Fairfield, New Jersey — April 6, 2009
Unifoil Corporation (www.unifoil.com), a trailblazer in the development of environment-friendly packaging and printing materials that create product differentiation, is pleased to announce it has received chain-of-custody certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program. Unifoil is a leading global specialty converter of paper, board, synthetic paper, plastic, film, foil, and metallized and holographic substrates.
“FSC and SFI credentials are essential to customers and the consumer, who increasingly demand proof of environmental responsibility,” says Joseph Funicelli, CEO and President of Unifoil Corporation. “These certifications are the perfect complement to our value-added environment-friendly innovations, most notably our recyclable non-laminated metallized Unilustre® papers and boards, which we have been manufacturing for over 15 years. We are very pleased to have our efforts supported by the FSC and SFI.”
Unifoil’s award-winning recyclable Unilustre® papers and boards and its new recyclable Ultralustre® plastics, both of which are non-laminated, film-free, foil-free and made without solvents, satisfy consumer-product-goods companies’ sustainability initiatives. Unilustre and Ultralustre materials contribute to source reduction, use less energy and fewer materials compared with alternative products, are less expensive to ship, and can significantly reduce a company’s carbon footprint. Both are available in silver, custom colors, and holographics.
Other recyclable products from Unifoil include Unicote™ and Uniblock™ materials. Unifoil also converts materials made from recycled content.
