Green and Clean for Over 20 Years!

Society is more environmentally conscious with an increased emphasis on preserving, protecting and sustaining the environment. Sustainability has become more than just a buzzword; it’s now a movement. Amatech has been at the forefront of the environmental benefits of using returnable, reusable packaging since the company was founded in 1990. Owner and creator of Amatech, Dave Amantangelo, believed in prolonging the life cycle of a box on an environmentally, economic and financial level for customers. One tree makes 100 boxes and usually those boxes are tossed out after one use due to poor durability. Amatech’s Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) have the ability to be used for multiple uses and that’s what Amatech has done for its customers.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Reducing environmental waste means looking for ways to reduce material used in our products, reusing products whenever possible, and recycling when the product’s useful life is over. The lifecycle of Amatech’s RPCs contributes to the reduction of environmental waste on all three aspects.

Reduce ◦ Amatech’s RPCs twin-wall fluted structure produces strength and rigidity at a lower weight, thereby reducing the amount of material required.

Reuse ◦ The durability of RPCs in outdoor use and in packaging applications means it can be used longer and reused over and over enabling a longer useful life.

Recycle ◦ RPCs uses polypropylene copolymers which make for easy recycling at the end of their useful life. Polypropylene, being a polyolefin, recycles in processing streams such as plastic milk cartons and detergent bottles.

Advantages of using RPCs

Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) have many advantages over corrugated paper containers:

REUSABLE – RPCs are manufactured to be durable and sustainable to get multiple uses compared to a one-time trip with a cardboard box

DURABLE – Weather resistant, incredible sustainability, manufactured to last

SAFE – There is no need for box cutters which can be a safety hazard to line workers

Paper vs Plastic

A lot of people have the misconception that paper is more environmentally friendly. But when considered over the entire life of the packaging, paper and cardboard embody far more greenhouse gasses than their plastic equivalents. Paper products take substantial amounts of energy to make. Crushing a tree down into small fibers, mixing the wood pulp into a slurry and then passing the wet mass through huge rollers cannot be done without use of enormous quantities of power. Making cardboard is almost the third largest industrial use of energy on the planet. A second concern is that many paper and cardboard products end up in local authority landfill, where they rot down anaerobically, creating the greenhouse gas methane in the process. Plastic, as is well known, doesn’t rot and sequesters its carbon forever.
