19 Mar AmerSafe® security bags go green
Amerplast’s iconic AmerSafe® security bags have always been known for their excellent quality, high security features and usability. Now we are presenting the next generation of AmerSafe security bags with further improved security features, convenience and sustainability.
The new AmerSafe Eco security bags are made from more than 40% of recycled materials and are recyclable through the existing recycling streams. Recyclability is a key feature of plastic packaging and products that are designed to be recycled and further utilized in line with the circular economy model. In the near future recyclability is one of the requirements set by the EU for plastic packaging and products. Also the use of recycled materials in suitable applications is considered to be highly important in order to decrease the environmental impacts of plastics and to promote the transition towards circular economy.
“Amerplast is committed to develop sustainable solutions for flexible packaging applications as a part of our AmerGreen sustainability program. Our emphasis is on the recyclability and the use of recycled and biobased materials. We have been utilizing recycled raw materials in our production since the beginning of 90s and turning them into highest quality packaging solutions. All our recycled packaging go through various tests to ensure the first class quality. According to our research the use of recycled materials decreases the CO2 emissions and the carbon footprint of the products. Our target is to gradually change all our AmerSafe security bags to AmerSafe Eco concept during 2019”, says Ari-Pekka Pietilä, Amerplast Chief Marketing Officer.
Excellent security features are the core of AmerSafe security bags. We are now presenting a renewed security tape for closing and sealing the bag. The tape cannot be opened without visible evidence of tampering. AmerSafe Eco bags are printed with a wider range of languages which makes the bags easier to use in a larger market area.
Sustainability is and will remain a key requirement for today’s flexible packaging. At Amerplast, we are relentlessly promoting the use of green packaging solutions simply because we think that it is our responsibility as a packaging supplier to constantly search for and bring forward the most environmentally friendly alternatives in materials and technologies for producing high quality packaging solutions.
