The Carton Council is born! With it, the major producers of carton packaging across the world—
ELOPAK, SIG Combibloc, Evergreen Packaging and Tetra Pak— come together with a commitment to
increase access to and awareness of carton recycling in North America. Within a year, Carton
Council began to implement its plan.
2008: About 18% of households (that’s one in five!) can now recycle their cartons.
