SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Made from 100% bottle-grade recycled material, aka waste.

Throughout all aspects of development, PakTech focuses on a sustainable approach by preserving the reduce, reuse and recycle format across every business decision. This means that sustainability is not merely a guiding principle but truly underpins the whole production cycle of PakTech packaging solutions.

At PakTech, we believe environmentally friendly manufacturing is the key to a brighter, more sustainable future. By incorporating maximum sustainability into our work culture, business practices, and products, we strive to fulfill our collective responsibility in protecting the environment so it will be there for future generations.

Recycle, Reuse, Repeat

Since 2012, PakTech has repurposed over half a billion gallon-sized milk jugs into new packaging handles, keeping roughly 65 million pounds of the waste stream. Manufacturing our products with 100% recycled and recyclable material generates 78% less greenhouse gases, uses 90% less energy, and reduces virgin petroleum production by 100%. And after they’ve been used, PakTech handles can be recycled again – we’ve partnered with more than 500 businesses to establish dedicated recycling sites, so our handles can live again as park benches, planter pots, and new PakTech products.

BEST IN CLASS MATERIAL

PakTech products are manufactured with high-density polyethylene (HDPE), also known as #2 plastic. This is the same material used to make milk jugs, detergent bottles, and toys. We strongly believe that HDPE is the best raw material for our products, because it’s strong, sturdy, flexible, non-toxic and food safe. It’s also 100% recyclable, and 100% of the HDPE we use comes from recycled material. That’s what makes products the best – not only are they good for consumers, they’re the better choice for the planet as well.
