Industry Continues Support for Paper and Packaging Board Program

Paper and paper-based packaging manufacturers in the United States have renewed their commitment to sharing the industry’s successful sustainability story by continuing support for the Paper and Packaging Board program.

In a recent referendum, 53 percent of domestic manufacturers and importers — who represented 53 percent of the volume of paper and paper-based packaging voting in the referendum — voted in favor of continuing the Paper and Packaging Board program.

The decision comes in time for America Recycles Day on Nov. 15, another opportunity to highlight paper’s unmatched recycling record.

Paper and Packaging Board program shares sustainability message
The Paper and Packaging Board was started in 2014 as the oversight board for the paper industry’s national promotion campaign. It’s funded by U.S. paper manufacturers and importers, including Domtar. In 2021, the campaign began messaging focused on the sustainability benefits of paper products and paper-based packaging, including the How Life Unfolds® campaign and the Box to Nature program.

“[Paper and packaging producers] are investing billions today to keep tomorrow’s promises and maintain our position as one of the most recycled materials on the planet,” says Mary Anne Hansan, president of the Paper and Packaging Board.
