Sustainable Solutions
from Laddawn

Looking for a more sustainable solution to your flexible packaging needs? Along with our ongoing commitment as a Green Power Partner to reduce our carbon footprint, Laddawn offers a line of products made from recycled materials. Choose from the most popular sizes of Zip Top Bags, Merchandise Bags, Poly Mailers and Can Liners, all manufactured with a percentage of Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) or Post-Industrial Recycled (PIR) material. This means that a portion of plastic is kept out of landfills and instead reused to create your bag. What’s more – all product is recyclable and Laddawn-made items are manufactured with 100% renewable energy.

Post-Consumer and Post-Industrial Recycled Material:

What’s the difference?

Post-Consumer material comes from waste that has been used by a consumer, disposed of, and diverted from landfills — things like the aluminum cans, plastic bottles and bags, and newspapers that you place in your recycling bin for pick-up.

Post-Industrial material comes from resin that has been processed but not sold as prime material. Instead, it is sold to another party and reground for reuse.

Merchandise Bags made with 25% PCR:

Made from a blend of Low-Density Polyethylene with 25% Post-Consumer Recycled Materials, these are equipped with a handle for easy carry-out applications. Choose from the most popular sizes available with the following features:
