Chicago Paper Tube & Can Company wins NJPEC Sustainability Award for the third year with their eco-friendly 100% paperboard EcoPush package.

EcoPush is a 100% paperboard package made from up to 80% recycled materials (60% post-consumer content) with absolutely no plastic or metal.

Chicago Paper Tube & Can Company, a leading manufacturer of round paperboard packaging, was recognized by the New Jersey Packaging Executives Club (NJPEC) with a Sustainability Award. NJPEC honored Chicago Paper Tube’s winning EcoPush ( package at their 37th Annual Package of the Year Awards Gala on November 19, 2015. Packages are judged on design excellence, shelf impact, uniqueness, cost effectiveness and graphic presentation.

“We were honored to have EcoPush chosen as this year’s NJPEC Sustainability award winner, especially against a selection of very worthy competitors,” says Chicago Paper Tube General Manager Jonathan Dudlak. “Working with paper, we are lucky to have an inherently clean and sustainable medium that we can obtain and convert close to home here in the Midwest, so we feel obligated to find new and innovative ways to use it in sustainable packaging.”

EcoPush is a 100% paperboard package made from up to 80% recycled materials (60% post-consumer content) with absolutely no plastic or metal. The entire package is biodegradable, compostable, and simple to recycle without any disassembly of the container. All of the paper and glues used in its manufacture are FDA compliant, and no solvents or harmful chemicals are used in the process, and the only waste product is a small amount of these same materials, which are recycled in return. All raw materials used in the standard EcoPush packaging are sourced from Midwestern American producers and is easily distributed from its Chicago, Illinois point of manufacture which minimizes all transportation costs.

Available in sizes from 0.3oz to 2oz, EcoPush is ideal for salves, solid perfume, sunscreen, deodorant and lip or whole-body balm. EcoPush can easily be styled with a premium appearance for cosmetic and personal-care products or outfitted with a natural look for organic branding.

The NJPEC competition draws hundreds of packaging submissions from a cross section of industries, including Health and Beauty, Fragrance, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Entertainment and Household. A distinguished panel of packaging professionals from the various industries judges each package submission. Founded in 1962, the NJPEC is an organization of packaging professionals from all disciplines in the industry, who share information and hands-on business experience.
