Is Flexible Packaging Right for You?
When thinking about packaging and its related environmental impacts, there is more than just end-life to consider…
How was this made?
How much water did it use?
How much electricity did it use?
How was it transported?
How many materials are involved?
How heavy are the inputs and the finished product?
When our sustainable options just aren't quite the right fit, rest assured that you're still making a difference simply by choosing Rootree™ Flexible Packaging.
