At PakTech, Every Day is Earth Day

Earth Day is one of our favorite days of the year here at PakTech. You probably already know why, but we’ll always say it loud and proud: We care about the environment. So much so, in fact, that everything we do – every product we design – is built with sustainability at the forefront of the process.

Sustainability Stats

A product with a positive impact on the planet? It’s from PakTech. This isn’t just an alliteration. It’s the reason we exist.


PakTech Product Cycle-1


Customers want sustainability in exchange for brand loyalty.

The cultural climate has undergone a massive shift, with 78% of U.S. consumers noting that a sustainable lifestyle is a critical aspect of how they choose to live. That means it’s more important than ever that brands and businesses build eco-conscious practices into their workflow, to better serve the customers that are looking for corporate sustainability to inform their purchasing decisions.


There isn’t much risk for reward in this category, with products making ESG-related claims contributing to 56% of the growth within specific retail categories over a five-year period, far outperforming products without ESG-related claims.


Consumer Preferences


Meet plastic with an eco-friendly purpose.

It’s not a paradox. It’s what we do at PakTech. Our packaging is made of 100% rHDPE (recycled high-density polyethylene) plastic and is fully recyclable (it’s the same stuff your milk jugs are made from!). That means no new plastic, all 100% rHDPE.


Compared to cardboard alternatives, HDPE is a versatile, strong, lightweight plastic used for everything from containers to piping. We use it at PakTech to make our durable packaging handles and for its eco-friendly features. Plus, it’s non-toxic and food-safe, which means every product packaged with a PakTech handle is assured product quality maintenance.


Measure Impact


Part of the solution, one handle at a time.

Our environmental mission doesn’t stop when our handles are with our customers. We also take extra steps to ensure our packaging solution meets our eco-friendliness standards by implementing a top-tier recycling program here in the United States. In Australia, we’re even APCO assessed and curbside accepted.


PakTech Recycle Program-1


We offer a complementary recycling bin and educational poster to our new PakTech Recycling Program partners, guiding them to connect with reprocessors to repurpose PakTech handles into new products, like new PakTech handles, park benches and planter pots.

The results are tangible, measurable — and earth-friendly.

Not only do we use 100% recycled materials in our handles, but our handles are also the lightest weight option in the beverage packaging space when compared to paperboard. That means that they cause fewer emissions during transportation, significantly lowering the product’s carbon footprint — and, overall, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 78%.



Earth Day is 365 days a year.

That’s what we believe, and that’s why we operate the way that we do. So, if your brand is looking for a quick and seamless way to implement more recycled content into your packaging, we’re always here to help at PakTech.


We can’t wait to see what PakTech handles can do for you and your business.


Happy Earth Month!
