Benefits of Flexible Packaging

For more than 50 years, the flexible packaging industry has been committed to creating innovative, sustainable packaging. A sustainable package takes into consideration all aspects of the triple bottom line (financial, social, environmental) and each stage of a package’s life cycle, including raw materials, production processes, transportation, functionality, end-of-use options, and the  ustainability of the product being packaged.

Less Resources. Less Footprint. More Value.

Less Waste in the First Place

The life cycle attributes of flexible packaging demonstrate many advantages across numerous packaging applications. Flexible packaging starts with less waste in the first place, greatly reducing landfill discards.

Innovation and technology have enabled flexible packaging manufacturers to use fewer natural resources in the creation of their packaging, and improvements in production processes have reduced water and energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and volatile organic compounds.

Even more, lighter-weight flexible packaging results in less transportation-related energy and  ossil fuel consumption and environmental pollution.

For today’s needs – and tomorrow’s – flexible packaging is a wise choice.

Enhancing the quality of life

Consider the many ways flexible packaging enhances our quality of life: Flexible packaging increases free time by facilitating easy-toprepare and microwavable meals. It provides peace of mind through innovative materials that help assure freshness and safety in the items we buy.

It reduces the weight of the contents in our shopping bags, as well as the amount of household packaging waste (and landfill consumption). Further, flexible packaging offers very high BTU fuel content for communities where waste-to-energy programs are available, reducing dependency on other energy resources.

These facts, plus the environmental considerations mentioned previously, make flexible packaging a true friend in your home and community.

Efficiencies reduce Waste & Cost

The concept of sustainability recognizes the importance of a thriving economy. Flexible packaging proves its worth and its value for businesses, as well as consumers and the environment. With flexible packaging, converters, manufacturers, shippers, and warehouse personnel gain more cost-efficient production and handling.

Retailers benefit from tighter, more eye-catching shelves, with products delivering longer shelf life. Transparent collation films reduce the need and cost of printing on secondary packaging and efficiently combine shipping and retail packaging reducing back-ofstore waste.

More value with less packaging – that’s what the innovations of flexible packaging consistently deliver in the drive for sustainability.
