C-P Flexible Packaging has introduced a new sustainable packaging solution called C-P GreenStream, flexible packaging options that utilize post-consumer recycled content, recyclable materials, compostable materials, downgauged materials and materials derived from renewable sources.
The flexible packages aim to reduce the amount of material entering the waste stream, according to the York, Pa.-based packaging company who’s customers produce shelf-stable foods and cleaning products — many of which produce store brand products.
The C-P GreenStream line includes flexible packaging materials with more than 40% post-consumer recycled resin and is available with up to 100% post-consumer recycled content — without sacrificing barrier performance. It also maintains the same look and feel as flexible packaging sourced from virgin PET resin.
And to address the inability to recycle multilayer film structures composed of dissimilar resins, C-P GreenStream store drop-off recyclable flexible packaging features single-source construction, with all layers made from the same material.
“We are dedicated to creating solutions that align with the goals of our customers,” said Mike Hoffman, chief executive officer, C-P Flexible Packaging. "To achieve our vision of providing packaging with less environmental impact, we developed this C-P GreenStream line of flexible packaging which addresses recyclability, compostability, renewable resources, source reduction and post-consumer recycled content. As a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and the How2Recycle program, we are continually investing in technologies that will minimize our impact on the environment.”
