Sustainable Packaging: Tree-Free Options

Sustainability is at the forefront of consumers’ and regulators’ minds. If you’re not discussing measures to improve your brand’s commitment to it, you’re falling behind.

Innovative Board Options

Sustainability is at the forefront of consumers’ and regulators’ minds. If you’re not discussing measures to improve your brand’s commitment to it, you’re falling behind.

The environmental movement is particularly important to initiatives like clean beauty in the HBA market and food sustainability, but it’s not unique to any one industry. Consumers are responding as well: Research suggests that nearly 74% percent are willing to pay more for products in sustainable packaging, and 60% say they are less likely to buy products in environmentally harmful packaging. 

Luckily, manufacturers have developed eco-responsible materials without sacrificing quality. 

Oliver is proud to offer innovative board options to help you achieve your sustainable packaging goals. 

Unilustre®: 100% Recyclable Metallized Paperboard

Unilustre® (from Unifoil) is a repulpable, film- and plastic-free, metallized substrate that performs like paper. The material is excellent for embossing/debossing. With no plasticizers, it also retains tamper-evident and glueability qualities similar to traditional paperboard while having excellent scoring.

Unilustre® is: 

  • Film- and plastic-free
  • 100% water-based
  • Certified recyclable
  • Cost-competitive compared to similar decorative options

Perfect for: Folding cartons, cosmetics, personal care, spirits, retail, and signage
