Is Flexible Packaging Right for You?

Question mark

When thinking about packaging and its related environmental impacts, there is more than just end-life to consider…


How was this made?


How much water did it use?


How much electricity did it use?


How was it transported?


How many materials are involved?


How heavy are the inputs and the finished product?

These are some of the many questions that consumers are asking about the products they're buying.

When our sustainable options just aren't quite the right fit, rest assured that you're still making a difference simply by choosing Rootree™ Flexible Packaging.

The conventional packaging we manufacture is considered code #7 “other” recycling. Due to the multi-layer structure of code #7 recycling, it is frequently considered non-recyclable in Canadian waste management facilities.Fortunately, there are innovative companies that are focused on recycling the non-recyclable.
