MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., May 18, 2021 — Glenroy® Inc., a leading sustainable flexible packaging company, and Walex Products Company, a global leader in the commercial and consumer odor control markets, have announced the availability of its industry-first recyclable stand-up pouch for the residential septic tank treatment market.

As part of the Glenroy Sustainable Packaging portfolio, this innovative and eco-friendly pouch qualifies for the How2Recycle® store drop-off label program.

“Walex takes tremendous pride in developing products that are biodegradable and eco-friendly,” said Bill Williams, President of Walex. “Moving into sustainable packaging is the logical option to ensure we are good stewards of the environment and industries we serve.”

The store drop-off recyclable pouch adheres to Glenroy’s stringent quality and printing standards, features a recyclable zipper closure and can stand up to the rigors of eCommerce transport. “Working with environmentally conscious brands like Walex is critical in our efforts to accelerate the circular economy,” said Evan Arnold, Vice President of Business Development at Glenroy. “We continue to dedicate our resources to working with brand owners in all markets to achieve their sustainability goals through the use of recyclable flexible packaging.”
