Excel Packaging Teams With Pet Sustainability Coalition
Excel Packaging, an Irvine, Calif.-based maker of printed and laminated flexible packaging for various industries including pet, has joined the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC), which was founded in 2013 with the mission to accelerate environmental and social sustainability in the pet industry through education, implementation tools and collaboration.
“As a member of PSC, we are committed to implementing sustainable business practices that minimize our impact on the environment and the communities where we do business,” said Excel Packaging in a statement. “Sustainability is a critical component of any successful business strategy and we are proud to say that we are taking steps towards a more sustainable future for our customers and the community at large.
“At Excel, we are dedicated to finding a way to help our products become part of a ‘circular plastic economy’ where packaging doesn’t become waste, but instead serves as ‘nutrients’ for new products. By taking the first steps toward this circular plastic economy initiative, we hope to do our part in raising the recycle rate.”
