Recyclable mono-material laminate

Grounded's recyclable PE laminate is a mono-material and can be recycled in either dedicated PE stream or soft plastics collections. It has similar performance and barrier properties to traditional plastics that are not recyclable and is suitable for use across a number of different industries.

The Good

  • Made using two layers of the same plastic polymer (commonly known as a mono-material or mono-polymer laminate) making it easier to recycle
  • LDPE is a highly recyclable material and has wide application across numerous packaging formats and industries
  • The recycling industry is a critical part of any functioning circular economy and by increasing demand for recycled materials to aids in the development of critical recycling systems and infrastructure
  • Due to its inert nature, if LDPE ends up in landfills it gradually reforms into biogenic carbon over time instead of generating greenhouse gas emissions

The Bad

  • Soft plastic recycling is challenging. This material either needs to go into a dedicated polyethylene stream (#4) or a drop-off soft plastics collection stream, which are limited although growing rapidly
  • It is manufactured using virgin LDPE, which has a higher carbon footprint compared to recycled plastics
  • It is not biodegradable or compostable and if it ends up in the environment it is likely to be there for many years before turning into biogenic carbon
