We are Committed to the Environment
Fantastapack is committed to using sustainable materials and manufacturing practices in our quest to deliver beautifully printed packaging to you, our customers. As a company, we proudly purchase materials and supplies from environmentally-conscious sources and work to improve our own impact on the planet.
Corrugated material is made predominantly from trees and is renewably sourced. It is the most recovered packaging material in use today. According to Corrugated.org, 93% is recovered and recycled to make new boxes and other paper products.
Our boxes are made from approximately 30% to 50% recycled material and are 100% recyclable! All of Fantastapack’s corrugated materials are sourced from SFI® Certified suppliers in North America. Whenever possible, we source from local mills with the highest available post-consumer recycled content.
You can help by recycling your corrugated packaging when you’re done with it!
The inks used in our HP presses boast a leading compliance profile. HP HDR inks are UL Greenguard Gold Certified, one of the most stringent chemical emission standards in the world. These inks also meet AgBB Compliance standards, pass the EN 1230-1 ISO Referenced Odor Test, and are Deinkable and Recyclable as certified by PTS Munich.
Our PurePrint Materials Collection uses true water-based inks, which are food-safe, non-toxic, completely free of UV-reactive chemistries, and can be used for primary packaging applications. These inks are fully repulpable and recyclable, as verified by Papiertechnische Stiftung of Germany (PST) — potentially reducing the environmental impact of food packaging production, with no need for extra steps or costly processes.
Our Manufacturing Practices and Plant
Because Fantastapack is powered by digital print, we are able to produce packaging orders in exact quantities. Waste is eliminated by avoiding the production of extra units. Without the need for print plates, the impact on the environment is substantially reduced because the need for many traditional pre-press procedures is eliminated. Obsolete or outdated print plates don’t go to waste either. Additionally, quality is consistent from the first box to the last, meaning that materials are not wasted during machine setup and calibration.
Fantastapack is proud to operate our own manufacturing plant, allowing us to completely control the environment in which your packaging is produced. We warehouse almost all of our packaging materials on the manufacturing floor, eliminating truck transportation and reducing our carbon footprint.
As a manufacturer, we produce and use right-sized shipping boxes to send out our orders, which helps eliminate waste and reduce the amount of void fill and packing material we use inside boxes. Fantastapack also uses paper banding material for its recyclability.
100% of corrugated fall off (waste) in our plant is baled and recycled through the paper mill system.
Every Order Plants a Tree
For every purchase made on Fantastapack.com we donate a portion of each sale to fund the planting of one new tree through One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization on a mission to create a world full of trees! Their activities support global reforestation and help businesses and individuals create a more sustainable future. All trees funded by Fantastapack are planted in North America.
