Packaging solutions

                      Green is far more than
                      just a decorative bottle.
There’s a true balance between innovative packaging and environmental
protection. While some companies are just beginning to understand and
adapt to this, Silgan has been practicing it for quite some time. In short,
we’re proud to do whatever we can to support our planet – from developing
sustainable packaging to managing our operations in an environmentally
responsible manner. Here are just some of the ways we do it:

                      •  Using resins that can be recycled in today’s recycling streams
                      •  Producing bottles from 5% up to 100% PCR content in both PET and
                         HDPE resins
                      •  Processing HDPE tri-layer bottles allowing customers to sandwich PCR in
                         the middle layer while avoiding product contact and allowing for a pristine
                         outer layer and optimum shelf appeal
                      •  Continually evaluating bio-resin alternatives
                      •  Reducing secondary packaging through multiuse returnable corrugate
                         and pallet programs or eliminating cartons completely by utilizing trays
                         or tier sheets

                      •  Optimizing product designs for maximum lightweighting opportunities
                      •  Utilizing TOPS software for maximum cube utilization during transportation
                         and warehousing

                      •  Investing in new, energy efficient equipment which allows for better
                         lightweighting opportunities across all materials and processes while
                         decreasing energy usage
                      •  Up to five-pass screen printing allows for a package with a smaller carbon
                         footprint than labeled bottles due to reduced energy usage, less transportation
                         and elimination of label backing
                      •  Energy, pollution and waste reduction plans in place for all facilities
