Ward Packaging, we offer some of the best environmentally focused packaging available. Our number one paper purchased by volume is a 100% Post-Consumer Waste (PCW) stock. Many of our films are recyclable and some are even biodegradable. These options help the end products be environmentally sound once in the market.
But our eco-friendly efforts don't end with our printing and packaging options. As an organization, we are fully committed to making environmentally responsible manufacturing a reality in our operations. In fact, our recycling efforts save over 9,000 trees annually.
From using 100% PCW paper stocks to the 100% recycled board grades and water-based and vegetable-based ink systems to forging partnerships with environmentally friendly suppliers, we are continually striving to find new ways to not only bring Sustainable solutions to our customers but to weave Sustainable practices into our work as well.
We keep close tabs on strides made in Sustainability to find new ways to improve our offerings and the work that we do to lessen our environmental impact and make a difference where we can.
