Stanpac chooses paper for many of our ice cream packaging products. Paper is a renewable resource that can also be recycled in areas where programs exist. A major raw material in our paperboard is sawdust sourced from the lumber industry. Using this by-product enhances the sustainability of our products.
All of our paperboard comes from companies that are SFI certified (Sustainable Forestry Initiative). The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® program promotes sustainable forest management. By supporting the program, Stanpac is helping to strengthen forest practices in North America and promote responsible sourcing globally.
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® is a comprehensive, independent certification program that works with environmental, social and industry partners to improve forest practices in North America and fiber sourcing worldwide. The Initiative is based on 14 core principles that promote sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and Forests with Exceptional Conservation Value.
