Interstate Containerâa corrugated packaging solution for companies in need of strong and sustainable moisture-resistant corrugated packaging. Interstate Container Cambridge and Interstate Container Columbia ship over 3.2 million wax-alternative boxes each month. The boxes are compostable and FBA-certified 100% recyclable and repulpable.
GREENCOATâ boxes provide the same strength than traditional cascaded wax boxes and curtain coated wax boxes. They withstand high exposure to moisture, rough handling, long storage, transportation, and shifts from cold-to-hot environmental conditions. GREENCOATâ boxes are also easier to glue than waxed boxes.
Interstate Container controls 100% of GREENCOATâ’s manufacturing process; the company does not outsource the coating of paper to third parties, which increases cost effectiveness. Likewise, customers experience cost savings, when they no longer have to pay landfill disposal fees.
Interstate Container Cambridge invested 5 years of R&D to develop and successfully trial GREENCOATâ wax-alternative boxes with leading poultry processor, Mountaire Farms. GREENCOATâ has reduced an estimated 100,000 tons of greenhouse gases for Mountaire Farms, lowered costs and streamlined Mountaire Farm’s supply chain.
