Good packaging protects products, helps reduce food waste and supports an efficient supply chain, that is to say, a well-thought packaging is safeguarding both the final product and the resources invested in making it.
In Karton we have 40 years of experience in the design and development of environmentally friendly extruded and injection moulded products. We have a wide portfolio that satisfies the “cradle to cradle” model approach: polypropylene layer pads and pallets, as well as reusable boxes and bulk containers like our Box Pallets and Box Mec.
What do all these products have in common? They are durable and robust, they can be used over and over again instead of being landfilled. At the end of their useful life they can be recycled into new products.
The recyclate we collect from our customers through a buy-back programme becomes a cost-efficient raw material for making new products.
Our customers, instead of incurring in disposal costs of the exhausted products, receive an economic value from us. A win-win situation.
The use of polypropylene (PP) ensures the total recyclability at the end of a product’s useful life.
Moreover, the bespoke design we apply to all our products helps our customers to use space more efficiently: they need less warehouse space and fewer pallets to ship goods. This means fewer journeys of trucks, reducing carbon emissions. It is a global positive impact in the whole environmental footprint of customers’ supply chain.
Karton’s commitment to improve its sustainable production has been awarded in 2016 and recently, in 2017 by the Italian Packaging Consortium CONAI.
Recycling and reusing is Karton’s philosophy.
