Boxed Up: Bleach-Free Packaging
In 1991, Hewlett-Packard began transitioning from using traditional white, bleached boxes to “kraft” containers, which were bleach-free and brown like the natural wood pulp they came from. The kraft boxes were made without generating dioxins, plus they were cost effective. HP’s Vancouver, Santa Clara and San Diego sites were the first to make the switch. Here, production operators Alan Yancey and Donald Hoffman packaged HP DeskJet 500 printers in kraft boxes at the Vancouver Division.
