Doing our part to renew the planet.
At Spectrum, we take great pride in using materials that are sustainable and recyclable. We consider ourselves a “green” business, thanks in part to our FSC certification. It’s a respected designation that ensures all of our products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.
The papers used for our folding cartons and packaging come from certified tree farms where trees are planted, harvested, and replanted specifically for the paper industry. Paper trees are treated just like any other crop, from apples to oranges and soybeans to corn. With every project, we try to avoid plastic materials because paper is more environmentally sound.
Partnering with an FSC-certified business like Spectrum is also a better way to promote your brand as one that cares about the environment. Did you know that paper farming actually increases the number of trees on our planet? In fact, for every tree harvested from a managed tree farm, five more trees are planted, resulting in 1.7 million new trees on our planet every year.
In service of our long-term sustainability goals, Spectrum has recently transitioned our entire facility to 100% LED lighting.
“We are always looking for new ways to improve the sustainability. In dedication to our green initiatives, we’ve made the transition to 100% LED lighting at Spectrum. This change will help reduce our overall energy consumption and get closer to reaching our company’s ambitious sustainability goals.” — Mark Mills, VP of Sales and Marketing at SPC

At SPC we are always working with our customers to find “green” solutions.
Recently, we partnered with the incredible team at Sweet Pete’s, a candy confectionary company located in Jacksonville, FL. They had wonderful packaging, but it was plastic-based. After several collaborative meetings, we were able to replace their existing plastic container with a folded paper carton that keeps their product fresh while maintaining brand standards and meeting market objectives. The end result was an overwhelming success. This is why we all love working at SPC!
“We are passionate about folded cartons made out of paper board, because paper is a renewable resource.” Says Mark Mills, VP of Sales and Marketing.
