HOUSTON, Texas, April 7, 2022 – Tomball, Texas-based Houston Poly announced today that it has joined the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) as an industry supply chain partner.
“The future of packaging will require that the entire supply chain works together – from materials manufacturers to converters to brand owners, as well as government agencies and university programs – and that’s the mission of the SPC,” said Houston Poly President Wes Sumner. “Joining this organization gives us a seat at the table as the industry charts its future.”
The growing SPC membership includes:
- 115 Material Manufacturers
- 238 Packaging Converter/Suppliers
- 189 Brand Owner and Retailers
- 21 Recyclers and Waste Recoveries
- 85 Packaging and/or Sustainability Consulting Services
- 39 Government Agencies
“As a business, we measure true sustainability when an innovation such as compostable films begins to scale and diffuse, Sumner added. “We see the steady increase in demand for sustainable products each year and we’re inspired when our technology partners have pushed the boundaries of compostable polymers to create new or improve upon existing ones.”
Additional company sustainability initiatives have included new extrusion lines, materials provider relationships, and staff members with sustainable packaging expertise.
