PCR stands for Post-Consumer Recycled. 100% Post Consumer Natural HDPE #2 is recycled thermoplastic, which includes milk jugs water jugs, juice containers, and other un-pigmented household containers. PakTech utilizes PCR resin in the production of their injection molded handles.
In 2017, PakTech kept 81,378,872 gallon sized jugs out of the landfill by using PCR material.
PCR production uses 90% less energy, 100% less petroleum, and offsets enough greenhouse gasses to equal 1,615 fewer cars on the road and 2,619,787 gallons of gasoline every year vs. virgin plastic production.
