Strong and resilient fiber-based packaging solution.
EdgePak Straw is a highly resistant sustainable packaging solution that is biodegradable and easily recyclable. It consists of cardboard and straw, which are composed of strong, water-resistant fibers that improve the ratio between resistance and weight of the packaging solution.
When to use it?
Stacking strength - EdgePak Straw provides a stacking strength exceeding 4 tons.
Flexible system - A wide variety of combinations can be designed based on flow and product, and it is built to easily adapt to standard pallets, making it a flexible system.
All type of applications - Ideal sustainable packaging solution for heavy machine components, automotive CKD flows, pumps, valves, servers, parts or machines bolted to its pallet base.
Strong and resilient
The innovative design creates a sustainable packaging solution as strong as plywood that has better stacking strength than a triple wall corrugated box.
Easy to handle and safe
This sustainable packaging solution is easy to handle and can be assembled without using a single nail. It creates a quiet and safe work environment at both packing and unpacking destination.
Edgepak Straw has minimal impact on the environment compared to other solutions:
- Requires less material to achieve the same resistance.
- Reduces CO2 emissions since it’s made from straw waste that would be otherwise burnt.
- It’s biodegradable and easily recyclable.
- Contributes to society by creating revenue for local communities who earn money from the residue of their crops.
Customizable and flexible
EdgePak Straw is a sustainable packaging solution that can be custom made with different styles of lids and pallets to match the needs of your products.

Why is Strawboard strong?
EdgePak Straw evolved from a heavy-duty corrugated solution to a sustainable packaging with lower cost and increased stacking strength.
The compact, wet mechanical process makes straw pulp more resistant to moisture than paper. The straw fibers are short (not flexible) but very stiff compared to wood fiber, when combining the layers, it gives the material great strength.
For all types of applications
EdgePak Straw can be used for a wide variety of applications, ranging from light to heavy products. This sustainable packaging solution can safely ship products via road, sea, and air. It is ideal for shipping goods, such as heavy machine components, automotive CKD flows, pumps, valves, servers, parts and machines bolted to its pallet base.
