Paper-based packages, containers, sacks and bags are part of our everyday lives, so it can be easy to forget what makes them unique. Unlike other packaging options, paper-based packages are made from trees, a completely renewable source. They are also the most recovered packages for recycling, making them a sustainable, responsible choice throughout their life cycle. Most paper is made from wood cellulose, the most abundant chemical on planet earth. Cellulose is renewable, reusable, and sustainable. Cellulose-based products show up in unexpected places: toothpaste, cough syrup, Vitamins A and E, makeup, cologne, shampoo, food packaging, furniture, concrete blocks, football helmets, photographic film, and even ice cream.
