- What does sustainable packaging mean?
- For packaging to be sustainable, both the creation and use of the packaging must be beneficial, safe, and healthy for the environment throughout its lifecycle. It must also be manufactured using clean production technologies and best practices with renewable and/or recyclable materials. Sustainable packaging is physically designed to optimize material and energy, and ultimately, reduce the environmental impact and ecological footprint.
- How is the Econoflex box sustainable and eco-friendly?
- We source 100% recycled kraft cardboard that is also completely recyclable. All of our materials are purchased from US plants who follow industry-standard clean production techniques and best practices, and which are as close to the final production line as possible in order to reduce the ecological footprint and expense of long-distance shipping.
- What is the minimum order quantity?
- Minimum order quantities for Econoflex Shippers start at 1. This makes it super easy to run test orders and ensure that your design is picture-perfect before ordering an entire batch.
- What material is the Econoflex Shipper box made of?
- Our Econoflex custom shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled kraft, single-wall, corrugated cardboard.
- What is 32 ECT corrugated cardboard?
- ECT refers to the "Edge Crush Test" that measures the strength of a piece of cardboard edge to edge (against the “grain” of the ridges, known as “flutes,” between the outer sheets) when compressed. This is an important indicator of how strong a box will be after its assembled, filled, and stacked. 32 ECT is the standard used for shipments between 25 and 44 lbs, under routine packing, shipping, and warehousing conditions.
- What is a half-tone?
- Half-toning is a print technique that breaks up an image into a series of dots with various sizes and spacing to reproduce artwork with full tone range without using a gradient. Our Econoflex box designer automatically converts your artwork into a single-color half-tone. You’ll immediately see the result in the preview and be able to approve the design during proofing.
- Are Econoflex shipping boxes biodegradable?
Yes! Uncontaminated cardboard is naturally biodegradable, so this means that our Econoflex shipping boxes are too. The good news is that even cardboard boxes with food and natural oils can be composted in your garden. Recycling your boxes has the added benefit of reusing the pulp and minimizing the need to cut down more trees.
While we always recommend that you recycle your boxes, be assured that they'll break down over time no matter what bin you put them in.
