A great recyclable alternative

If certain materials and production processes are used, Clear Packaging is a sustainable alternative. By placing the appropriate recycle logos on the packaging, the environmental credentials of the product can be communicated to the customer. This ultimately encourages the growth and recycling and reuse of plastic products.

Adding the appropriate recycle logo to the packaging can be done by printing or embossing. This ensures the product is directed to the correct recycling stream.

Green and Clean

Clear-pak Australia has implemented and Environmental Policy, guided by AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004 (Australian & New Zealand Environmental Standard).

Most materials used in the manufacture of our products are 100% recyclable (if printed or embossed with the appropriate recycle logo). All production processes are energy efficient and all factory waste is recycled using approved waste recycling streams. Clear-pak continually assesses any impact on the environment and improves processes accordingly.
