Recyclable Material for Resealable Packaging
VerdeSeal is a recyclable, proprietary pressure sensitive tape technology with FDA food compliance, applicable to Sealstrip’s easy open and resealable product lines. The recyclable material produces our same consumer-loved convenience features and no loss in operational efficiency - with the added sustainability benefit.
Utilizing recyclable polyethylene (PE) based films, VerdeSeal meets the content requirements for the How2Recycle “Store Drop-Off” label. The How2Recycle program has become the standard for brands who want their packaging to be recycled and are empowering consumers through smart packaging labels. Currently, How2Recycle’s Store Drop-Off is the only recycling option for flexible packaging at scale.
Additionally, brand owners are looking to introduce uniform compositional packaging structures whenever possible ahead of the MacArthur Foundation & Global 2025 and 2030 initiatives.
PE is viewed as a long-term sustainable package film choice:
- Recycle streams for flexible packaging are being actively developed by large brand owners and PE producers (Dow, Nova, Lyondell)
- Multiple investments in flexible packaging recycling and sorting facilities & pilot programs are increasing
- New re-use markets are being developed (asphalt, concrete, building products)
- Recycle-grade PE resin innovation pipeline is growing
In addition to recyclability, VerdeSeal was found to have the ability to produce a significant reduction in carbon footprint when compared to conventional reseal adhesive technologies.
VerdeSeal is available now for Sealstrip’s resealable product lines- Peel&Seal, FreshPak, Sealstrip, and SealAcross - ideal for a variety of applications, such as baked goods, refrigerated or frozen foods, snacks and candy, fresh produce, tortillas, shelf stable foods, pet food, personal care and more!
