Happy America Recycles Day! It’s a national event recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to educate our consumers about the importance of recycling to our environment and motivate them to become better recyclers. Though today is recycling day, recycling is not a one-time thing, rather it’s an attitude and lifestyle that everyone should have embrace.
As a leader in innovative, customized, and sustainable thermoformed packaging, we are continuously improving sustainability and refining our processes. We respect people and the planet and we take our responsibility seriously.
To increase the recycling rate of thermoformed packaging, we have taken the matter into hand and operated your own recycling center, Direct Pack Recycling to allow us to move closer to a full circle manufacturing process. We’ve partnered with North American Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) to source bales of post-consumer recycled PET bottles and thermoformed containers and turned them into brand new food-safe packaging. Watch our Direct Pack Recycling Full Circle Recycling video to learn more about the process.
Since 2020, we have recycled over 38.9 million pounds of post-consumer PET plastics that is equivalent to 765,568,676 recycled PET bottles and 25,143,326 recycled PET thermoformed containers.
