Nature is Part of Our Formula

We are committed to sustainability from our very chemistry to our long-term goals.

Technology for a Greener World

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, which means they’re recyclable, repulpable, and biodegradable. And many of our resin-based coatings and laminations are recyclable and can be fed back into the old corrugated container (OCC) waste system. FlexSHIELD, our water-based barrier coating, is fully compostable, recyclable, and repulpable.

Our parent companies were early pioneers in waste recycling and environmental sustainability long before such practices became fashionable or profitable.
