North American leader in packaging solutions offers award-winning Earth Pact® paperboard made with 100% sugarcane bagasse fibers

ATLANTA, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Veritiv Corporation (NYSE: VRTV), a North American leader in business-to-business distribution solutions, now offers a paperboard-based packaging option made with 100% sugarcane bagasse fibers, an annually renewable, tree-free fiber source that is both recyclable1 and compostable2.

Award-winning Earth Pact paperboard, one of Veritiv's sustainable packaging options, is made with 100% sugarcane bagasse fibers.

Veritiv teamed up with Carvajal Pulp and Paper to market Earth Pact® paperboard. Some Veritiv customers have already experienced the benefits of the Earth Pact® line of products. When one such customer, Biossance, with its brand promise of sustainability in skincare, sought new packaging, Veritiv offered a solution that reinforced Biossance's brand promise and position with Earth Pact®.

Biossance needed not only sustainable paperboard but also structural and graphic package designs, kitting services, transportation, warehousing services, and more. With its network of approximately 170 distribution centers, Veritiv proved to be the optimal supplier. Biossance's creative packaging won the coveted Audience Choice Award at the Cosmoprof North America Beauty Trade Show in 2017 and other major packaging awards.

With the Earth Pact® line of products and designers at Veritiv's packaging design centers, Veritiv is positioned to create new and sustainable package designs that stand out on the shelf, minimize dimensional weight and give customers an exceptional out-of-the box experience.
