Project EarthClear™ is Clear Lam’s initiative to reduce our impact on the environment through science and innovation. Project EarthClear encompasses various efforts. It is a way for our employees, customers, vendors and consumers to better understand our initiatives and to help us focus our energies in key areas.
For nearly a decade, Clear Lam has invested in research and development to commercialize new packaging technologies that minimize environmental impact. These include three main areas:
The first are renewable plastics. This includes flexible and rigid rollstock produced from raw materials that are not derived from petroleum such as bio-plastics, cellophane and paper. The next category includes materials that incorporate recycled content (plastic or paper). The third is lightweighting technologies that are designed to reduce weight and enhance cubing for improved transportation and merchandising while maintaining package strength, quality, and integrity.
