Responsible Sourcing and Environmental Friendliness
In this day and age of responsible sourcing, many jewelry retailers, designers and manufacturers are looking for responsible, protective packaging that's environmentally friendly, but what does that actually mean?
In order to be environmentally responsible your packaging needs to have certain attributes. Intercept saves resources and preserves the environment, ensuring 100% reliable protection against tarnish and corrosion and here's why:
While Intercept Technology™ packaging materials are safe and non-toxic, as a #4 low density polyethylene (LDPE) plastic, they also break down to a polymer dust in a land fill and are fully recyclable. Along with its reusability, Intercept leaves a much lower carbon footprint than most traditional protective packaging.
Intercept Technology™ films can be recycled and disposed of without any problems because the product meets all national and international regulations for the recycling of colored and uncolored plastics.
Intercept polymers are not just recyclable, but they are also sustainable and compliant with Prop 65 and current European legislation on packaging and recycling – including Reach Initiative, European and Chinese RoHS, TRGS-615 and TRGS-900 - Intercept was awarded a German Government Environmentally Friendly Anti-Corrosion Packaging Award in 2005 (the only anti-corrosion packaging to do so).
Clean, non-toxic, and non-contaminating, Intercept is a superior product that does not use volatile chemicals or leave deposits on products it protects, proving that not all plastics are inherently bad!
