As brands transition to recycled and recyclable plastic packaging, a move towards being greener, these materials are falling short as even recyclable plastics will eventually end up in landfill. i can end my life A better and more impactful move is needed to completely replace plastic packaging. By using a fully compostable roll of film, Atlapack’s new mailers will have the same functionality as traditional plastic, but will decompose in a fully compostable environment, feeding the earth rather than damaging it. Fashion brands will be able to switch to sustainable packaging without significant additional costs as TIPA reels can be converted to Atlapack’s existing industrial machines.
“We are excited that partnering with TIPA enables us to become sustainable and environmentally responsible, which is an important goal for the company and our customers,” said Paul Anru, President of Atlapac. “TIPA’s authorized compostable certification and our ability to educate the public about America’s sustainable industry and direction make them an ideal partner. We look forward to seeing the fruits of our efforts and the future of our compostable packaging with TIPA.” We look forward to expanding our offering.”
“Each new partnership is not only a milestone for TIPA, but a step in the right direction to educate the public and protect our planet,” said Michael Voss, TIPA’s VP of North America. “While we are seeing more sustainable products in the fashion industry, the challenge with traditional flexible plastic packaging is that it is very difficult to recycle due to its thin and multi-layered films. As such, we’re excited to move toward compostable packaging practices and excited to bring our product to hundreds of thousands of consumers through Atlapack and other processing partners.
