Custom-Pak is moving towards a circular economy where plastics never become waste, by 2025. It sounds like a big goal but it’s more than just good intentions, we’ve declared our commitment in the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment report published by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and we’re already well on the way.
As plastic packaging has entered a new era where recycling, litter and carbon emissions matter more than ever before, we’ve embraced the opportunity to become more responsible environmental stewards through our role as a plastic packaging supplier.
Wherever possible, our products are voluntarily made from 100% recycled PET (RPET) and designed to be fully recyclable. We encourage our customers to opt for clear packaging if possible, which reduces the need for virgin resin and ensures that the containers can be recycled here in New Zealand.
We are also proud members of Plastics New Zealand and actively support the industry’s initiatives around reducing carbon footprint and increasing recycling towards our circular economy mission.
