Green Packaging Revolutionizing Packaging Industry

One of the most exciting developments within the packaging industry in recent times is the push for and commitment to green products.  From plastic bags to paper bags to boxes and beyond, there are ever increasing ways of "greening up" one's packaging.  Morgan Chaney has assumed a leadership position in the continuing evolution of environmentally viable packaging alternatives, and is committed to providing them for our customers. The truly wonderful part for interested businesses is the knowledge that the look and feel of green products doesn't miss a beat in terms of style and performance.  That said, why wouldn't you go green?

Recycled products are continuously changing and improving, offering interested customers an ever-expanding variety of choices.  These products consist of Post Consumer Recycled Material (PCR) and Post-Industrial Recycled Material (PIR).  PCR is any material that was used and discarded by a consumer or business and captured before going into a landfill.  PIR consists of excess scrap or trim material that has been recovered by a factory during and after the manufacturing process.  As you'll learn, other recycled materials may also be present.  But now that you're a content expert, let's learn about the products!

Some of Morgan Chaney's recycled paper bags are made from 100 percent natural fiber recycled paper that contains 60 percent PCR and 30 percent PIR.  The other 10 percent is made up of, believe it or not, banana, coffee, or lemon fibers.  Recycled and biodegradable plastic bags are also available with different contents of PCR and PIR, usually up to 30 percent.  And in a tribute to the continued evolution of these products, they now feature an additive that makes plastic bags biodegradable, compostable and recyclable.  And unlike with previous additives, these bags will not experience premature degradation while being stored for use.  Custom printing using soy and water based inks is available. 

No bananas or coffee in our recycled boxes, just boxes with up to 100 percent recycled paperboard content broken down to contain 75-80 percent PCR and 20-25 percent PIR.  Custom printing for boxes is available using water based inks and varnishes.  Morgan Chaney is also proud to offer recycled tissue paper that can be printed in as little as 10 reams using soy inks, as well as stock or custom printed ribbon and paper napkins.
