Today, recyclable films and pouches are becoming more and more mainstream. Foreign and domestic pressures, as well as consumers’ demand for more earth-friendly options, are spurring countries to take a look at the issue of waste and recycling and find feasible solutions.
According to statistics, 52% of U.S. food buyers prefer to buy foods with minimal or no packaging to reduce packaging waste. And in a global survey, shoppers are willing to pay more for sustainable products. 38% are willing to pay more for products made with sustainable materials, and 30% are willing to do so for products that deliver on socially responsible claims.
However, common food and beverage pouches are known to be difficult to recycle because most flexible packaging is comprised of multiple layers that are difficult to separate for recycling. Lanker Pack has been exploring eliminating certain layers like foil and PET in the packages to aid in the recyclability. After several years of development, Lanker Pack has succeeded in producing pouches made from recyclable PE-PE films, EVOH film, post-consumer recycled (PCR) resins, and compostable films.
At Lanker Pack, we offer 100% Recyclable PE-PE High Barrier Film and Pouches. Our dry lamination reduces VOC emissions and significantly decrease waste.
