Glenroy develops recyclable stand-up pouch for Walex

Glenroy has partnered with Walex Products Company to develop a recyclable stand-up pouch for the residential septic tank treatment market

Glenroy has partnered with Walex Products Company, one of the global leaders in the commercial and consumer odor control markets, to develop a recyclable stand-up pouch for the residential septic tank treatment market.

As part of the Glenroy Sustainable Packaging portfolio, this eco-friendly pouch qualifies for the How2Recycle store drop-off label program. Consumers that purchase the Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment pods in the recyclable pouch can simply return the clean, empty pouch to any retail store with a plastic bag recycling bin.

‘Walex takes tremendous pride in developing products that are biodegradable and eco-friendly,’ said Bill Williams, president of Walex. ‘Moving into sustainable packaging is the logical option to ensure we are good stewards of the environment and industries we serve.’

The store drop-off recyclable pouch adheres to Glenroy’s quality and printing standards, features a recyclable zipper closure, and can stand up to the rigors of eCommerce transport. 

‘Working with environmentally conscious brands like Walex is critical in our efforts to accelerate the circular economy,’ said Evan Arnold, vice president of business development at Glenroy. ‘We continue to dedicate our resources to working with brand owners in all markets to achieve their sustainability goals through the use of recyclable flexible packaging.’

‘We should all strive for a better sustainability approach,’ added Tony Butler, RV and marine sales manager at Walex. ‘With Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment, we wanted to set the standard and lead by example to have industry-first recyclable packaging. We look forward to moving our RV/marine drop-in sanitation products into this recyclable packaging in the future.’
