Compared to PET bottles and glass containers:
1/ Flexible Beverage Pack’s flat lightweight construction significantly reduces greenhouse gases produced in shipping.
2/ With fewer trucks on the road inbound and outbound savings in transportation costs and petroleum.
3/ Per 100g of product, use of glass containers packaging results in 14 times more landfill material by weight than the flexible Pack. Per 100g of product, flexible Pack presents 93% less packaging weight than glass containers and 39% less packaging weight than PET bottles.
4/ Flexible Pack presents a 17:1 product-to-package advantage over glass containers and 10:1 product-to-package advantage over PET bottles.
5/ The Flexible Pack is made from an outer layer of polyester that is reverse printed. This material is then laminated to a thin aluminum sheet to achieve barrier properties. The inside layer is polyethylene which is used to seal the pouch together.
6/ Zero Landfill: Beverage pouch also touts the "Zero landfill" environmental advantages of the package. There's a source-reduction story to tell, as the pouch takes up far less space than a bottle, weighs 20 times less than a bottle with comparable volume, uses far less energy to make, and has a lower CO2 footprint than a bottle. In some countries, they have garbage incineration in place, such as BPG's home state of Florida, plasma arcing can vaporize the plastic components of the pouch, generating electricity, while collecting the metal left behind. This slag can be used for road construction projects.
Our cap is HDPE and therefore 100% recyclable
Reduced warehouse requirements
Research & development efforts are currently underway to create an additive to make the film environmentally degradable
