The Role of Flexible Plastic Packaging in Environmental Stewardship

In today’s world, the pursuit of sustainability has become a paramount concern for businesses across all industries. As environmental consciousness continues to grow, companies are increasingly recognizing the importance of integrating sustainable practices into their operations. At Josh Packaging, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword – it’s a fundamental aspect of our identity.

While our commitment to customer service and our rigorous 6 Sigma manufacturing processes are already geared towards minimizing waste and maximizing efficiency, our sustainability efforts represent a core pillar of our business ethos. From reducing emissions to recycling materials, we are dedicated to minimizing our environmental footprint at every step of the production process.

One of the key initiatives at Josh Packaging is our continuous operating incinerator, which plays a crucial role in reducing volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions by an impressive 95%. By utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we ensure that harmful emissions are kept to an absolute minimum, thus mitigating our impact on the environment.

Additionally, our solvent recovery program is another cornerstone of our sustainability strategy. Through this initiative, we are able to reclaim an impressive 85% of our dirty solvents, significantly reducing waste and minimizing our reliance on virgin materials. The excess 15% is sent to a cement refinery which uses it for fuel blending.  Josh Packaging also recycles our scrap material.  We collect all trim, waste, and set-up material and send it back to our plastic extruding vendors.  The extruders turn the scrap plastic into bin liners and trash bags.  These actions not only help us conserve valuable resources but also reduces our overall environmental footprint.

At Josh Packaging, we believe in the power of innovation to drive positive change. That’s why our internal R&D team is constantly exploring alternative environmentally friendly packaging solutions. By leveraging cutting-edge research and development, we aim to revolutionize the packaging industry and set new standards for sustainability.

Sustainability is not just a goal at Josh Packaging – it’s a way of life. From reducing emissions and recycling materials to investing in innovative solutions, we are dedicated to minimizing our environmental impact and leading the way towards a more sustainable future. Join us on our journey towards a greener tomorrow.
