Leading plastic packaging designer and manufacturer will highlight its sustainable packaging at upcoming tradeshow

Placon, a leading North American plastic packaging designer and manufacturer, will exhibit at the upcoming Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. The show, set for March 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center, is the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event produced by New Hope Network.

Leading the way in sustainable packaging, Placon will join over 80,000 industry professionals and 3,100 exhibitors focused on eco-friendly and resource-saving products at the Expo. Placon will showcase its environmentally conscious packaging solutions, specifically its custom and stock food packaging made with the EcoStar® branded, FDA approved, food grade recycled PET material from curbside-collected bottles and thermoforms.

A closed-loop process, Placon takes post-consumer PET bottles and thermoform packaging collected from curbsides, keeps them out of landfills and turns them into RPET plastic sheet in a 70,000 square foot recycling facility. Products are then produced from the high quality and high clarity recycled sheet, protecting and showcasing products from fresh-cut, pre-packed foods, to toys, cosmetics and healthcare products for some of the world’s leading consumer goods’ companies. In addition, the products are 100% recyclable.

“We believe in conserving resources and are committed to recycling PET. Our vision is to get the most out of plastic – to reuse, recycle and replastic. Exhibiting our cutting edge environmentally conscious packaging materials provides us the opportunity to showcase our commitment to the future,” said Jeff Lucash, Placon’s Vice President of Sales.

Placon will be exhibiting at Booth #8709 at the Natural Products Expo West.
