US (SC): FloraLife introduces recyclable plastic flower food packets

FloraLife is introducing recyclable, all-polypropylene plastic flower food packets.

Recognizing a global trend towards recycling of polypropylene plastic, FloraLife is now offering its customers this option. FloraLife’s new recyclable plastic packets are made solely of polypropylene that are recyclable under various global recycling programs yet offer the same quality and performance that has come to be expected of standard plastic packets on the market. Typically, plastic flower food packets are made of mixed plastic laminate that is not recyclable. Over time, technology has improved so that producing single polypropylene materials that perform equivalently is possible.

“We’ve seen more and more of our customers in areas including the U.K., Germany, Australia, and South Africa, moving away from single-use plastics and embracing recyclable polypropylene for their packaging,” said Mark Allen, Global Product and Sustainability Manager, FloraLife. “FloraLife prides itself on staying ahead of the industry trends, and with a global trend moving towards recyclability of polypropylene, this was a perfect time to introduce our new recyclable plastic packets.”  

The move towards recyclable polypropylene packets supports the sustainable packaging commitment that FloraLife outlined in its 2025 Sustainability Plan. FloraLife’s sustainability initiative is the company’s long-term plan targeted for 2025 that implements the reduce, reuse, recycle, and respect principles in five commitment areas: climate change, water stewardship, product portfolio, sustainable packaging, and stakeholder awareness.

Recyclable polypropylene plastic flower food packets are available in FloraLife® branded packets and for private labels.
