It’s available in both All PE (recyclable through our Store Drop-Off Program) and with Post-Consumer Recycled Content.

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, compostable packages to replace heavy and rigid options, thereby using fewer resources.
    • We decrease the gauge of films (while preserving product protection 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.
