At JBM Packaging, every day is Earth Day. We’re on a mission to help our customers evolve to plastic-free sustainable packaging alternatives. Packaging affects the entire supply chain – from the material producer, to the brand owner and retailer, to waste and recycling organizations. And back again.
Our environmental commitment is embedded in our Core Values – Passion for a Better World. We create products with their “death” in mind. Understanding the overall environmental impact of the products we manufacture helps drive our Passion for a Better World. We consider the life (how it is created and used) and death (how it affects the environment thereafter) of our packaging products. We strive to manufacture products from renewable, paper-based substrates because we keep the death of our products in mind. Incremental steps lead to significant improvements.
We apply our innovation mindset to the environment. We can help you shift to paper-based packaging to keep the environment free from harmful waste. We evaluate multiple design options to solve the challenge of transitioning from plastic to paper packaging.
Sustainable packaging requires rethinking package design. We build in sustainability from the very beginning of our packaging development cycle with product design and raw materials sourcing. We innovate towards material and format designs for improved recyclability, without sacrificing functionality. Our Innovation Team custom designs solutions to reduce packaging materials and sizes and sources environmentally appropriate papers, biodegradable window sheets, and recyclable water-based and vegetable oil-based inks. Our team works with you to package your products in an effort to best balance sustainability with the needs of functionality, branding, or logistics. We help design and produce right-sized sustainable packaging to reduce waste, improve recycling opportunities, and increase efficiency.
We fully encourage recycling programs. Our paper-based products are 100% recyclable and fully biodegradable. From translucent glassine to HydrobloxTM water-resistant papers. Glassine envelopes and bags are sustainable packaging alternatives to plastics, films, and foils. Free from coatings or dyes. The smooth glossy appearance is the result of the supercalendaring papermaking process, not waxes or coatings. Our paper suppliers are FSC® and/or SFI® certified mills and use the elemental chlorine free (ECF) manufacturing process.
