* Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials announced its CleanFlake portfolio was named "Top Product of the Year" in the Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards.
"We are excited that our CleanFlake portfolio has been recognized by Environmental Leader," says Don Nolan, president of Avery Dennison's Materials Group. "Industry experts predict that PET usage will increase dramatically over the coming years, and we are proud to offer a solution that will ensure more of that material will enter the recycling stream."
The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line. Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges representing international consumer packaged goods brands, retailers, universities, electronics manufacturers and other organizations.
"PET is one of the plastics most in demand, and loss due to contamination is truly significant," one Environmental Leader judge wrote in an evaluation of the CleanFlake portfolio. "Avery Dennison's CleanFlake solves a very real problem with genuine innovation and is just what I consider to be worthy of acclaim."
