The Good

  • PP is a highly recyclable material and has wide application across numerous packaging formats and industries
  • It is highly durable and affordable, and can be used across numerous different packaging formats
  • Available in high and low barrier structures
  • Considerably better than most non-recyclable multi-material laminates

The Bad

  • Made from virgin petrochemical materials
  • More cost-effective than most bioplastic alternatives to flexible packaging
  • Soft plastic recycling is challenging. This material either needs to go into a dedicated polypropylene stream (#5) or a drop-off soft plastics collection stream, which are limited although growing rapidly
  • Doesn't contribute meaningfully in moving towards a circular economy, but it's a starting point
