Truly 100% Recycled

Caraustar is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of 100% recycled paperboard, making us the first choice for environmentally friendly products and packaging

Caraustar's collected recovered fiber goes to our mills for the manufacturing of various coated and uncoated recycled paperboard grades. The recycled paperboard, produced as rolls or cut into sheets, is used by our converting plants and also is sold to external customers. Post-consumer and post-industrial waste papers and packaging fiber are again recovered, and the cycle continues.
