The first of these is a range of wash-off film labeling solutions that make it easier, during the caustic washing process that is central to the recycling of PET, to separate polypropylene labels from clean PET flake. The key to this concept is UPM Raflatac’s RW85C wash-off adhesive. The clear, white, or metallized film label stocks score additional sustainability points because their release liners are made from 90 percent post-consumer recycled content. According to UPM Raflatac, the labels have been recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) as exceeding APR’s strict standards for recyclable label products.

Innovation not just for innovation’s sake, but driven by unmet consumer and industry needs: That was the inspiration behind Garçon Wines’ Flat Wine Bottle for e-commerce, a uniquely shaped wine bottle that easily slides through the rectangular letterboxes found in the doors of U.K. consumers and businesses. For its ingenuity, this “flattened” 750-cL PET bottle, which not only facilitates the delivery of wine packages, but also features a number of notable sustainability improvements over round glass bottles, was recognized by Dow as a Diamond finalist in its 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation.

Clean food has been making its way onto menus for more than a decade, and as more and more consumers demand transparency around what they’re eating, some are beginning to look more critically at the safety of the packaging their food comes in. While individual chemicals have come under scrutiny, neither consumers nor the packaging industry have called for or developed a holistic approach to packaging designed to satisfy this new appetite for transparency. Professional networks like the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) have published documents to provide guidance in this space, however, no one standard or approach has been endorsed universally within the industry. Therefore, the responsibility will rest upon individual companies to address this emerging topic.
