At Sonoco, we recognize the critical importance of developing sustainable packaging solutions that will protect and preserve our planet for future generations. We also recognize holistic solutions of any kind that require genuine curiosity, a focused thought and an exploration of new ideas, materials and processes that can help answer the challenge before us.

Our EnviroSense portfolio includes cans made from 100-percent recycled paperboard, containing post-consumer recycled content and innovative packaging made from agricultural fibers.

Sonoco is committed to reducing packaging’s negative impact on our world with ongoing efforts to increase the recycling rate with EnviroCan™ through both the paper and steel recycling streams.

EnviroCan™ is Sonoco’s first paper container with a paper bottom in the region and it provides more options to our customers in terms of choice of substrates. The design of Sonoco’s EnviroCan™ allows it to meet a brand’s ongoing challenge of balancing responsible materials sourcing with product and food safety.
