Eco-Friendly Packaging

Mankato Packaging has always focused on supplying the most cost effective Eco-Friendly Packaging to our customers. The paperboard products we produce are all 100% recyclable. We take great strides throughout our entire production process to ensure we limit our carbon footprint.

100% Recyclable Paperboard – The primary paperboard product we use is called Clay Coated News Board (CCNB). This paperboard contains 65% pre-consumer content and 35% post-consumer content. Some products we produce will use Solid Bleached Sulfate (SBS). This paperboard contains 100% pre-consumer content. All of the paperboard we use is 100% recyclable.

Environmentally Friendly Inks – All of our inks contain significant vegetable/soy oils to ensure that the paperboard these inks are placed can continue to be 100% recyclable.

Protective Coatings – Aqueous coatings that are utilized are water based and provide an excellent high gloss surface, rub resistance, good adhesion to inks and no yellowing with good resistance to UV light.

Zero Waste Production Facility – We are partnered with a leader in the recycling business to achieve the goal of becoming a zero waste production facility.

We continue to look for new innovative ways to deliver on the most eco-friendly packaging products within the industry.
