Our work is so much more impactful than simply converting bags and pouches. Innovations in packaging over the last 50 years have provided practical alternatives to traditional materials like glass, aluminum and rigid plastic. Flexible packaging is unique because it changes shape depending what is (or is not) in it. Compared to those traditional materials, flexible packaging requires less material to create, uses less energy to convert, and consumes less fuel to ship because it can be moved in such high quantities in fewer truckloads.
Flexible packaging accounts for less than 3% of landfill space. When compared to its recyclable competitors, it’s runner up only to aluminum cans (less than half of which are actually recycled). Flexible packaging also outperforms other materials in preserving the freshness of products, reducing food waste and diminishing the risks of spoilage and illness. All things considered, contributing to the flexible packaging industry means we are practicing environmental, social, and financial responsibility.
It’s pretty simple. Less resources, less waste, smaller footprint. For us, it means high satisfaction in knowing our work matters.
