Environmental Overview
Environmental pressures and legislative changes toward litter reduction, consumption and waste, will require companies to use packaging that reduces the environmental impact.
Environment

reduce:
Our environmental plastic bags weigh 75% less than the paper shoppers. Approximately 4 trucks of paper bags = 1 truck of plastic bags.
 

re-use:
Plastic bag's life is often extended as it is re-used for many purposes. Paper bags may get one useful life and often can't fulfill that life when it comes in contact with liquids.
 

recycle:
Command's EncoreTM recyclable solutions contains post-consumer recycled (PCR) and post-industrial recycled (PIR) material that CPR3 has diverted from the landfills.
