Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:24.Dec.2020

Direct Pack Inc., a leader in sustainable, customized and innovative thermoformed packaging for food applications, has shared its new sustainable egg packaging, made with 100% recycled PET material where the containers are also 100% recyclable again.

 

Egg packaging is a new category for Direct Pack, made possible by the combination of the recycled material from Direct Pack Recycling and its innovative Design & Engineering team.

Direct Pack’s sustainable egg packaging contains 100% recycled PET material.


Through Direct Pack Recycling, its reclaiming and reprocessing facility, the company is able to close the loop on PET packaging and using it as an infinite resource. By using post-consumer recycled PET bottles and thermoformed PET packaging as raw material, the company thermoforms new containers that are made with 100% post-consumer content.

 

In addition, some labels can create problems in the recycling stream. Especially paper labels and the wrong glue can stick to the PET packaging and contaminate the clean rPET flake.

 

Direct Pack recommends using wash-away BOPP labels, which easily and fully separate from the packaging during the sink-float process, making it 100% recyclable. The company currently applies BOPP labels inline in its manufacturing.
