What Is Recyclable Packaging?

Recyclable packaging is packaging that is manufactured using materials that can be re-used, usually after processing.

Mono-material

Our recyclable packaging is manufactured using a mono-material (single plastic material), which allows for easier recyclability of the packaging.

Recyclable vs Recycled vs Compostable

When our clients enquire about our sustainable packaging solutions, our first recommendation is recyclable packaging. When we use recyclable packaging, we can reuse and re-purpose packaging materials instead of throwing them away, whereas compostable and biodegradable packaging are for single use only. Recyclable packaging is manufactured using materials that protect and extend the shelf life of products, and in addition to this, recyclable packaging can be applicable to various markets, whereas recycled packaging is only applicable to non-food markets, and compostable and biodegradable packaging is manufactured using materials that are designed to break down over time, which can compromise the quality of certain products, therefore application is limited.
