For all types of businesses across the globe, sustainability has become an important component for success. It is increasingly common for companies to include sustainability efforts in their strategic plan. Are you including a sustainability component in your company’s growth plan?
More and more, consumers are eager to purchase pharmaceutical, vitamin, supplement, and cannabis products that are packaged thoughtfully, with the environment in mind. If you are using or thinking about using plastic bottles and closures for your product packaging, you now have options that reduce the carbon footprint of your product or are produced from sustainable and/or renewable resources. Incorporating sustainable elements into your packaging is not only good for the environment, but it may also be good for your brand.
At Drug Plastics, we take sustainability seriously and are striving to eliminate unnecessary processes that negatively affect our carbon footprint and are taking steps now to help ensure a sustainable future for our planet. Our planet-friendly options include HDPE Bioresin manufactured with sustainably-sourced resin from sugarcane. HDPE Bioresin exhibits the same chemical and physical properties as conventional HDPE and has the same physical appearance as HDPE derived from fossil fuels, and its FDA approved. Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) PET is also available. PCR PET resin is derived from 100% recyclable post-consumer material, is also FDA approved for food contact, and the material can be reused over and over.
We also offer the following options to help you reduce your company’s carbon footprint:
- Source reduction/right weighting

We invite you to explore our planet-friendly packaging options and join us in our efforts to help save the environment for future generations.
