The FLSK in sugar cane paper

Die FLSK Produkte im Zuckerrohrpapier

You take the tube box of your FLSK order out of the box in amazement. You treated yourself to a FLSK stainless from our all natural line, but you didn't expect this packaging: fresh, chic design. Somehow more modern, more reduced. And how it feels under your fingertips!

The packaging of the all natural series differs not only visually and tactilely, but also in terms of sustainability. Instead of the previous FSC Mix cardboard, we now use 100% tree-free material made from sugarcane paper.

Why is sugarcane paper sustainable?

Sugarcane paper is currently considered one of the most sustainable materials on the market. It comes from Colombia and is based on the cellulose contained in sugar cane. Learn here what makes the fiber an environmentally friendly alternative.

  • Sugarcane fibers are a waste product of sugar production: instead of disposing of the fibers, they are upcycled to make sugarcane paper - no additional cultivation areas are necessary.

  • Every fifth tree is cut down for the paper industry: no tree has to die for our packaging. This reduces the clearing of forests – our important CO₂ stores. Instead of nine long years like a eucalyptus tree, a sugar cane grows back in 13 months. It is therefore considered a rapidly renewable resource.

  • Recycling allows us to use raw materials in cycles: You can recycle sugar cane paper as normal with waste paper. This means there is no unnecessary waste.

By the way, most of the tree-based paper comes to us from distant countries. Our European forestry industry has long been unable to meet the demand for paper.

Sweet! Facts about all natural packaging made from sugar cane paper

  • Exclusive packaging for the all natural series: We supply you with the FLSK drinking bottles and CUP coffee to go cups from the stainless all natural series in sustainable sugar cane paper sleeves.

  • Without optical brighteners or bleaching chemicals: We leave the sugarcane paper we use in its natural color, which saves 12.6% energy and 13% water compared to bleached sugarcane paper.

  • Non-GMO sugarcane : Our sugarcane paper comes from the Cauca Valley in southwestern Colombia and is produced locally from non-GMO sugarcane.
