Protecting and preserving the environment through sustainable manufacturing practices is the way Burrows Packaging does business. Burrows’ long-standing focus on sustainability began in 1919 with the use of recycled fiber as part of its paper making. Today, Burrows:
- Continues to make use of recycled materials
- Uses renewable resources
- Manufactures light weight specialty paper wraps and F-Lite® specialty packaging products with reduced basis weights that are recognized in the quick serve restaurant industry as helping to significantly reduce the amount of solid waste that goes to landfills
- Uses only water-based inks
- Produces certified compostable products to replace foam clamshells for food packaging
Reducing energy consumption is another important focus for Burrows Packaging.
At Burrows, a corporate goal is to produce as much renewable energy as is consumed from traditional energy resources. Solar projects have been implemented and Burrows remains interested in investigating initiatives to generate additional renewable energy.
Burrows will meet its goal and continue to make a difference.
