Sonoco announced the introduction of EnviroFlex™ PE recyclable polyethylene flexible packaging. Designed to meet the needs of a variety of retail products, EnviroFlex PE is eligible to use the How2Recycle® Store Drop-Off label, which means it can be dropped off (clean and dry) at local retail stores for recycling with grocery bags. A project of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition® (SPC), How2Recycle is a standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public in accordance with Federal Trade Commission Green Guides. Available in a range of barrier options and capable of incorporating zipper closures, EnviroFlex PE is suitable for a variety of products, including cookies and crackers, confections, dry/dehydrated foods, sweet and savory snacks, pet food and treats, personal care items and more. EnviroFlex PE laminates can be run on both vertical and horizontal form fill and seal machines and are also available as premade pouches.
