Eco-Friendly Recycled Green Boxes

Imperial is an environmentally conscious custom paper box manufacturer which offers various eco-friendly Green options for your chipboard boxes. We use the most eco-friendly paper available, we use soy-based ink, we offer water-based aqueous coatings, we use 100% wind power, and we have a large recycling program.

Eco-Friendly Paper / Recycled Paper

Since Imperial's inception, the company has offered cost-effective and environmentally friendly recycled paper boxes. More than 50% of our products are made from recycled materials. These recycled materials primarily consist of post-consumer recycled paper, which is material discarded after consumer use that has been separated from solid waste to be recycled into new paper. Recycled paperboard is one of the best options for an environmentally friendly minded business or organization to use. In addition, all of our paperboard is 100% recyclable.

In conjunction with our philosophy of offering eco-friendly recycled green boxes for customers, Imperial is FSC-certified. Customers can be assured that FSC-certified paper purchased by Imperial is traceable to responsibly managed forests, and that there are documented controls in place to make sure that the integrity of the environment is upheld.

Soy-Based Ink

Imperial is proud to use soy-based ink which is biodegradable and therefore more environmentally friendly than traditional petroleum-based ink.

Water-Based Aqueous Coatings

Imperial offers aqueous coatings, which are water-based, and therefore an excellent eco-friendly alternative to traditional varnishes.

Wind Power

In June 2014, Imperial began purchasing renewable energy credits (REC’s) in order to purchase 100% of our electricity through wind power. As a result, Imperial’s customers can print the logo “Made with Wind Power” on their packaging.

Imperial’s purchase of renewable energy helps avoid up to 167,829 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from being emitted into the atmosphere. This commitment has a similar impact as 1,952 tree seedlings grown for 10 years or avoiding the carbon emissions from consuming 8,534 gallons of gasoline.

Recycling Program

We recycle everything we can. This includes:

  • Paperboard waste generated during the printing process as well as office paper
  • Wood products, such as pallets and off-cuts
  • Metal, including all aluminum plating materials and metal straps
  • Liquid wastes such as oil

Unlike many other custom folding carton manufacturers, we separate our scrap paper into several different categories. This eco-friendly practice greatly reduces natural resources used in milling virgin paper. The paper waste we recycle saves thousands of trees each year.

In addition, our production area has abundant natural sunlight, thereby reducing the need for electricity.
