Three decades of packaging sustainability
“Our company below the Orlické Mountains is located in a region full of traditions, where historic and cultural monuments are sensitively set in a beautiful landscape. We appreciate these values and are not indifferent to the environment in which we live. That’s why we supply the market with packaging systems mainly made of paper and corrugated cardboard, and when paper cannot be used, we try to find the most environmentally friendly option.” Ing. Ladislav Horčička, the founder of the company.
In the thirty years we have been in the packaging market, the world around us has changed beyond recognition. Back then, few people could even explain concepts such as ecology or sustainability.
Today, the situation is completely reversed and almost everyone is trying to be sustainable and socially responsible, at least on paper. In some cases, however, this seems almost inappropriate: after all, how could a textile factory based in Bangladesh be sustainable?
