Ensuring we leave the world a better place than how we found it is a top priority at Flexo Converters USA, Inc. Environmental sustainability and responsibility are necessary for future generations to thrive. Our raw materials are composed of recycled materials from paper companies that prioritize forest preservation. We offer three paper types with post-consumer recycled content: Our recycled natural kraft contains 100% PCW, recycled white kraft contains 80% PCW, and our recycled claycoat contains 40% PCW.
Our commitment to sustainability does not stop with our raw materials, it extends to preventing harm to our atmosphere and oceans. We at Flexo Converters USA, Inc. are the first company to always use environmentally friendly inks that are 100% water-based in all of our products, since our inception in 1994. These inks are safer than solvent inks for the environment and for the people who handle them.
We are at the forefront of technology, quality, and conservation, and take our responsibility towards the environment seriously. We are committed to making products sourced from sustainable materials, recyclable or reusable, that have a minimal impact on the environment. We offer a full line of recycled bags and post consumer bags.
In 2015, Flexo Converters is implementing an on-site recycling facility in Meriden, CT to collect and shred all scrap paper to be returned to the paper mills and used in the manufacture of recycled paper. In doing so, Flexo will not only be saving on costs, but will be saving the environment by reusing waste instead of sending it to a landfill.
