GREENCOAT® Wax-Replacement Corrugated Boxes

Interstate Container Cambridge developed GREENCOAT®, with leading poultry processor, Mountaire Farms. Interstate Container now supplies top poultry manufacturers throughout the U.S.

An award-winning product, GREENCOAT® boxes are compostable, FBA-certified 100% recyclable and repulpable. GREENCOAT® corrugated boxes withstand high exposure to moisture, rough handling, long storage and transportation, and the ins-and-outs of cold-to-hot environmental conditions.

GREENCOAT® boxes are easier to glue and offer the same strength as traditional cascaded wax boxes and curtain coated wax boxes without the carbon footprint.

Cost-Effectiveness

First, Interstate Container does not outsource the coating of paper to third parties and, thus, controls 100% of GREENCOAT® box manufacturing process. GREENCOAT® boxes are cost neutral to current wax packaging. Furthermore, the sustainable box cuts landfill disposal fees, and customers profit from cost savings.

About ComboPAC™ Bulk Bins

ComboPAC™ bulk bins provide an easy-to-assemble and 100% recyclable packaging solution.
With an integrated lining of tough, waterproof polyethylene (PE) outer-woven sleeve, the bulk bin withstands loading and unloading without leaking. Other benefits include:

• No wax
• 100% recyclable
• One-man, easy assembly
• Reduced transportation costs with more per truckload
• Less warehouse space needed
• No wimpy straps; poly-woven sleeve comes on bulk bin
• Sleeve tucks underneath bin, providing full bottom support
• Sleeve eliminates bulging, bursting and spills, increasing cost savings
• Substantial cost savings with no need for strapped or triple wall bin
