Polysack collaborates with HP Indigo
Polysack, a leading sustainable developer and manufacturer of fully-recyclable plastic packaging films for high-shrink labels, is partnering with HP Indigo to validate its fully-recyclable packaging films for printing on HP Indigo digital presses.
The collaboration will allow businesses to create recyclable packaging, combining Polysack’s 100% recyclable film with HP Indigo’s printing capabilities.
According to recent data from NielsenIQ, 66% of people globally are becoming more environmentally conscious and turning towards sustainable products with environmentally-friendly packaging. Typical label printers produce between 85% and 90% of landfill-derived waste from their matrix label waste, providing a perfect opportunity for brands to choose sustainable labels, making a big difference to the environment, and attracting consumers.
Polysack demonstrates its commitment to protecting the environment, with its films that produce a true 100% mono-material flexible packaging, making the product fully recyclable. This type of film can replace 70-80% of unrecyclable plastic with fully recyclable packaging without increasing costs, modifying people’s usage habits, or needing to rebuild the infrastructure for the package production.
Polysack enables brands to produce fully-recyclable plastic packaging including stand-up pouches, films, and shrink labels by providing its fully recyclable Pack’N’Cycle plastic film to packaging manufacturers.
Plastic waste is a global concern uniting more than 500 organisations under the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. Now, many businesses have agreed to move to 100%-recyclable plastic packaging by 2025. Today, only 9% of all plastic is actually recycled. The rest ends up in landfills, rivers, sewer systems, and alike. As much as 8,000,000 of plastic ends up in our oceans, making up 80% of all marine waste. Even most “recyclable” plastic is not actually recycled or fully recyclable. Polysack’s plastic film, however, is 100% recyclable and helps reduce plastic waste.
Today, Pack’N’Cycle recyclable films are sold to companies serving 45% of the European plastic flexible packaging market, chosen by more than 130 recyclable packaging projects. Recyclable packing produced with Pack’N’Cycle recyclable films can also be found on supermarkets, convenience stores, and gas station shelves worldwide.
“The ability to combine our 100%-recyclable film with HP Indigo’s printing capabilities allows businesses to create packaging that fits their brand while remaining environmentally conscious,” said Polysack CEO Yanir Aharonson. “Plastic waste is a major environmental problem, and we’re glad to help make the world a bit more green.”
