Wood, the ultimate green packaging product: Renewable, Recyclable, Reusable.

Choosing a wooden box as your packaging solution is the most efficient way to improve your own carbon footprint.

The 910 tons of CO2 Gas emissions generated by our manufacturing activity, are offset by 1005 tons of CO2 emissions sequestered in our Wooden products, meaning Golden State Box Factory generates a net Carbon positive impact of 95 tons of CO2 every year. The benefit of carbon sequestration is greater than the Greenhouse Gas emissions derived from the overall cycle from the forest management to the recycling or landfilling stages.

Golden State Box Factory is proud to only use FSC Certified Wood in our products, in addition to other environmentally friendly manufacturing practices including:

- Use of water-based varnishes: conventional solvent-based varnishes contain high levels of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and HAPs (Hazardous Air Pollutants) while water-based varnishes are widely regarded for having significantly fewer levels of these harmful byproducts.

- Reducing wood waste from the initial product design stage: by taking the time to fully-understand your product inside and out we are able to help curb wood waste and cost by identifying superfluous or unnecessary facets of your product. Doing this in the design stage eliminates the potential for unnecessary wood waste and carbon emissions from the start.


Despite the development of other materials, wood remains one of the most economical and sustainable sources available for the manufacturing of packaging and retail displays.

The woods we use to manufacture these products are all FSC Certified, sourced from sustainably grown forests in Idaho & Oregon. We refuse to use overseas bamboo and wood products when pine or poplar grown right here in the US in well-managed forests is the most ecological and environmentally healthy option. The manufacture and transportation of wood products from these forest requires less fossil fuel than non wood alternative materials such as metals, or plastics.
