Green by nature
Cascades Sonoco places a top priority on recycling and reclamation to benefit the customers we serve, the communities in which we live and work, and the planet.
Many of our coatings and lamination solutions are an eco-friendly alternative to wax coatings, being recyclable, repulpable, and biodegradable. Many of our resin-based coatings and laminations are recyclable and can be fed back into the old corrugated container (OCC) waste system.
Our parent companies were both early pioneers in waste recycling and environmental sustainability long before such practices became fashionable or profitable.
