Environmental Advantages of the Xela Pack
The Xela Pack is fully collapsible when empty. One hundred empty 1oz Xela Packs occupy only 32 cubic inches as opposed to 432 cubic inches of space required for the same number of empty 1oz plastic bottles.
100% PCRP Xela Pack:
Xela Pack offers a sample pack constructed using 100% PCR unbleached kraft material.
Less Residual Waste:
An average plastic bottle after use contains approximately 20-30% leftover product. The Xela Pack allows full dispersal of the product, leaving behind only about 1% of the product after use. This means that less product is necessary to provide consumers with an ample amount. This is a great benefit when considering hotel and cruise line amenities and results in a reduction in waste, energy and shipping materials to provide bulk.
Less Space Consuming:
The Xela Pack takes up approximately 20% less space before use and is lighter than plastic bottles. This translates into a reduction in cardboard, shrink-wrap, pallets and fuel needed to transport the product.
Reduction in Plastic:
The Xela Pack uses approximately 93% less plastic than similar sized bottles and tubes.
Recycling Program Available (for companies using Xela Packs for amenities):
A program instated with each of the properties to assist them in recycling the multi-layer material.
Some Xela Packs are constructed using only paper and poly (by request only), omitting the foil used in most Xela Pack samples. This two-layer structure allows cruise lines to incinerate the Xela Packs after use and use the energy from incineration as power for various uses.
