PlanToys Partners with Brown Box for High-Quality, Eco-Friendly Packaging

PlanToys emphasizes the production of goods within the factory and carefully considers the entire supply chain. The procurement department diligently works to find manufacturers and sources of raw materials that allow us to control quality while promoting sustainability.

Inspiration for Achieving Sustainability in Packaging Production for PlanToys

In an era where sustainability has become the core of business, Brown Boxes Co., Ltd. has transitioned to environmentally friendly packaging production. Embracing a business development approach that encompasses quality, efficiency, and sustainability, Brown Boxes has, for over 19 years, dedicated itself not only to producing high-quality packaging but also to considering the environmental and community impact. This commitment has been inspired and supported by Plan Creations Co., Ltd., a key partner with a similar sustainability policy.

19 Years of Sustainable Development

Brown Boxes has been established for over 19 years and specializes in designing and producing paper packaging, such as corrugated boxes for cartons and offset boxes. The company primarily serves customers in the southern region of Thailand, mainly from the rubber, frozen food, canned fish, rubberwood furniture, and toy industries.

In the past, we focused on producing high-quality packaging for general industries. However, today’s market and customer demands have evolved. They now require not only efficient packaging but also environmentally friendly solutions. In response, we have shifted our philosophy and production processes to align with these demands. We carefully select materials and develop production processes that minimize environmental impact, such as sourcing paper from sustainable sources and using safe inks for producers and the environment.

Additionally, we emphasize designing recyclable packaging and effectively managing waste from our production processes. This ensures that Brown Boxes's packaging contributes to environmental conservation and long-term sustainability.

Integrating Sustainability into Business Practices

Brown Boxes collaborates with Siam Kraft Industry Co., Ltd., a paper manufacturer with a sustainability policy. They use a mix of recycled paper pulp and virgin pulp from FSC-certified plantations. The production process emphasizes environmentally safe water usage and color treatment methods. Additionally, Brown Boxes prioritizes the well-being of employees and the environment around our factory, dedicating more than 60% of the factory area to green spaces.

Moreover, we support the community through various initiatives, such as producing paper boxes for local products and creating paper beds for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pave the path for ISO 14001 Certification.

Brown Boxes has maintained ISO 9001 certification for over seven years and is working towards ISO 14001 certification, which focuses on environmental management in production processes. This standard will enhance customer confidence and support sustainable development. Key initiatives include:

- Improving Production Processes: Reducing water and energy usage and efficiently managing waste.

- Sustainable Material Usage: Choose paper from FSC-certified sources and use water-based inks that are safe for employees and the environment.

- Continuous Evaluation and Improvement: Assessing environmental risks at every production stage and aligning processes with international standards.

- Employee Training and Engagement: Conduct training sessions on ISO 14001 requirements and promote employee involvement in environmental conservation.

These efforts will not only help in achieving ISO 14001 certification but also contribute to long-term sustainability and operational excellence.

Brown Boxes's Preparedness for Customer Sustainability Demands

Currently, customers in the packaging industry are increasingly aware of and prioritize sourcing environmentally friendly materials, such as FSC and Green Label standards. Brown Boxes recognizes this demand and has undertaken comprehensive measures to prepare accordingly. The company has implemented the FSC Chain of Custody (COC) to ensure that the materials used are sustainably sourced and certified from origin to production.

Key actions include:

- Using 100% Recycled Paper and Certified Pulp: Ensuring that all paper and pulp come from sustainable, certified sources.

- Efficient Waste Management: Implementing effective waste management practices to minimize environmental impact.

- Internal System Preparation: Developing internal systems to obtain additional certifications to meet long-term customer demands.

These initiatives position Brown Boxes to meet evolving sustainability requirements and demonstrate a commitment to environmental responsibility.

Waste Management in Brown Boxes's Packaging Business

Brown Boxes prioritizes the management of paper waste generated during production to maximize resource efficiency and minimize environmental impact. The waste paper is meticulously sorted by type, including corrugated, duplex, paper with heavy printing, and plastic-coated paper. These sorted paper wastes are then compacted into bales and sent to SCG's pulp production plant in Kanchanaburi.

The waste paper is pulped and processed at the plant into new paper sheets. This recycling process helps conserve natural resources and promote efficient material use. It also reduces waste generation, saves energy, and lowers transportation costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Brown Boxes effectively contributes to environmental sustainability and operational efficiency by implementing these practices.

Collaboration with PlanToys

PlanToys is a partner with a progressive and sustainability-focused business policy. They prioritize product quality, reasonable pricing, and environmental and societal considerations. This has continuously driven Brown Boxes to evolve and align with PlanToys' approach. We must ensure efficient production, competitive pricing, and timely delivery.

Working with PlanToys has also inspired Brown Boxes to commit to becoming a green organization, focusing on both internal and external environmental impacts. We consider the community and stakeholders and care for our employees and partners to ensure that our business achieves quality, efficiency, and sustainability in all aspects.
