Enviro-Board is an extremely durable, and reusable packaging material that has been helping our customers reduce costs for three decades. Made from high-density polyethylene, with up to 94% total recycled content, this packaging material is as environmentally friendly as it is reliable.

Enviro-Board is a Cost Effective & Packaging Solution

Years ago, we realized that some of our customers needed an indefinitely reusable packaging material in order to make their shipping and packaging operations more cost effective. Though much of our highly durable, all-weather wooden packaging is designed to last, some applications seemed to need something even tougher.

Consisting of recycled plastic and high-density polyethylene, Enviro-Board does not break down the way that all wooden packaging eventually will. As a result, very demanding shipping and manufacturing environments can indefinitely reuse Enviro-Board packaging in their operations. Unlike other types of industrial packaging, Timber Creek is even able to repair boxes, pallets, and crates made from Enviro-Board. As a result, repeat purchases of Enviro-Board reusable packaging is rarely needed.

Timber Creek has seen some of our Enviro-Board industrial packaging last for over 20 years. By now, those Enviro-Board containers and pallets have paid for themselves multiple times over, saving our customers a significant amount in packaging costs. By comparison, other types of competing polyethylene reusable packaging do not last as long, because they are typically manufactured with sawdust as a filler that weakens the overall integrity of the material.

Who Benefits from Enviro-Board Reusable Packaging

We most often see Enviro-Board used in closed-loop shipping operations that want to use the same shipping materials over and over. Businesses in the automotive industry, light industrial manufacturing, construction, paper, and steel manufacturing are just a few examples of the types of customers who use Enviro-Board.

These customers like Enviro-Board for its durability, its ability to be used in overseas shipping, and for its level of customization. Timber Creek can craft Enviro-Board pallets, crates, and boxes in unlimited sizes and quantities, giving customers the flexibility they need. So far, we’ve built Enviro-Board boxes as large as 8 feet long and 4 feet wide, and as small as a shoe box. Even larger or smaller options are still possible.

Another benefit of Enviro-Board as a reusable packaging material is the ability to keep track of Enviro-Board industrial packaging using ID tagging. This is especially convenient in automated shipping and inventory operations. Enviro-Board reusable packaging can also be stenciled with branding and labeling to further aid in parcel identification and tracking.
