Eligible films include recyclable Clysar® EVO™ and Clysar® EVO-C™ Confidential films (prequalified for Store Drop-Off by How2Recycle®); and LE Gold, ABL, LTC (Lowest Total Cost), HP Gold, HPG Confidential and ShrinkBox® films.
“This certification is good news for consumer product companies and retailers who have aggressive goals for packaging with recyclable and recycled content, and who seek greater sourcing visibility through third-party verification,” said Christine Grant, Clysar Sustainability Manager.
Now, many polyolefin films from Clysar can either incorporate certified Clysar® ReClaim™ pre-consumer recycled resin and/or are prequalified for the Store Drop-Off label by How2Recycle®, offering more environmentally sound drop-in shrink packaging materials that address the challenges of extended producer responsibility.
Certified Clysar® ReClaim™ PCR Resins are made from polyolefin film materials upcycled from the Clysar manufacturing process. This reclaimed material has not yet reached the consumer or end-user and is diverted on site: an efficient process that allows Clysar to minimize manufacturing waste. Thanks to proprietary technology and rigorous process control, the pre-consumer content films provide the same package appearance, film functionality and performance on the packaging line.
While Clysar has incorporated reprocessed pre-consumer material into its shrink films for many years, independent third-party verification of recycled content has become increasingly important to brand owners and consumers. Working directly with SCS Global, Clysar is able to validate that our resin from reclaimed material is certified pre-consumer content, identified under the Clysar® ReClaim™ brand name.
