Introducing GreenArrow

Charter NEX’s growing family of sustainable films

Our approach is simple – through the GreenArrow portfolio of films, we aim to help packaging converters and brandowners meet their sustainability goals by converting their multi-material non-recyclable packages into lower carbon footprint, recyclable formats.  Our GreenArrow film solutions utilize the latest polymer and processing technologies to enable the development of more sustainable packaging without sacrificing performance.

On the other end, we aim to lead the charge as demand champions for post-consumer recycled materials. As a growing user of such materials, we hope to drive continued investment in recycling and reprocessing infrastructure for flexible packaging.

Lastly, we are a proud and engaged member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition and would be happy to assist other member companies on how to use our GreenArrow films to achieve compliance for their packaging with the How2Recycle store-drop off program.

Fully Recyclable Barrier and Non-Barrier Lamination Films

We have a full line of surface print and sealant films used in laminations to replace traditional PET / PE laminations.  We also recently expanded this portfolio to include a fully recyclable barrier film with moisture and oxygen barrier properties, one of the first of its kind.  These applications are currently commercial in dry food and dry snack applications.
