Poly Packaging Eco Saving Calculator

Why choose recycled packaging from EcoEnclose?

Recycled packaging options save natural resources, reduce water consumption, and release fewer greenhouse gases into the atmosphere when compared to virgin counterparts. We've developed this Sustainability Savings Calculator to help you quantify your impact on the planet by choosing recycled packaging instead of virgin packaging.

How To Use

Select the packaging product and input the number of units to measure. The tool will then output:

  1. Resources used, greenhouse gases emitted, energy consumed and water consumed to produce 100% virgin versions of your selected packaging
  2. The same stats to produce EcoEnclose's recycled versions of your selected packaging
  3. Your sustainability savings by choosing EcoEnclose packaging - raw materials saved, reduction in carbon emissions, energy saved, water saved, etc.
Please be sure to reset the calculator each time you want to run a new scenario.

We recognize that resource estimates like these utilize a lot of assumptions, and that these assumptions are often debated. This calculator is linked directly to the latest data provided by the GaBi Envision by Sphera. Find more information at the bottom of this page.

Sources and Methodology

This plastics calculator utilizes impact data from the LCA software GaBi Envision by Sphera to assess the average carbon, oil, energy, and water footprint of a set volume of polyethylene. EcoEnclose uses several approaches and tools to produce preliminary calculations of our packaging solutions' environmental impact and savings to help our EcoAllies make more informed decisions about their optimal packaging strategy.
