Why PCR Packaging?

Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) packaging closes the loop for packaging without compromising recyclability. Customers recognize the environmental benefits of PCR, making it easy for brands to connect with sustainability-minded consumers. PCR uses less water, less energy, and produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than virgin resins, which can help you meet your sustainability goals.
