Sustainable Materials

Today, consumers are focusing on convenience and social responsibility. Sustainable-driven packaging is more than reducing use of non-renewable resources – it’s also about efficient cost savings.CL&D's goal is to minimize the overall footprint on the environment through responsible business practices including environmental preservation, energy conservation, recycling and reuse. We collaborate with our customers from project inception through introduction working to optimize the balance between package preservation, protection and the item’s presence in the marketplace. In design processes, we continue to push for gauge reduction and simplification, where possible, eliminating over-packaging.
