Circularity
Forming a Better Future

While plastic packaging is significantly better for the environment than most alternatives, we have to do our part to reduce the amount of waste it generates. At Plastic Ingenuity, our circularity experts work with you to design recyclable packages at a lower carbon footprint, customized for your specific needs.

Our Circularity Services

We offer a range of services that can be tailored to meet your company’s circularity initiatives.

Sustainable Packaging Assessment

We work with you to define your sustainable packaging goals, assess where you are today, and create an actionable roadmap with clear next steps.

Life Cycle Analysis

Together, we’ll discuss design and material choices, analyzing the impact different options have on the environment.

Recyclability Consulting

We’re well-versed in The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) guidelines. We’ll take these guidelines into consideration while helping you design for recycling systems and the needs of your users.

Take Back Programs

Take Back programs collect used products and materials and introduce them into the original processing and manufacturing cycle. We can analyze and advise on aspects of your Take Back program to ensure that we are doing what’s best for the planet.

The Power of Plastic

Plastic plays a vital role in helping us combat climate change. Not only does it contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions in production and transport, it also helps reduce food waste and spoilage, further reducing our carbon footprint during its life cycle. Independent studies consistently find plastics to have a lower carbon footprint than alternative forms of packaging.

  • Lower GHG Emissions

    Plastic packaging enables manufacturers to do more with less material than alternative packaging sources which results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Reduce Food Waste

    When fresh goods are packaged in plastic, even in cases where the packaging is not recycled, they produce a smaller environmental footprint than their unpackaged counterparts.

  • Protect Against Contamination

    The right plastic packaging design helps prevent food spoilage and cross-food contamination by creating a strong barrier against outside elements.
