Renew Zero Air Cushions made of 100% Recycled/ Renewable Material

Renew zero air cushions are 100% CO2 Neutral and are 100% Recyclable.

Manufacturing:

Made with true waste from consumers and recycled plant-based waste. Renew Zero air cushions are produced with 50% recycled plastic waste from consumers like bags and wrappings and 50% recycled renewable plant-based waste like leaves and husks. The air cushions are 100% recyclable. The air cushions are CO2 neutral from cradle to gate.

Consumption & Use:

Used to protect the content of your package. The air cushions are used to make sure you receive your package damage-free.

Recycling & Reuse:

Please Recycle me! The air cushion can be disposed of with your plastic waste so it can be reused again.

Our Sustainable Product Design Principles

At Pregis, we believe that circularity and minimizing CO2 emissions are key to building sustainability into every part of the supply chain. We manufacture the highest quality product packaging based on our sustainable product design principles.

We focus on true circularity

We use post-consumer recycled waste as much as possible.

We close the circular loop

All our products are 100% recyclable with non toxic ingredients.

We drive innovation

We are continuously looking for new ways to further reduce CO2 emissions and end plastic waste.

We certify our products

Our products are certified by independent organisations to guarantee and validate the origin and impact through the supply chain.

We will never touch the food chain.

We only use natural renewable waste in our products that is not suitable for consumption.

We minimize CO2 emission

We use raw materials and production methods that minimize CO2 emissions. Short supply lines – we produce our products close to our customers.

We Certify our Products

We use independent organisations and certification programs to certify our products. These organisations & programs help improve global sustainability by offering guidelines and certifications for companies working towards a greener future.

The post-consumer recycled content in the Renew air cushions is EUcertplast certified (European Certification of Plastics Recycling). With the EuCertPlast certification, we give you an assurance that the resins processed in our supplier’s plant are treated according to best practices and with respect towards the environment.

The plant-based sources are ISCC certified. This certification recognizes that these raw materials are traceable and come from ISCC chain of custody members. 

A Life Cycle Analysis study performed by Emitwise has confirmed that the Renew Zero air cushions are CO2 neutral from cradle to gate.

We use Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) waste where possible

There are many ways how to recycle plastic and reuse it in the production of new products. At Pregis we choose to maximise the content of post-consumer recycled plastic which is true waste. Post-consumer waste has completed its life cycle as a retail or consumer item, like plastic bags, bottles and plastic packaging.

Post-Consumer Recycled Content versus Post-Industrial Recycled Content

(simplified representation)

  1. Producer of the Films
  2. Retail, the films are on demand inflated into air cushions which protect the content of your package
  3. Consumer, disposes of plastic waste so it can be recycled
  4. Resin made from post-consumer recycled waste
  5. Producers of plastic products, disposes of industrial waste/ production scrap so it can be recycled
  6. Resin made from post-industrial recycled waste

CO2 emission explained

There’s no denying that CO2 emissions have a negative influence on the earth’s climate. Our Renew Zero air cushions help companies to lower their carbon footprint.

Renew Zero Air Cushions are CO2 Neutral from Cradle to Gate

The fact that these air cushions generate ZERO carbon is due to the use of 50% recycled, renewable plant waste like leaves and husks – also called second generation bio sources. Trees and plants absorb CO2 or have a negative CO2 emission. This also applies to the second generation bio source in Renew Zero.
The negative CO2 emission from the 50% bio source compensates for the already low CO2 emission from the post-consumer recycled (PCR) content, resulting in a product with ZERO CO2 emissions when it leaves our factory.

  1. Resin made from recycled plant-based waste with a negative CO2 emission
  2. Resin made from Post Consumer Recycled waste with a low CO2 emission
  3. CO2 Neutral from cradle to gate
