Interstate Launches GREENCOAT® Website for Sustainable Packaging Buyers

Interstate Resources News homepage: http://news.interstateresources.com

GREENCOATâ website (www.greencoat.net) makes requesting information and samples of wax-alternative corrugated boxes easy for packaging buyers in the poultry, meat, seafood, fresh produce, floral, and landscaping industries.


Interstate Container has released a website for GREENCOATâ wax-free boxes, a 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.

From the website, visitors can call or submit a quick form to request GREENCOATâ samples to run in side-by-side trials with their current packaging. The website also offers PDF downloads, links to upcoming trade shows and to social media channels.


About GREENCOATâ Wax-Replacement Boxes 

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.

Award-Winning & Socially Conscious Corrugated Packaging

Interstate Container has received awards for GREENCOATâ and for its contributions to its local communities. Dorchester Chamber of Commerce named Interstate Container Cambridge 2011 Large Chamber Business of the Year for its good standing with obligations and active support of the community and chamber activities.  

At the 11th Annual Sustainable Design Awards, Global Green, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering global climate improvement, awarded 1st Pioneer Award to Interstate Container for its advancements with GREENCOATâ

Mountaire Farms and WMDT, ABC-affiliated television station in Salisbury, MD, named Interstate Container Cambridge as the recipient of the WMDT/Mountaire Farms Environmental Star of the Month Award for July 2010. 

Interstate Container is a member of Delmarva Poultry Industry, Global Green Coalition for Resource Recovery (CoRR), North Carolina Poultry Federation, Produce Marketing Association, and Sustainable Packaging Coalition
