1. Flexcraft 160oz PET Wide-Mouth Jug

Flexcraft is a leading US manufacturer of both stock and custom bottles and closures for the food & beverage, medical, consumer, personal care, and pet care markets. One of our favorite products from their catalog on Impacked is the 160oz PET Jug, a highly versatile wide-mouth handled jar. Commonly used for packaged foods, this popular item is made from 100% recycled content and is fully recyclable, making it a great alternative to the non-recyclable PVC packaging traditionally used at this size. Flexcraft additionally offers large F-Style Bottles and an HDPE Bottle collection, with sizes ranging from 8oz all the way up to 128oz.

2. Morae Mono-Material Dropper

Likely one of the most innovative items on this list, we were super impressed with Morae’s recently developed mono-material dropper bottle. Why’s that? Conventional droppers are often unrecyclable in practice since they use varied materials- Morae turns this convention on its head with their new single material dropper design, made completely of polypropylene. Conveniently, this mono-material dropper was engineered so that it can be used while still screwed onto a bottle to minimize spillage and leakage from use.

The PaperSnap range is made up of luxury single dose sachets ranging in size from .03oz to .4oz. These eye catching sachets are made with over 85% paper and are recycle-ready for paper bins . In addition to being cost effective and crafted out of bio-based materials, these snap packs allow for effortless one-handed opening that is ideal for convenience while being inclusive of the elderly and those with disabilities.

4. Alltub's "The Green Tube" and Roy AI Caps

Having launched very recently on Impacked, we’ve seen a spike in shopping for Alltub’s Green Tube, a sustainability super-hero made of PCR and PIR aluminum. Without impacting the look or feel of the tube, Alltub has been able to use recycled materials to reduce the CO2 footprint of the tube 50% when compared to tubes made from virgin aluminum. In addition, this tube is compatible with Alltub’s Roy AI cap, an elegant tube top also made from aluminum, leading to additional plastic reduction. This recycle-ready eco-innovation was the recipient of the ETM 2023 Aluminum Tube of the Year, we can’t say we’re too surprised   💁♀️

5. Elk Packaging Compostable 12oz Stand Up Pouch

Beginning with the development and launch of their first fully compostable gusseted stand up pouch back in 2015, Elk Packaging has always been on the forefront of eco-friendly flexible packaging solutions. We’ve always loved flexible packaging because of its material and resource efficiency, but Elk’s 14oz Stand Up Pouch takes sustainability to the next level. This Bio-Based standup pouch is third party lab tested to ASTM D6400 and D6868 standards which verify that the packaging breaks down in commercial compost conditions. Available with various decorations and finishes, this packaging can be used across various industries from beauty and cosmetics to foods and other household products.
