Improving recyclable pouch packaging solutions for a circular economy

The Clear One Pouch from the front - Designed for Recycling by ALPLA

The pouch as a resealable packaging solution

Designing for recycling when developing or improving packaging solutions is a critical factor of success on the journey to a circular economy. Although the requirements are demanding, design for recycling does not have to be like fitting a round peg in a square hole. Our latest innovation, The Clear One, reflects our dedication to the circular economy. The plastic pouch we have designed is easy to recycle and sets a new standard for resealable packaging thanks to its exceptionally lightweight 100% recyclable PET or rPET construction.
