Eco-Friendly, All-Paper Construction Canister with Food Grade Greaseproof Liner and Custom Label

December 10th, 2012

A five-star luxury resort celebrating its 30-year anniversary needed an eco-friendly, biodegradable, food grade container labeled with their designed artwork, for edible favors to hand out to guests attending its mile-marker celebration.

One of our most eco-friendly packaging options is our paper cap top and bottom. For this all-paper construction, we used our natural kraft container and paper cap ends, with a food grade greaseproof liner inside. The greaseproof liner keeps the oils from the contained granola from seeping through the paper. The customer had the opportunity to put their own artwork on a label that Custom Paper Tubes applied to the outside of the tube, creating their own unique, custom container.
