David Van de Water, director of product and market development, Mohawk Fine Papers said, “We receive inquiries daily from customers looking for a more sustainable packaging alternative, and the media is actively covering the subject of green packaging. This is not a trend but rather a need that will continue to grow.”
The initial product launch will be 18-point board. Although larger boxes are typically constructed from heavier board, the majority of packaging production uses 18-point board for luxury items such as cosmetics, bath products, jewellery, gift boxes and CD cases, as well as business collateral such as portfolios and pocket folders.
Mohawk claims the new FSC-certified Renewal Folding Board has the highest PCW content available. Van de Walter concludes, ”As a company with a reputation as a leader in sustainable papers, the time is right for us to introduce Renewal, a folding board that contains the highest PCW content in the industry.”
