Sustainable Packaging Options
Recyclable PE-PE Films
Our 100% Polyethylene (PE) films are fully recyclable and are customizable to include high-barrier structures, providing optimal product protection. Similar to standard pouch constructions, our recyclable high-barrier films are oxygen and water vapor resistant and feature photo-quality graphics. Our recyclable films are Store Drop-off compliant (part of the How2Recycle program).
Post-Consumer Recycled Films
Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) films are another environmentally friendly packaging option. After recyclable packaging (ex: milk cartons or water bottles) have fulfilled their life cycle, they are diverted from landfills and converted into other commodities, such as new packaging material. The new packaging uses ~28% less virgin polymer, since it’s replaced by PCR resins. By using PCR films in our packaging, we are able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by ~15.25%.*
Our compostable films are perfect for brands seeking a fully-compostable packaging option. At the end of the product life cycle, this type of packaging can be broken down into non-toxic components. It will return to the soil without harming, and will actually nourish, surrounding plant life.
All of our sustainable packaging is FDA compliant for direct food contact.
Sustainable Printing + Inks
Our HP digital printers consume less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases than traditional printers. Our polymer-based inks are compostable and do not contain hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
RBC’s quick-drying and environmentally friendly lamination process keeps Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) out of Consumer Packaged Goods.
Our press-to-close zippers are made from recyclable plastic so there is no need to deconstruct this portion of packaging in order to make it Store-Drop off compliant.
Our dual-layer recyclable films meet the requirements for the How2Recycle “Store Drop-Off” program. Alternatively, the combination of the #2 Resin ID code and generic store drop-off symbol can be used to show consumers how to recycle your packaging.
