FlexPack Facts: Flexible Packaging for a Sustainable Future

Are you a steward of the environment? Then you will love this FlexPack fact!

According to a study conducted by the Flexible Packaging Association, when assessing sustainability, examining the full life cycle of a package is critical. Flexible packaging is the optimum environmental choice – using fewer resources, generating fewer emissions and creating less waste in the first place®.

At its core, flexible packaging works to package the greatest amount of product in the least amount of packaging possible. This efficient product-to-package ratio positively impacts municipal solid waste (MSW) processes, energy use in manufacturing and transportation, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Plus, when compared to other packaging formats, flexible packaging has the potential to promote extended product shelf life and decreased food waste.
