Smart Planet Technologies, a packaging technology company with innovations in packaging materials engineered for recyclability, has joined the growing How2Recycle Label program.
Smart Planet Technologies and its clients will use the label on select paperboard packaging made using EarthCoating® technology. EarthCoating is a mineralized resin that functions as a barrier coating for various paperboard packaging types. In addition, Smart Planet Technologies will be an advocate for the How2Recycle program among its clients as well as a partner in industry efforts to increase both understanding of access as well as technical recyclability of all types of paperboard packaging.
“We appreciate Smart Planet’s support to encourage the use of the How2Recycle Label,” says Anne Bedarf, senior manager of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. “As a new SPC and How2Recycle member, Smart Planet Technologies brings additional focus to SPC work in the area of packaging recyclability.”
“Smart Planet Technologies is delighted to partner with GreenBlue and to support the use of the How2Recycle Label in the packaging industry,” says Will Lorenzi, President of Smart Planet Technologies. “It is important to provide package recycling information and instructions to the consumer. It is also important to consider recyclability in the design of the package.”
