SADDLE BROOK, N.J. (Feb. 24, 2011)-Sealed Air has received the
Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) chain of custody certification for Jiffylite® mailers, Jiffy® Padded mailers, Yesterday’s News™ mailers, and Jiffy® Utility mailers. The chain of custody process tracks products through different stages of paper production, starting in the forest and ending with consumption by customers; ensuring that chain of custody certified products come from well-managed forests and recycled paper.
Sealed Air’s Jiffy Mailers® were audited by an independent third-party accredited by SFI and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Sealed Air will begin labeling Jiffy Mailer® products with the SFI logo denoting that these products are produced using responsible fiber sources.
“Jiffy Mailers® are one of Sealed Air’s flagship brands, offering a broad range of packaging solutions for small parcel shipping. Most Jiffy Mailer® products contain recycled materials, and the new SFI chain of custody certification demonstrates to our customers a further commitment to the environment and sustainability,” said Paul McEvoy Sealed Air’s business manager of Jiffy Mailer® product line. “Sealed Air continues to live up to its SmartLife™ Initiative – a multi-platform approach to raise awareness about sustainable packaging to outline how the Company is advancing its sustainability mission within its business strategy.”
