What is a stand up pouch?
Stand up pouches are considered a hugely popular choice of durable and flexible packaging solutions thanks to their high barrier composition, along with convenient resealable capabilities, to keep the contents as secure and as fresh as possible between uses, or for on-the-go convenience. They feature a bottom gusset that expands when contents are applied, which allows for the pouches to be stood up tall and proud for convenient and appealing presentation using minimal shelf space.
What are stand up pouches used for?
Stand up pouch packaging is often chosen as a reliable and secure way to store and present a multitude of contents such as, but not limited to, Confectionery, Spices, Protein powders, Health supplements, Snacks, Coffee, Tea, Pet Food, Beauty, Salts, Herbs, Dried fruit, Pasta and Grass seed for example, but can also house larger or bulky objects that need to be contained without rigidity.
Our Recyclable stand up pouches are made with food grade materials therefore are suitable for food contact applications.
Recyclable stand up pouch features
Are stand up pouches eco-friendly?
Not only are stand up pouches environmentally friendly compared to rigid formats due to their low cost production using less raw materials, being lightweight and taking up less room in transit to lower transport costs and carbon emissions, whilst their compact design reduces packaging waste, a recyclable version moves us towards a circular economy.
Recyclable mono-material v’s non-recyclable multi-layer composite
Rightpak Recyclable Stand Up Pouches have been produced using a mono-material making the recycling process much easier at Material Recovery Facilities (MRF), compared to composite materials that contain two or more materials combined, such as polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and metallic polyethylene terephthalate (MPET) that can’t be separated meaning they cannot be recycled as they cannot be remade into that material composition again.
Where can recyclable pouches be recycled?
Our recyclable pouches are marked with a recyclable logo consisting of its resin code 4 for ease of identification. This is a Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) considered a soft plastic such as carrier bags which can be recycled at supermarket store front recycling points and in some home kerbside collections if local authorities allow.
