Sustainable Packaging Containers
Recyclable Corrugated Boxes
We offer 100% recyclable corrugated boxes and mailers in a huge assortment of sizes, ECTs, and styles. Contact Crown to find the right sustainable corrugated option for your application.
Recyclable Cold Chain Packaging
We offer sustainable cold chain packaging (including temperature-controlled box liners) from a number of manufacturers.
Curbside Recyclable Mailers
Ask about eco-friendly mailers that can be disposed of in standard curbside recyclable bins. Make it easy for customers to recycle packaging used in e-commerce applications.
Thin-Gauge Poly Bags
Reduce your plastic usage by down-gauging to bags made from thin, high-performance poly, requiring less material and contributing less waste, without sacrificing quality and durability.
SUstainable Protective Packaging Products
Paper Void Fill
All-natural paper-based void fill solutions are 100% renewable, reusable, and recyclable.
A paper-based filler offers excellent physical properties in terms of absorbing shocks and protecting sensitive products and is also more sustainable than plastic alternatives.
Wrapping is often an important element of packaging, providing protection against surface abrasion and minor handling incidents.
Paper wrapping solutions safeguard products against these challenges, and they are also designed to prevent damage caused by the internal impacts that can result when several items are packed together in the same container.
Eco-Friendly Bubble Wrap
Recycled content inflatable cushioning creates a distinct eco-friendly advantage over standard inflatable bubble, which is made from virgin resin.
Cushion your products to protect against vibration and shock during shipping and handling while enhancing sustainability. This cushioning is inflatable on demand, which means more efficient storing and shipping.
Eco-Friendly Air Pillows
Air pillows made from recycled content provide the benefits of void fill while featuring at least 95% post-industrial material. Each pillow is manufactured from reusable, low-density polyethylene.
These air pillows may be recycled at 18,000 retail store drop-off locations nationwide.
Eco-Friendly Tapes & Adhesives
RECYCLABLE WATER ACTIVATED TAPE (WAT)
As the first certified recyclable carton sealing tape, water-activated tape (WAT) is a Kraft paper tape that is re-pulpable with the corrugate it is applied to.
It bonds instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber surfaces and therefore, generates an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper-evident package.
Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape
We offer Corru-Grip™ hot melt carton sealing tape, designed specifically for optimal closure of highly recycled corrugate, including 100% recycled box.
The Corru-Grip adhesive formulation also successfully seals boxes in wider ranges of temperature and humidity than traditional hot melt carton sealing tape products.
Eco-Friendly Spray Adhesive
Eco-Friendly Films & Bundling Supplies
Ultra-Thin Stretch Films
Choose a film designed with sustainability in mind. We offer several high-performance down-gauged stretch films that allow you to reduce plastic usage while maintaining superior load containment.
Pre-Stretch Stretch Film
Decrease the amount of plastic used in your operation by switching to pre-stretch films with specialized additives that allow for high load containment and easier application while requiring less poly-based material.
Recycled Content Strapping
We provide a full range of strapping, including high-performance embossed polyester manufactured from recycled and virgin content.
REcyclable Edge Protection
We offer sustainable edge protection solutions to protect and stabilize loads during transport, including cornerboards made from paperboard that are 100% recyclable.
Sustainable Printing & Labeling
Labels with FSC-Compliant Papers
Crown provides labels that are FSC compliant meaning that they “come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.”
Thin Liner Labels
Down-gauge to high-performance labels with a thinner liner, producing less waste while delivering more labels per roll.
RECYCLED CONTENT LABELS

Compostable Content Labels
Support your green initiatives with specialized labels made with compostable materials that degrade after disposal.
