7 Examples of Lids for PCR Packaging

It is estimated that the U.S. produces 380 million tons of plastic each year. Single-use plastics are an especially prevalent factor of this number. With plastic waste becoming a growing problem in landfills and waterways, it is necessary to seek out alternatives to plastic packaging that can be recycled and reused.

This is where PCR Packaging comes in. PCR stands for Post-Consumer Recycled, meaning that it is made out of recycled materials. PCR packaging reduces the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills by utilizing existing plastic waste to make new packages and containers for consumer goods.

But PCR packaging doesn’t just entail the container, companies use PCR to manufacture a variety of lids, which we will discuss further in this article.

PCR Packaging

PCR packaging is common for plastic materials, but it can also come from aluminum, cardboard, and paper. It is important to create materials that incorporate a high percentage of recycled content to maintain a stronger PCR package.

PCR in packaging can often become weaker through the recycling process. Combining new high-quality resins with recycled material can create a sturdier product for re-use.

These materials are particularly popular in PCR cosmetic packaging, skincare, essential oils, and CBD. PCR plastic packaging can be especially useful in the manufacturing of a variety of lids for the storage of cosmetics, lotions, cannabis products, food, powders, creams, and more.
