Recycle-ready bag-in-box bag

Sustainable solution for bag-in-box

Liquibox flexible packaging that features the new recycle-ready film stands alone in the industry as the ideal solution for liquid products requiring moderate to medium barrier properties—without compromising on sustainability objectives.

Traditional bag-in-box bags for beverages such as post-mix syrup and water are comprised of laminated films using nylon for strength and polyethylene for sealing, but these mixed-material designs pose challenges to recycling. By utilizing our latest ultra-strong, proprietary polyethylene technology, our recycle-ready film no longer requires nylon and can still achieve outstanding performance and durability to protect beverages and other liquid products. Not only does this new monomaterial design eliminate energy-intensive materials and processes, but it is fully compatible with polyethylene recycling streams.

What does recycle-ready mean?

Our new film is recycle-ready as it was designed for collection, sorting and recycling, using end-of-life processes that are commercially available. Recycle-ready packaging is compatible with the flexible recycling streams or store drop-off programs that are currently available.

Recycle-ready refers to the bag-in-box bag. Please contact a Liquibox representative for information on which fitments meet recyclability requirements.
