Sonoco Adds Recyclable Flexible Packaging to Sustainable Packaging Portfolio
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.
“We are very pleased to introduce EnviroFlex PE as the latest addition to our diverse portfolio of EnviroSense packaging options,” said
EnviroFlex PE joins Sonoco’s expanding assortment of EnviroSense™ sustainable packaging solutions. As shoppers become more aware of the environmental impacts associated with their purchases, the demand for sustainable products and recyclable packaging continues to increase. According to Mintel, close to 40% of consumer product choices are influenced by a product’s ethical, environmental and social attributes. Recognizing the critical importance of protecting our planet for future generations, EnviroSense represents Sonoco’s guiding philosophy behind a new portfolio of packaging solutions designed to meet a rigorous set of sustainability criteria.
To meet EnviroSense standards, Sonoco considers multiple attributes related to sustainability. In addition to meeting the requirements for carrying a recycling label in accordance with ISO14021 and FTC regulations, EnviroFlex PE also meets the EnviroSense standard for packaging optimization requiring materials not exceed the weight and/or volume requirements of the product being packaged.
