Sustainability

Sustainability since Day 1. Our initiatives as a company to make the planet a better and more thriving environment for future generations.
MATERIAL AND RESOURCE
EFFICIENCY

The use of life cycle assessment tools has shown that flexible packaging usually results in less fossil fuel usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and water use than other formats due to its being very lightweight (source reduction).

TRANSPORTATION
BENEFITS

Flexible materials are usually shipped either flat or on a roll like paper towels. This allows many packages to be shipped on a truck, reducing the number of trucks needed for inbound materials versus rigid packaging.

VERY DENSE
PRODUCT-TO-PACKAGE RATIO

A measure of material efficiency is how much of a product is sold to the consumer and its packaging by weight. Flexible packaging almost always has a higher product-to-package ratio when compared to other packaging formats.

Product
PROTECTION

Flexible packaging offers product protection, keeping products together to reduce spoilage. Additionally, flexible's ability to resist denting or breakage without spilling contents make it attractive for e-commerce shipping.

SOURCE
REDUCTION

Flexible packaging is lightweight, usually weighing much less than other materials and thereby providing source reduction, which is the top component of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Hierarchy.
