Custom Containers

Our Custom Containers business has a long history of innovation and evolution and has been a technology leader in rigid polymer packaging, especially when it comes to the use of post-consumer-recycled (PCR) and bio resins. Our teams help our customers to reduce the amount of materials in our packaging products, drive recyclability, utilize more recycled content and promote responsible practices like recycling. In support of these activities, we have partnered with organizations like The Recycling Partnership, The Sustainable Packaging Coalition, The Association of Plastic Recyclers, the Packaging Consortium, and many more. We have also joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundations' New Plastics Economy, to support our belief that the future of resin-based packaging includes more resin-based sustainable packaging optionality, higher consumer recycling rates and less total plastic waste in our communities.
