TemperPack's ClimaCell insulated shipper solution received the How2Recycle widely recyclable label designation, becoming the first insulated shipper to bear the industry standard recycling mark.
The work to secure the well-known label represents TemperPack's commitment to offering companies shipping perishable goods in the food and life sciences industries fully curbside recyclable insulation solutions for their shipments with clear disposal instructions.
"Consumers unknowingly recycle things that aren't recyclable and throw things out that should have ended up in their curbside recycling bins," said James McGoff, co-founder and co-CEO of TemperPack, in a statement. "Getting the How2Recycle label will help ensure that anyone who receives a ClimaCell product will know that it can be disposed of alongside the cardboard box or paper bag it came in."
How2Recycle aims to promote recycling by reducing confusion through creating a clear, well-understood and nationally harmonized label that enables companies to convey to consumers how to recycle a package.
The system is a project of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, a membership-based group that brings together business, educational institutions and government agencies to collectively broaden the understanding of packaging sustainability and develop meaningful improvements for packaging solutions.
