Waste2Wear wins award for sustainbale packaging
Waste2Wear is delighted to win the 2022 Packaging Association of Canada (PAC) Packaging Innovation Award of Distinction for their recycled polypropylene (RPP) bags.This prestigious award was earned in recognition of their totally traceable bags made from recycled polypropylene (RPP) for a variety of glocal brands including Mars and M&Ms by ASL, Lululemon, Gym + Coffee, SNIB and many more.
The awards were judged by 25 leaders in the industry including representatives from Colgate-Palmolive and Amcor Flexibles. They chose the Waste2Wear bags for their innovative sustainable design. The RPP bags are made from post-consumer domestic appliances such a fridges. The process involves taking the appliances to the recycling centre and separating the metals and other parts from the plastic. All useable parts are recycled. The plastic gets shredded, made into pellets and further processed to make woven and non-woven fabrics. These fabrics make ideal shopping bags as they are strong (average weight tested to hold 15kg) durable and recyclable. Waste2Wear is truly honoured to be among other high calibre winners being recognised at industry level for making a positive environmental difference for their clients with this sustainable packaging design.
