Sustana Fiber, a leading manufacturer of premium, sustainable recycled fiber has been awarded 2021 Sustainable Business Product of the Year for EnviroLife® by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council. The company’s premium product, EnviroLife® is a 100% sustainable recycled fiber manufactured in DePere, WI compliant with FDA standards for use in a wide variety of foodservice packagings, such as paper cups, sandwich wraps, bags, to-go containers, and paperboard packaging.
The Sustainable Business Awards presented by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council recognize businesses and individuals who prioritize sustainability and are making strides towards impactful change in Wisconsin. The winners of these awards demonstrate leadership, initiative, innovation, and are making measurable improvements and positive impacts.
At Sustana Fiber, we believe in responsible manufacturing and being good stewards of the valuable resources that benefit people, drive the economy and belong to everyone. Stewardship is about keeping materials out of landfills and toxins out of the air; using only what we need as efficiently as we can. We apply that principle to every point in the sustainability journey.
“We are honored to receive this award and proud of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing and business practices. As demand for sustainability continues to shape our industry, brands and consumers are looking for supply chain partners that offer sustainable products and solutions,” said Renée Yardley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “When businesses work together to provide sustainable recycled paper products, brand’s sustainability goals are achieved, driving sustainability to consumers.”
The circular economy is built on the principle that the life cycle of materials and resources that have already served a purpose for end users can be preserved and extended. When we transform recycled materials into premium recycled fiber, we save millions of pounds of material that would have been landfilled and extend the fiber’s useful life. This process reduces energy and therefore greenhouse gas emissions, helping to mitigate the climate crisis.
