Renewable Plant-Based Packaging Uses Raw Materials

Clear Lam Packaging announces a major advancement in green packaging with the development of the new, renewable packaging for Snyder’s of Hanover.

The new bag created for the Snyder’s of Hanover organic product line uses renewable raw materials that are 90 percent plant-based, part of Clear Lam’s Project EarthClear packaging initiatives.

During a year of research and development, Clear Lam replaced conventional petroleum-based plastics with a unique material derived primarily from renewable Ingeo PLA (polylactic acid). Clear Lam derived a way to produce the new plant-based packaging with the appropriate properties to make the bags act and feel like conventional bags.

A bright yellow graphic on the upper right corner of the package helps differentiate the bag on the shelf and directs consumers to the back panel for more information on the benefits of the renewable packaging.
