Thrive is our platform for a variety of award-winning, Sustainable Flexible Packaging solutions.

We are dedicated to supporting your Sustainability mission and offer a toolbox of flexible packaging alternatives that brand-owners and consumers can feel good about.

THRIVE™

Every year, more consumers are choosing brands that do their part in protecting the environment. In comparison with rigid packaging materials, flexibles use only a small amount of material, reduce product and transportation costs, save on warehouse space, and increase the quantity of product that can be shipped on a per-truck basis.

PPT joins you in your bid toward green production. We present Thrive™ — a line of packaging solutions that preserve the valuable features of Purposeful, Powerful Packaging. It’s available in both All PE (recyclable through In-Store Drop-Off Program) and with Post-Consumer Recycled Content.

Formats for both include:

Rollstock – Laminated films with a large printable surface
Pinch-Bottom Pouches – Bags with a stable bottom and a wide array of top sealing options
Large Lay-Down Bags – Bags that lay down flat to maximize shelf space
Stand-Up Pouches – Pouches designed to stand upright. Extremely convenient to handle and transport.
Box Pouch – Pouches with a box-like bottom that stands on its own

Our flexible packaging also boasts the following features:

  • Lightweight – Flexible packaging materials are lighter than conventional rigid, glass, and metal packages, which allows for reduced warehouse space, lower transportation costs, and less waste.
  • Barrier Protection – Our sustainable solutions come in varying degrees of barrier properties, so you can select the best solution for your needs.
  • Diverse Selection – Our packaging comes in a wide variety of formats and shapes. It can also come with various features, like handy open and close features and fitments, for added convenience.
  • Complete Packaging Solution – We offer complete solutions for branding and more eco-friendly product protection.

Our Sustainability Initiatives:

PPT has a solid body of sustainability policies, which we apply in our processes and procedures. Apart from providing packaging, we, too, uphold environmentally safe practices in our facilities.

We focus on:

Product Packaging Innovation, Raw Materials, and Vendor Selection

    • Our product development team creates lightweight packages to replace heavy and rigid options, thereby using fewer resources.
    • We strive to reduce the gauge of films (while preserving product protection and barrier features) to generate less waste.
    • Our supply chain is made up of vendors and suppliers that also uphold sustainability.
    • We conduct continuous research on eco-friendly alternatives and practices.
 

Enhanced Process & Product Technology

    • We invest in equipment that generates low volumes of scrap and maximizes raw materials.
    • Our facilities employ:
      • The Anilox Cleaning System, which allows for more efficient recycling
      • X-Rite Technology, which reduces ink and solvent wastes
      • An Ink Dispensing System that further minimizes ink waste
      • An Ink Cleaning System that further decreases solvent waste
      • A “Work-Off Ink” initiative that further reduces ink waste
    • We utilize a Trim Removal System, which consolidates waste for recycling.

Waste Stream Reduction

Our packaging company’s main sustainability goal is “Zero-Landfill” — the waste we generate should be reusable or recyclable. We achieve this using a two-pronged strategy:

  • Maximum Recycling – We recycle everything we can, including inks, oils, batteries, corrugated paper, and even 55-gallon drums.
  • Alternative Solid Waste Program – We incinerate other types of waste for energy creation.
