Laminated plastic barrier films are among the most popular and important materials utilized in the modern world. These materials can enhance shelf life, protect the products for the elements, and reduce weight in transport. But, these same amazing properties make them difficult or near impossible to recycle. Through the use of specific recycle ready materials, your bags and pouches can be recyclable.

At PouchWorth, we have two exciting new recycle-ready materials for making recyclable plastic bags. These materials can be used on both non-printed and custom printed orders. We’ll be with you every step of the way, to help you through the hurdles of developing your desired recyclable plastic bags for your product come to life.

We divide our recyclable bags into two main categories based on their recycling type. Because of the way that standard plastic is non-biodegradable, it is important that as packaging as possible is recycled. It is fundamental to the  global efforts to reducing plastic and solid waste in the environment.

5005 Recycle-Ready: Our “Code 4” material is a recycle-ready biax PE, it has a lower barrier than traditional lamination, but has nice clarity, and can be matte varnished.

5006 Recycle-Ready: “Code 5” cross laminate material with a PP base, it provides higher barrier than our code 4 material and has slightly higher strength. It is available as all matte or all gloss.

Recycling codes vary by jurisdiction; you will need to confirm recyclable with your jurisdiction.
