Good things come in friendly packaging

True to its values, which include recycling and protecting the environment, Cascades has accomplished a major first step in North America by introducing recycled material into its EVOK® polystyrene foam food trays. Containing up to 50%* recycled material, EVOK is designed for packaging fresh meats, fish, poultry and fresh produce.

By substituting a portion of the virgin material with recycled content, Cascades has reduced the environmental impact of its polystyrene foam packaging. In addition to offering food packaging that is just as efficient as traditional polystyrene foam trays, EVOK® products allow a 15% to 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions according to the manufacturing location and compared with Cascades’ previous polystyrene foam packaging. Now that’s progress!
