Welcome to the Best

The most exciting thing in the industry is more and more people start talking about Eco-Friendly options! We also want to share with you about all the innovations and new technologies available that can make our planet a better place. Flexible pouches may seem like a simple and thin object, but they are usually laminated by multiple layers and plastic sheets like PET, PE, CPP, VMPET, etc. Each layer functions as unique protection barriers to isolate your products from all sorts of contamination

Here are the major  material options available on the market:

  • Standard Multi-layer Plastic Pouches (Not Biodegradable, Not Recyclable).
  • Kraft paper laminated with Plastic Pouches (Partial Biodegradable).
  • Kraft Paper with PLA Pouches (100% Biodegradable).
  • PE/EVOH Pouches (100% Recyclable).
Biodegradable refers to the ability of materials to break down and return to nature. The current available biodegradable material in the market is Kraft paper and PLA film. PLA film and biodegradable zipper are made from corn stalks and starches. However, if the bag can decompose in a relatively short period,  it means the material is active, with a loose molecule structure and easy to break up.  In other words, Oxygen and Vapour can get through quickly. Its barrier property is no match to fully chemical-coated plastic films.  You have to consider your products’ shelf life and consumption methods before you choose to go 100% biodegradable.

EVOH stands for Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer. It is a flexible, crystal clear, glossy thermoplastic copolymer. It is commonly used as an excellent oxygen barrier in food packaging. It is oil/solvent resistant, flexible, recyclable, and printable. Our recyclable packagings could prolong shelf life, protects nutrients against bacteria. It reduces the need for preservatives or even avoids them entirely. Unlike many plastics, EVOH does not contain chlorine, dioxins, metals or other elements that may cause endocrinological disorders. EVOH is environmentally friendly because it will not produce any toxic or harmful gases when incinerated. It means that, even when some of the consumers failed to recycle the package, it will minimize the burden of our environment.

..There is no such thing as ‘away’. When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”

Make recycling easier for your customer. Complete the cycle with your products.

Since 2018, most Asian countries stopped accepting waste exported from Australia, our nation’s recycling system has been exploring innovative ways to dispose of and recycle the waste in order to reduce the amount of plastic that goes into landfill. However, there is still a lot of things to improve. For example, the soft plastic recycling is still not a mature system yet. Compare to the common yellow bins for hard plastic,  the extra effort of collecting and bringing the soft plastic to the drop-off point severely decreases the recycling rate. In addition, if your package requires the consumer to do extra steps such as “rinse, remove, cut off, etc”, it also results in the decrease of recycling rate.

Our 100% recycling package is designed with the goal to increase the recycling rate as much as possible. If the kerbside accepts soft plastics then our consumer can dispose of it as normal. If the kerbside does not accept soft plastics and the customer wants to bring it to the drop-off point, they don’t need to do anything before throwing. The whole package is recyclable, including the zipper and valve.

Make recycling easier for your customer, increase the rate by minimizing the steps before disposing of the package.
