Are your stand-up pouches recyclable?Last Updated: September 13, 2018
All traditional stand-up pouches are not well-suited for recyclability. This is because most of them are a high-barrier, which is achieved by doing a lamination of multiple layers of different plastic materials. Recycling facilities separate plastics by type and laminated materials make it difficult to separate the types of plastic, thus making the product difficult to recycle.
At ClearBags, we have been striving to find a way to fix that. As of this year, we are one of the first companies to offer a fully compostable stand-up zipper pouch, complete with a compostable PLA zipper. Ask a customer service representative for more details.
