Beautiful Eco-friendly Packaging

 Elevate Packaging (a division of Distant Village, Inc) is proudly offering folding carton paper boxes made from 100% PCW (Post-Consumer Waste). The boxes are made from entirely recycled paper from waste collected from discarded papers from everyday use in offices and households. The most impressive aspect is the quality and beauty of the packaging it creates! This paper is strong, bright, and has impressive shelf appeal with outstanding full-color print quality and enhanced customizable features including embossing, debossing, and die cuts. Sustainable brand owners may now create amazingly beautiful packaging which is eco-friendly, 100% recycled and recyclable. (Also FSC certified!)

Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer – perhaps the perfect sustainable packaging product

Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer

We have had the opportunity to bring many green products to market but one of my favorites is our Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer because it is so unique.

What makes the GGRBS such a green and sustainable product? Here are a few reasons:
