Our Environmental Impact

There are a lot of houses, but we all share one home: EARTH! We honestly, sincerely, stubbornly feel a responsibility to reduce our individual and collective impact on the global environment.

All of us at PakTech are dedicated to protecting our planet and our environment. Transforming recycled plastic into recyclable products animates our mission and sets us aside from our competition. We believe that using 100% post-consumer recycled resin that is also 100% recyclable is part of the solution because it reduces the amount of new plastic that is being manufactured. Handles manufactured with recycled resin are the right product for our clients to use, for consumers to choose, and for our planet. This is full circle sustainability. Low impact, mean, clean, and green. In action and on a massive scale.
 
 
 
 
What is PCR?
 
 
 

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.

 
 
 
 
 
100% Recyclable
 
 
 

PakTech handles are made from discarded milk jugs, which are recyclable at most curbside pickups or at any recycling facility that recycles 'rigid plastics'. If your local facility does not recycle rigid plastics - let them know you want it.
