Progress Luv2Pak pioneered the environmental movement in the packaging industry and is dedicated to being an agent of change for its customers.
Progress Luv2Pak was among the first to respond to the needs of our global crisis. When the public outcry and subsequent media frenzy were first heard, it became evident that just as the environment changes, so too will the packaging world. This fundamental reality was the birth of Give Green.
Progress Luv2Pak is proud to express its commitment to the care of our planet and considers ecological impact in every decision we make. Now, more than ever, the world has embraced the reality behind human choice and its correlation with our destiny. Give Green is the symbol of our pledge to clients and consumers.
Retailers are perpetually searching for environmentally sound solutions for their packaging programs. Our experience has allowed us to face obstacles and learn from them. We are confident in our ability to deliver the most eco-conscious packaging options in the most effective way.
Our dedicated Green Team has developed a full environmentally responsible range with eco alternatives available at every price.
We proudly offer:
- White coated and uncoated paper for bags with 40% post-consumer waste (PCW) fiber

Why Give Green
Changing personal behavior is hard. Changing global problems is even harder.
The good news is that we have reached a cultural tipping point.
The Conscious Consumer has arrived.
After centuries of neglecting natural and human resources, the conscious consumer now cares about environmental and social responsibility including fair trade and worker equality.
Conscious consumers are increasingly aware of how their actions impact local communities and small, independent businesses. They demand ethical responsibility from the companies they support.
Conscious consumers actively supports brands that align with their priorities, creating a loyalty that makes it difficult for competitors to change. When conscious consumers buy, they make a statement about their values and priorities.
Government and industry standards have been established and continue to develop as some countries begin to legislate and support our shared responsibility.
The world is watching and judging the environmental impact of our collective actions. A company's image will be perceived by the extent of their efforts to reduce the damage to our atmosphere and ecosystems.
Today's retailers are calling for green packaging solutions.
Progress Luv2Pak has responded to the call.
