Charter Next Generation earns 250 How2Recycle® store drop-off pre-qualification letters

Flexible-packaging substrate provider Charter Next Generation (CNG) has received its 250th How2Recycle® store drop-off pre-qualification letter. CNG’s portfolio of pre-qualified films makes it easy for converters and their CPG customers to make environmentally responsible choices while pursuing store drop-off qualification on their own.

How2Recycle is a standardized labeling system that communicates disposal instructions to the public. It is driven by a coalition of brands that want consumers to be empowered through smarter labeling systems. Pre-qualification allows material manufacturers and converters to vet their products in advance to qualify to use the How2Recycle store drop-off label.

Companies are increasingly building environmental stewardship into their brands in line with customer sentiment. Using store drop-off collection allows brands to actively contribute to recycling efforts, reduce their environmental impact, and align with broader environmental goals.

“This milestone reflects our ongoing dedication to providing brands with solutions that align with environmental goals,” says Joe Glaser, Corporate Sustainability Engineer at CNG. “With a focus on customizability, functionality, and eco-conscious practices, CNG strives to lead the industry toward a more sustainable future.”

“Climate science tells us that we need rapid and deep emissions cuts if we are to achieve global net-zero,” adds Luiz Amaral, CEO-Science Based Targets initiative. “CNG joins the growing list of companies cutting emissions across its entire value chain in line with science, and it is playing its part in limiting warming to 1.5° C.”
