SEOUL, 12 January 2017 (Press Release) - Hansol Paper and Smart Planet announce commercial introduction of high-barrier-performance dryer sheet folding carton packaging with Seventh Generation that qualifies for the optimal recyclability label.

Traditionally, paperboard packaging for dryer sheets containing foils, films, coatings, or laminations for barrier fall into various recyclability categories, depending upon potential contamination to the paper recycling process from these barrier treatments. Hansol Paper’s Hi-Q Eco (B) paperboard is comprised of 100% recycled fiber with Smart Planet Technologies’ EarthCoating interior barrier coating. EarthCoating provides the required barrier properties, yet contains less plastic than traditional low-density polyethylene coatings, and is engineered to be compatible with the paper recycling process. Hi-Q Eco(B) is repulpable and recyclable, and qualifies in dryer sheet folding carton packaging for the optimal “Widely Recycled” label from How2Recycle.

Seventh Generation has successfully transitioned its dryer sheet packaging to Hansol Hi-Q Eco (B). The change in packaging materials for Seventh Generation has enabled upgrading this package from the lesser “Check Locally” label to the coveted “Widely Recycled” label. The improvement in packaging is reflective of Seventh Generation’s mission to inspire a more conscious and sustainable world by being an authentic force for positive change. The new package labeling will be found on store shelves in Q1 2017.

Wal-Mart best practice guidelines encourage the use of the How2Recycle label to help customers recycle. As stated in the guidelines, when brand owners label packaging with the How2Recycle label, they demonstrate to Wal-Mart and consumers a commitment to sustainability.
