With consumers becoming progressively environmentally conscious throughout each buying stage, there is a growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions. Pregis’ HC Renew PCR is an inside-the-box shipping solution that meets this need by providing the same level of protection and durability as traditional air cushions while reducing the environmental impact.
HC Renew PCR reduces carbon emissions by 40%, fossil fuel usage by 65%, and water usage by 70% compared to cushioning film made with virgin resin, according to a life cycle analysis. The analysis considers product lifecycle phases, including materials, manufacturing, and end-of-life.
HC Renew PCR is printed with 80% PCR messaging and a How2Recycle store drop-off label that provides clear instructions on how end users can dispose of it properly. By reducing landfill waste and promoting responsible recycling practices, HC Renew PCR enables individuals and businesses at every step in the supply chain to make more sustainable choices.
Suitable for cushioning and wrapping applications, HC Renew PCR is compatible with AirSpeed Ascent. The high-pressure on-demand system produces HC patented square-pattern hybrid cushioning, providing more surface area to absorb shock and vibration during transit. The film’s exceptional product protection and durability make it an ideal choice for various markets, including e-commerce retail, 3PL, home goods, beauty and cosmetics, electronics, and nutraceuticals.
