Your Premier Source For Plant-Based Film
Reduce | Reuse | Renew
Minimize your packing materials, shipping weight, carbon footprint, and fossil fuel consumption. Eco-Shrink is made from sugarcane, which is harvested using renewable energy and recycled in the same stream as #4 recyclables.
HOW IT'S MADE
Unlike standard polyethylene, our sugarcane resin is extracted from a 100% renewable source. After sugarcane juice has been expelled, you are left with pulp, a waste product usually burned off. Instead, we can ferment and distill this pulp into ethanol; in an ethanol form, we can then dehydrate it to create ethylene to be processed into bio-polyethylene. The sugarcane bagasse is then burned to generate electricity for the manufacturing plant. Learn about our eco-consultations.
Focused on a greener future…
Our research and development team continues to look for new solutions for biodegradable, recycled, and renewably-based resins. We look for materials that are biodegradable in soil, marine, and home composting environments. A closed-loop recycling stream is an ideal solution, which is why we are testing post-industrial and post-consumer resin and repurposing them back into shrink films.
