We believe in behaving responsibly and being good stewards of the valuable resources that benefit people, drive the economy and belong to everyone. Stewardship is about keeping waste out of landfills and toxins out of the air; using only what we need as efficiently as we can. We apply that principal to every point in the closed-loop journey – from day-to-day operations to strategic direction setting.

EnviroLife™ fiber has zero fluorescence, a growing demand in the food packaging industry.

EnviroLife™ is a 100% post-consumer recycled fiber manufactured in North America and is FDA compliant for use in direct food contact packaging at 100% inclusion.


Usage supported by a No Objection Letter (NOL) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stating the fiber “is of a purity suitable for food-contact use.”
