Sourcing the right Products

Sustainability is top-of-mind for us when sourcing packaging products. We understand it is vital to evolve with a changing market, not only for our company, but for our planet. It is an old fashioned idea to believe packaging is inherently wasteful; it's not. In fact, most products are already environmentally friendly. If not, there is a low impact alternative for nearly every application. Even something like stretch wrap can be 100% recyclable. Our products are not ending up in land-fills, but joining the circular economy where they are used, and re-used, over and over again. Here at Gertex Solutions, we take pride in having a net positive impact on sustainability.

• Working with vendors who share the same values and commitment to sustainability as we do.
• Identifying alternative products without sacrificing performance or value.

• Placing emphasis on recyclable products to move toward a circular economy.

Working Toward a Circular Economy

The term “circularity” is used to describe an ideal production system in which there is no waste, as every material is kept within the system for future use. It’s all about trying to keep materials in use for as long as possible by recovering and regenerating – with the greatest level of efficiency – every piece at the end of its service life.
