Why opt for wood packaging?

A sustainable resource

Wood is a natural and renewable resource, the harvesting of wood from North American forests is considered to be one of the best international forestry practices which have contributed for decades of growth of our forests.

Did you know that…

Forests cover about 751 million acres which is equivalent to 1/3 of the US territory.

An eco-friendly choice

The production of wood pallets requires a low energy level. Through the process of photosynthesis, trees use an abundant natural resource that is the sun. Trees capture CO2 from the air and combine with water from the ground to produce an incredible organic material, wood.

A recyclable material

Wood is recyclable, reuse of pallets and wood packaging is strongly encouraged in North America.

As a part of marketing efforts, Nature's Packaging is proud to present this short video to inform people about the numerous benefits associated with the design of wooden packaging. In short, this video encourages us to make a clarified decision and, by extension, to choose the sustainable way.
