Our Commitment to Green
13 April 2023
By Chris Mitchell In the summer of 2019, my 5-year-old twin daughters were playing on a recreational soccer team and I was fortunate enough to be their coach. Every Saturday morning was a struggle to get out of the house, but one weekend we made it to a game, seemingly, without a hitch. The girls had their breakfast, dressed in their uniform, and the car was loaded in record time, and as we pulled into the park I looked over at my wife and said, “I feel like we are forgetting something...
Where Sustainability Meets Function
21 March 2022
Written by: Dave Barr When you walk through a store and look at all the flexible packaging on the shelves, do you know how many are made of paper? It’s hard to tell sometimes because a lot of packaging is actually plastic that’s just made to look like paper, but we’ll tell you: not enough packaging is made out of sustainable material. While it may look like paper, it doesn’t function like paper and is harmful to the environment. From product concept to end-of- life, ...

In 2020 we had the opportunity to open our headquarters in a new building in Alpharetta, Georgia, and design the whole space for the benefit of our employees. Kristen McDonald, Dunn Paper’s CHRO, was heavily involved in brin...
Introducing BiOrigin™ – The Next Generation Of Sustainable Coated Paper
25 January 2021
We’ve Dunn it again – we’ve taken everything you know and love about paper, stripped it down, and built it back up. Over the last several years, European regulations have banned the use of PFAS chemicals in food packaging papers. Long before the FDA took action to sunset the manufacture and sale of these additives in the U.S., however, Dunn developed paper grades that offer the same level of performance but are PFAS-free. Paper is inherently sustainable, but the chemicals t...
