What it is: PCR and recycle-ready flexible film stand up pouches for food, liquids, and more. We are looking for customers interested in 15,000+ eco-friendly pouches.

How you brought it to life: Constantly asking us for an eco-friendlier version of the stand up pouch.

What it is: Carbon-negative, black printing ink whose pigment is made with algae cells.

How you brought it to life: Taking a chance on this ink during R&D. This allowed us to run tests, improve formulations, and get Algae Ink on our paper packaging, poly mailers, and packing tape.

What it is: A 100% recycled, curbside recyclable, naturally biodegradable, and paper-based alternative to the ubiquitous clear poly bag.

How you brought it to life: Constantly asking us how you can eliminate plastic from your inner packaging.

What it is: Durable mailer designed for reuse. Customers receive orders in these mailers and ship them back to be used again...and again.

How you brought it to life: Asking if reusable can be used for eCommerce packaging.  

What it is: An upgraded glassine bag with no gussets, hidden vent slits instead of holes, strong resealable adhesive, and a sleeker design.

How you brought it to life: Sharing very honest feedback on the first version of our glassine bag.

What it is: A program to ensure our customers have access to plastic film recycling to keep their household polyethylene film out of the landfill.

How you brought it to life: Sharing feedback that many of your customers don't have access to thin-film recycling.

What it is: Constantly increasing post-consumer content. Our poly mailers have 50% and our bubble mailers now have 10%.

How you brought it to life: Your collective buying power fuels our ability to push reclaimers and extruders to work with ever-increasing levels of PCW.

What it is: Stickers and shipping labels with 100% recycled, curbside recyclable release liners. Traditional liners are silicone coated, virgin, and landfill-bound.

How you brought it to life: Telling us how much you hated having to landfill these liners! We agreed - what a waste that was!

What it is: A thick, 100% recycled, curbside recyclable mailer for plastic-free brands who want durability and a great customer experience.

How you brought it to life: Letting us know you wanted to ditch plastic, but wanted a thicker, more premium option than our thinner paper mailer.

What it is: A paper-based, curbside recyclable alternative to a clear poly bag. Wrap this 80# Kraft paper around your goods and seal with a sticker to keep them secure in transit or on shelves.

How you brought it to life: Asking us how to replace clear poly bags and being willing to test a paper roll wrap strategy.

What it is: Packaging paper made from recycled content and wheat straw (agricultural waste) - our first investment in next-gen alternatives.

How you brought it to life: Communities like the Responsible Packaging Movement and organizations like Canopy stressed the importance of next gen paper inputs.
