Each Thanksgiving we gather with family and friends to give thanks and to celebrate the earth’s abundant gifts. This year, show your appreciation by giving back with choices that support our planet’s health, like choosing paper and packaging products when planning your annual get-together.

Along with the lush and green landscape of summer comes picnics, social outings and the latest in innovative packaging in paper and cardboard. Here are just some of the advances manufacturers and companies are making in order to give consumers more conscious choices for the benefit of Mother Earth.
