Not only is our polyester strapping green... so is our company!
Polychem's polyester strapping is made from 100% recycled polyester (RPET), with 60% or more post-consumer content.* Strap cores are made from a minimum of 92% recycle content and are reusable and fully recyclable.
Polyester strapping is a recycle product. With Polychem's wholly owned subsidiary, Evergreen Plastics LTD.®, we are vertically integrated and by using RPET resin, Polychem can produce strapping that:
- Requires less energy use
- Produces less greenhouse gas emissions
- Make us less dependant on foreign oil
- Saves land fill space
- Provides a better value product for our customers
- Can be recycled again
About 25% of Polychem's Polyester strapping is chopped and returned to close the loop.
We recycle over 95 million pounds of PET beverage bottles at Evergreen Plastics every year.
