NOW Plastics is now offering a wide range of films and packaging solutions that take into account environmental concerns, reflecting changes in consumer tastes for recyclable and environmentally friendly products.

“The efficient and responsible use of plastics and packaging has become a critical consideration for companies throughout the packaging value chain. NOW Plastics has adopted a strategic focus on eco-friendly and sustainable packaging solutions that do not compromise the shelf life of packaged food, since food waste is also an important social and economic concern,” says company CEO Larry Silverstein. “We will continue to develop a wide range of plastic substrates and packaging solutions that take into account environmental, social and economic factors. We are committed to protecting the environment and at the same time to restoring the good name of plastics, which are not mutually exclusive.”

NOW Plastics’ current eco-friendly product portfolio comprises a huge array of packaging solutions in the following categories:

  • Post-Consumer Recycled content (PCR) films (PET, BOPA, PE, etc.)
  • Film structures for making packaging recyclable
  • Bio-based/sustainable sources for raw materials/resins
  • Biodegradable plastics
  • Compostable substrates and packaging options
