As an environmentally conscious manufacturer, Pakaflex is working to assist industry in the environmentally friendly recycling of plastic waste materials, helping the environment, reducing landfill, contributing to individual companies' abilities to meet their triple bottom line responsibilities and the national packaging covenant. We also aim to be good members of the local community, and are keen to assist the industry in achieving sustainable solutions for the future. At Pakaflex we follow the guidelines of “Reduce, re-use and recycle”. As most of our products are used for packaging, re-use is generally difficult so we are mostly focused on the Reduce and Recycle components.
Pakaflex does not manufacture high density "check-out" bags. Where required we can manufacture carry bags and other compostable bags made from Mater-Bi corn starch which are completely degradable.
To help the environment we:
Reduce: Minimise the amount of material used. By using tougher polymers we can often reduce the thickness of the films by up to 30%. This provides cost savings too.
Recycle: Pakaflex already not only recycles all its own scrap, but also takes post external industrial scrap and reprocesses it to first grade polymer to make into (non-food contact) film products.
