Pak-Sher offers a variety of “green” alternatives to help you meet your company’s sustainability goals while keeping within budget.
Direct and Indirect food contact products manufactured in Kilgore, TX can be made with 30% up to 100% Post-Consumer Recycled content (PCR), depending on the product. Finally, customers can go green AND save money. These products are made from recycled milk jugs, and are the best choice for customers looking for an economical product that will meet their sustainability goals.
Many of our carryout bags can be manufactured at 3 mil strength to meet reusable requirements in many municipalities. In fact, our 2.25 mil stock bags meet regulations in most cities.
Fragmentable additive which, under certain conditions, can accelerate degradation, is available for most products.
For those customers sending waste to a local composter, compostable products are available. These products meet ASTM D6400 standard to fully degrade in less than 180 days in an industrial composting facility.
Pak-Sher remains extremely concerned about, and ever-conscious of, our effect on the environment. All non-compostable products are recyclable. Even when manufacturing our core polyethylene product line, we recover 100% of our process waste, reusing most in our own operation and providing the rest to third parties for use in their facilities. We are continually researching and testing new sustainabile resins, including plant-based resins derived from sugar cane.
