utilize single-material packaging

Do you utilize single-material packaging?

Single material means the whole package consists of only one material. When it comes to recycling it is important to make it as easy as possible. Remember that the consumer is the sorter and choosing a single material option eliminates the separation process, allowing for a simpler recycling experience.

Material selection also plays a crucial role in the success of single-material packaging. Not all plastics undergo the same recycling processes, leading some to have a higher likelihood of ending up in landfills. PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) stands out as the most globally recycled plastic, finding applications in various industries. In addition to its recyclability, PET also boasts a substantially lower consumption of energy and natural resources during the production process compared to glass.

Choosing a simple but effective package can make the difference between something being recycled or thrown away. At EPOPACK, our emphasis is on simple and sustainable PET packaging solutions.
