We know sustainable packaging is important to our customers, and we’re committed to finding the most sustainable solutions we can.
As of May 2021, we’ve started using packaging made of post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics for all apparel orders shipped from our in-house facilities.
The share of recycled plastic per bag depends on each facility, but it’s at least 50% for the outside (white or grey) packaging and at least 30% for the inside (clear) bags that are used in multi-item shipments.
As of May 2022, we’re starting to gradually switch to 90%–100% PCR plastic packaging for apparel products in our in-house facilities all over North America. Learn more about the new improved packaging over here.
PCR packaging protects the products just as well as the virgin plastic bags, and they look almost the same. However, choosing PCR plastic over virgin plastic is the right thing to do to minimize the environmental impact plastic has on our planet.
We’re continuously working on becoming more sustainable, and we’ll keep exploring greener packaging options in the future. In the meantime, feel free to explore our Sustainability and Responsibility page to learn more about Printful's sustainability efforts.
