Pathways to Mono-Material Flexible Plastic Packaging

This Pathways to Mono-Material Guide has been developed by the Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) as a tool to support internal and external engagement in line with efforts to improve the recyclability of flexible plastic packaging and films in Canada.

This guidance document is a supplement to CPP’s Flexibles Roadmap (in the final stages for release). The purpose of the Guide is to provide practical information and guidance on the design and manufacturing pathways that enable moving from complex, multi-material flexible plastic packaging to more recyclable mono-material polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) flexible packaging, where and when it makes sense.

Moving to more mono-material flexible packaging enables the likelihood for increased collection, sortation, and effective mechanical recycling of flexible plastic packaging at scale, with less contaminated/mixed material streams, while avoiding product waste and pollution – thereby advancing the circularity of flexible plastics.
