When considering the environment most people forget to look at the big picture and focus simply on the packaging itself. As flexible packaging manufacturers we would like to point out that the packaging to product ratio is the lowest among all packaging formats. Rollstock and pouches are lightweight and have a small shipping footprint. Along with our already green offerings, we do provide biodegradable/ compostable options as part of our environmental solutions.
It is our goal to produce packaging that helps the environment in many ways, predominantly to extend the shelf life of product so that waste is minimized in the market without ever compromising food safety. We are constantly reviewing alternative material technologies. As the flexible packaging industry grows, more options are becoming available. We are environmentally conscious and our 100,000 square foot facility has many eco friendly processes implemented from our lighting to our recycling programs.
To meet the needs of customers working with green, organic and environmentally sensitive brands, Tempo Plastics introduced FlexTera, a 100% compostable ASTM D6400 compliant flexible packaging solution.
Silver winner of the 2015 PAC Global Leadership Award for Sustainable Packaging. Tempo Plastics developed a recyclable pouch to allow for safe entry into the recycling stream.
