FSC® and SFI®
We work with materials that are environmentally responsible. Paper – our primary material – is totally natural, recyclable and renewable. Colad can source recycled stocks, FSC® and SFI® stocks, to name a few. For more information, visit FSC.org and SFIprogram.org.
Colad is proud to have been named an EPA Green Power Partner through our purchases of energy from renewable sources (such as wind). Our commitment helps reduce the risks associated with climate change by supporting technologies that are more sustainable for businesses and communities.
Colad is the premier provider of custom paper-based packaging in the U.S. For more than 60 years, Colad has worked to improve the health and safety of both our employees of the environment.
Colad works very closely with recycling companies to ensure that every material that can be recycled gets recycled. In 2015, Colad recycled over 900 tons of paper-based scrap – the equivalent of:
- Saving 22,437 trees
- Reducing total energy consumption enough to power 363 homes per year
- Removing the greenhouse gas emissions from 466 cars per year
- Conserving enough water to fill 24 Olympic-sized swim pools
- Keeping 70 garbage trucks worth of solid waste out of landfills
