Toronto, ON – September 10, 2023 – Atlantic Packaging proudly celebrates another pivotal moment in its sustainability journey with the recent planting of approximately 3000 trees, underscoring its unwavering dedication to environmental responsibility. This remarkable initiative showcases the company’s commitment to eco-friendly practices and also emphasizes its dedication to the communities it serves, reaffirming its mission to foster a positive global impact.

Atlantic achieves this through innovative practices that prioritize sustainability, including:

  • Exclusively producing 100% recycled liners and mediums.
  • Implementing a comprehensive recycling program for old and discarded boxes, collected in blue bins as old corrugated boxes.
  • Utilizing a meticulous process at Atlantic’s three paper mills, where the collected boxes are transformed back into pulp.
  • Feeding this pulp into the company’s four paper machines to create fresh paper.
  • Shipping the 100% recycled paper to the company’s converting plants for the production of more boxes.

This strategy not only dramatically decreases the need for virgin materials but also conserves natural resources and eliminates waste, highlighting Atlantic’s constant dedication to environmental conservation, which is a critical step toward aligning with circular economy principles.

As part of a holistic approach to corporate responsibility, Atlantic Packaging has expanded its green initiative by giving trees as gifts to employees and banking partners, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to promoting a feeling of community pride. 

In recognition of their outstanding contributions to environmental sustainability, Atlantic Packaging is also the proud recipient of the Atlantic Sustainability Award from Baxter Corporation. The award outlines the direct environmental effect of Baxter’s continued efforts, including the amount of trees rescued, greenhouse gas reductions, water saved, energy saved, and garbage diverted from landfills. 

The company invites others to join them in making a difference and encourages the exploration of their website to learn more about their eco-friendly practices and community initiatives. As they plant the seeds of change, Atlantic Packaging envisions a future where collaborative efforts lead to a greener, more sustainable world for all.
