It's In The Bag - An Unmistakably Weis blog on food and life

New Recyclable Packaging Now Available


POSTED BY | POSTED IN Sustainability News | POSTED ON 6-18-2012

 

I want to let you know of a great sustainable packaging change taking place in our Meat Department.   Weis Markets is launching the only recycled/recyclable air tight sealed tray.  This newly designed and patented tray is made from 80% recycled #1 plastic, the same plastic of which water bottles and soda bottles are made.  This type of plastic is readily accepted in most recycling programs which will make it easier for our customers to recycle after use. Clearly Clean, the manufacturer of the recycled/recyclable packaging, is a local company located in Orwigsburg, Pa.

 

We introduced the trays in our stores around the first of May  and have now replaced 100% of our non recyclable air sealed trays and PP (Polypropylene #5) containers with the new recycled/recyclable trays.   Weis Markets is the first retail grocery chain to introduce this new recycled/recyclable tray.  This new recyclable meat package is lined with our “Unmistakably” Weis slogan and sustainability logo to let our customers know that Weis is committed to being a good steward of the environment.

Look for the recycled trays in our stores today!

 

Keepin’ It Green,

Patti
