  • Recycling
  • Energy Conservation

Recycling

Alternative Materials

C-P Flexible Packaging is working with biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA) in flexible packaging and shrink sleeve applications.

Source Reduction

Conversion from 3-ply to 2-ply barrier structures, especially for applications with candy, baked goods and nuts, allows for the overall use of less material.
