Kilgore, TX, June 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Pak-Sher announced today the launch of Envirosheets™, a revolutionary new bakery/deli interfolded sheet that is produced using 100% PCR (post-consumer recycled plastic), meets FDA guidelines for direct food contact, and is manufactured and packaged at the Pak-Sher plant in Kilgore, TX. The only product of its kind in the world, Envirosheets are 100% made from recycled milk jugs. Pak-Sher credits their unique film manufacturing process for their ability to create a reliable and inexpensive 100% PCR product. In fact, this product is less expensive than the wax or paper sheets that are prevalent in the current market.
“This product will be a game changer,” said Paul Gage, President and CEO of Pak-Sher. “Finally, supermarkets, delis, bakeries, and convenience stores have a truly green product that will help them achieve their sustainability goals AND can improve their bottom line. Until now, that was a fantasy in the packaging world, but we’ve turned fantasy into reality!”
Envirosheets provide the same benefits as virgin poly sheets: moisture barrier, microwavable, easy-grab interfolded packaging, and more cost effective than paper or wax, with the added benefit of sustainability. Every case of Envirosheets uses 8 - 19 (depending on sheet size) recycled milk jugs that might otherwise have ended up in our landfills. Envirosheets are just the first in a line of maximized PCR content products Pak-Sher plans to offer. They plan to continue to bring more sustainable AND economical products to market in the coming year.
