Sustainability

At Liquibox, our commitment to sustainability flows through everything we do

Our dedication to sustainable packaging that protects our customers, our people and our planet is what makes us who we are. We work in partnership to design high quality solutions that reduce our customers’ carbon footprint, and our own. By using fewer resources, minimizing the environmental impact of our operations, and collaborating with other industry leaders, we’re helping to overcome the challenges of sustainable packaging.
