Emerald Brand, known for its unique, Tree-Free™ and Plastic-free line of disposable products, has launched the Emerald Ecovations division, which licensees sustainable Tree-Free™ raw material and finished products to companies and brands across the globe.
Tree-Free™ material technology has been a staple of Emerald’s sustainable product line since the early 2000’s. With Emerald Ecovations licensing division in place, companies that wish to bring sustainable solutions into their own line of disposable paper and plastic products now have that opportunity.
The launch comes at an opportune time for brands that are heavily reliant on tree-based paper for their products or product packaging. Price instability and a lack of high-quality recycled material options have left many companies in a bind searching for affordable and sustainable raw materials. Market predictions show no signs that this trend will reverse anytime soon, making alternative fiber options even more alluring.
Emerald manufactures Tree-Free™ finished goods in a number of product categories, including towel, tissue, cup stock, folding carton board, packaging paper, molded fiber, and more. All manufacturing for Emerald’s licensing division is taking place in the U.S.
“The Emerald Ecovations launch is perhaps one of the most exciting launches since the Company’s founding. We can now bring sustainable materials and products to companies across the globe, which will result in an enormous environmental impact reduction. Broadening the scope of our Tree-Free™ material technology also gives brands a unique differentiator in a market that is, for the time being, still mostly dominated by tree fiber,” says Jaclyn McDuffey, Managing Director.
Early adopters licensing Emerald’s Tree-Free™ material production are already underway, with partnership announcements expected in Q4 2018.
