Sustainability

Corrugated is the renewably sourced, recyclable, responsible choice

The foundation for Akers Packaging Service Group’s sustainability efforts lies in our use and manufacturing of corrugated, which is a sustainably sourced, renewably-resourced material, made from certified fiber sourcing programs, and it is the “most recovered packaging material in use today.” Corrugated also has the benefit of being designed with reusability in mind, so corrugated sees a longer product lifecycle, and is still able to be recycled into a new life as new material, avoiding unnecessary additions to landfills, reducing overall waste.

Akers goes the extra mile with its sustainable efforts by manufacturing our own corrugated sheets and boxes, reducing additional shipping and processing steps before the corrugate is recycled and recovered.

GREEN MATERIALS AND GREEN SOLUTIONS
MEAN MORE GREEN FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Beyond the packaging itself, Akers Packaging Service Group promotes a greater sustainability effort by tailoring packaging solutions to fit each customer’s entire packaging and shipping process. Our design and shipping teams create a custom shipping solution for each of our customers that protects the product better, uses less materials for manufacturing, and improves load distribution during shipping. This shipping process that reduces inventory costs, shipping costs, and production costs for our customers.
