Representing CDF will be Joe Sullivan, President; Tom McCarthy, General Manager; Joe Wanner, Smart Pail Product Manager; Jimmy Pigg, Flexible Packaging Engineer; Iris Thomas, Flexible Packaging Product Manager; Mark Sinn, EZ-Flo Product Manager; and Dave Christian, Jim Gillis, Jayne Handscom and Jake Sullivan, Sales Representatives.

The Smart Pail, a plastic pail replacement system, was developed to offer a more sustainable and cost effective system for transporting semi-viscous, solids and some liquids traditionally shipped in plastic pails. The Smart Pail is a semi-rigid, flexible vacuum-formed plastic liner with a unique wide-mouth laminated peel-reseal lidding film structure offering tamper evidence, easy open-close, excellent oxygen barrier and efficient disposal.

The bag in box liner is the ideal packaging solution for chemical, food, beverage and cosmetic applications ranging in size from 1 liter to 25 liters. CDF offers both form-fit and pillow styles to meet your entire bag in box needs. BIB flexible packaging offers many benefits, such as excellent quality due to superior seam strength and there is no foaming or splashing because the package fills without air.

The EZ-Flo Packaging/Dispensing System is an environment-friendly dispensing alternative to traditional squeeze, pump and spray bottles. The EZ-Flo‘s innovative dispensing system uses patent pending technology to dispense products of various viscosities without the assistance of gravity. The system is cost effective, reducing waste, time and labor, while improving overall productivity.

The Air-Assist® liner allows the user to realize a more complete evacuation of their product. Less residual product is left inside the liner, resulting in savings to the user. Air-Assist liners are specifically designed for high viscosity products.

Pack Expo tradeshows aim to advance the processing and packaging industry around the world. You can expect to find thousands of engaged attendees, interactive education, and the latest technology and innovations in processing, packaging, and pharmaceutical lifecycle solutions.

The How2Recycle Label: Coming to a package near you

With the help of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, GreenBlue has finally created a recycling label that the average consumer will be able to understand. The How2Recycle Label is a straightforward approach to responsible recycling and one that is poised to become a fixture in the plastics packaging world. The program employed a soft launch with brands such as Seventh Generation and Target but also decided to conduct a webinar in order to familiarize consumers with basic features and the program’s importance.

Anne Bedarf, senior manager at GreenBlue, explained that the labels are based on the On-Pack Recycling system, the same program used in the United Kingdom. Companies have the ability to customize each component of their packages using the four available options: Widely Recycled, Limited Recycling/Check Locally, Not Yet Recycled or Store Drop-off. Bedarf added that the How2Recycle Label program does not aim to replace the existing RIC (Resin Identification Code) system but rather, be compatible with it.

GreenBlue has estimated that the How2Recycle Label has been used on more than 100 million packages and is expected to take on several new clients within the near future.
