Our Environment

Eco-Friendly Paper Tubes

It seems like everyone is jumping on the green bandwagon, promoting environmentalism as the next best thing. At Yazoo, sustainability has been part of the company's philosophy for over a century. Yazoo realizes its responsibility to the environment and recycles all trim and waste generated during the manufacturing process to produce our eco-friendly tubes. Yazoo uses 100% recycled paperboard, made primarily from post-consumer waste, to create our sustainable packaging products. There is no other packaging product that is more environmentally sustainable than paper tubes and cores made with 100% recycled fiber paperboard. The important fact is that the 100% recycled fiber paperboard used in our eco-friendly tubes, truly is 100% recycled, with no virgin fiber content.

Yazoo realizes its responsibility to the environment and recycles all trim and waste generated during the manufacturing process.

Recycling is one of the most important keys to solving the world's solid waste problems. Recycled paper requires about 60% of the energy used to make paper from virgin wood pulp. Every ton of 100% recycled paperboard that we use in our eco-friendly tubes at Yazoo is equal to the energy and landfill savings of 14 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, three cubic yards of landfill space, two barrels of oil, and 4,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity (enough energy to power the average American home for several months).

Yazoo conducts all our operations in full compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations. We are sensitive to environmental issues throughout our business systems including our selection of raw materials. We take seriously our responsibility to protect the environment in which we live and work.
