Pet Care

Your customer's pets come in all shapes, sizes, colors and abilities. Fortunately, so does our packaging.


Conscientious pet owners want what’s best for their pets, and so do we!

One of the newest members of our EnviroSense™ family of sustainable packaging, the EcoSeal® can provides the strength and performance of Sonoco’s traditional paper container, with the added feature of a customizable paper bottom. The EcoSeal® can is also eligible for How2Recycle® “Check Locally” labeling, which is great for your brand and your customers. A project of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition® (SPC), How2Recycle is a standardized labeling system to ensure packaging clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public in accordance with Federal Trade Commission Green Guides. Offering speed-to-market, with a low capital investment, our EcoSeal® container is perfect for short-run initiatives—like holiday promotions, new product trials and small SKUs. Suited to dry treats and kibble, the EcoSeal® container compliments premium and wholesome brands through the use of recycled fiber and cutting edge graphics abilities.
