The design of Sonoco’s EnviroCan™ allows to meet a brand’s ongoing challenge of balancing responsible materials sourcing with product and food safety, whilst enhancing shelf-life performance.

Benefits & options

Sonoco’s EnviroCan containers, also known as rigid paper containers, are a type of paperboard packaging with a can body made with 80% recycled fibre.

The paperboard containers can be manufactured with a plastic, paper or metal end, whilst a oxygen and moisture barrier layer, can provide food safety and optimal shelf-life performance as needed.

Sonoco’s rigid paper containers have a lower weight and reduced environmental footprint than comparably sized metal cans or other rigid packaging types. The paperboard containers can be produced from sustainably sourced materials and are recyclable. We can provide our customers tailored solutions to meet their sustainability goals and aim for positive results for the environment.

The European RPC portfolio is part of the EnviroSense family, which share similar environmental attributes:
