Designing for circularity

The success of improved recycling access and processing is also contingent on companies like us designing packaging for circularity. Circular packaging design will improve the recovery of materials as they move through the recycling system and increase the use of recycled content to stimulate market demand.

We have the expertise and knowledge to design packaging to meet the How2Recycle labeling program requirements. We have many pre-approved structures that allow you to go to market faster with a recyclable package and demonstrate leadership in sustainability.

Our ASTRA Center is at the core of our operations to deliver on our 2025 commitment and be your sustainability partner. It is a fully integrated, state-of-the-art, research and development center and a turnkey solution for innovative packaging development within a packaging manufacturer.

Choosing to transition from a traditional to a recyclable packaging is choosing to contribute to a better environment. It creates value for plastic waste and contributes to the development of an important end market as recyclable packaging increases availability and quality of post-recycled plastic. In other words, it helps jump-start the establishment of a true circular economy for plastic!
