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:
- Resources used, greenhouse gases emitted, energy consumed and water consumed to produce 100% virgin versions of your selected packaging
- The same stats to produce EcoEnclose's recycled versions of your selected packaging
- Your sustainability savings by choosing EcoEnclose packaging - raw materials saved, reduction in carbon emissions, energy saved, water saved, etc.
We recognize that resource estimates like these utilize many assumptions, and these assumptions are often debated. This calculator leverages public data sources - including the US EPA, Stanford Magazine, Centre for Environmental Sciences Data, and the Argonne National Laboratory- that have assessed the average carbon, oil, and energy footprint of a set volume of polyethylene.
