New 3-Tube Box

In an effort to reduce the size of its environmental footprint, Golden will be making a change in the 3-tube box that is used for shipping 2 oz. tubes. The current corrugated box will be replaced by a 100% recycled post consumer fiber box. The new box folds flat for disposal and, with less packaging overall, there is less waste. In addition, the new box will be easier to insert the tube for shipping, as well as remove the tubes at retail for placement in the rack, saving labor costs on both ends. Shipping tests indicate that the new box will perform equally well to the performance of the corrugated box. The new tube box is expected to start shipping around the beginning of October.

The changes in box dimension are shown below:
