For over 100 years, Sonoco has produced a diverse range of converted products and packaging. This particular challenge is focused on developing new products and packaging using Uncoated Recycled Paperboard (URB).

URB is made from 100% recycled material and is 100% recyclable. Sonoco’s URB is used in many converted product applications such as floor liner, tissue cores, concrete forming tubes, notebook pads, and HVAC filter frames. URB can also be used in packaging as an alternative to materials such as plastic, glass, metal and other non-paper substrates.

Sonoco is seeking new markets and products for our paperboard. Our challenge is simple: In what ways can our paperboard be used that doesn’t exist today. To see exactly what we do, watch this video:

NOTE: Please focus on paperboard, not corrugated board or structures.
