With Great Packaging Comes
GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

Since 1993, our goal has been to create innovative solutions so that our customers can have high-quality packaging they can trust. But we want to give you more, which is why we’ve tacked on a new goal: to make 100% of our products include up to 100% of recycled, recyclable materials by 2025.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROMISE

Lacerta’s Four Sustainability Pillars

At Lacerta, we’re committed to weaving sustainability into every aspect of our business. That’s why we’ve created this four-point sustainability promise.

 

Innovation touches every part of our manufacturing process. Our investment in specialized decontamination units enables recycling of plastic that in the past was often discarded. Using state of the art recycling technology helps reduce costs making the use of recycled plastic competitive with virgin resins.

20 to 50% of plastic in production becomes trim scrap, which means it's cut from the product. We recycle all of that scrap for future reuse, while our closed-loop water system keeps our water waste way down.

Using recycled materials helps us conserve energy. Processing Post Consumer Regrind (PCR) requires 79% less energy and produces 67% less emissions compared to virgin PET.

Where you get your recycled plastic matters. We work with sourcing partners in the U.S. and around the world to reduce plastic waste in local communities and in the environment.
