Charter Next Generation Unveils Eco-Friendly Flexible Forming Film for the Healthcare Market Built From Readily-Available Resins 

CHICAGO, IL. – July 11, 2023 (PRNewswire) – Charter Next Generation (CNG), North America’s largest independent producer of sustainable, innovative packaging solutions introduces GreenArrowRx™ Flexible Forming Film, a new sustainable film for the healthcare market built from eco-friendly and readily-available resins. As a result, the new film not only helps healthcare companies achieve their sustainability goals but can also help ease supply issues often associated with traditional resins

Built on eco-friendly values, Trex composite decking is sustainably made from 95% recycled materials, including a mix of industrial wood scrap and polyethylene (PE) plastic film upcycled from common household items such as grocery/shopping bags, sandwich bags, case overwrap, newspaper sleeves and more. The Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge, now in its 16th year, educates students about upcycling and actively engages them in the recycling of this key ingredient in the company’s high-performance, low-maintenance decking.

GreenArrowRx Flexible Forming Film is the result of a multi-year R&D effort by CNG to develop more effective packaging solutions for the healthcare market. The sustainable film delivers seamless validation and fast qualification on existing flexible packaging lines

“We are excited to present this eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional non-sustainable forming webs,” said Vice President of Healthcare Mark Groves. “At CNG, we are passionate about our commitment to sustainability while delivering the high level of protection required to ensure optimal patient outcomes.”

“CNG is thrilled to once again be a part of this important and impactful program,” said Kathy Bolhous, Chief Executive Officer of Charter Next Generation. “We are pleased to be able to help recognize and reward schools for their hard work and dedication to protecting and preserving our planet.”

This year’s Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge delivered record-breaking numbers. More than 780 schools registered to participate, an increase of almost 100 over last year. Together, these students collected a combined total of over 420,000 pounds of polyethylene plastic film – nearly 100,000 pounds more than the 2021-22 challenge.

“Year after year, we continue to be amazed by the determination, drive and creativity of the eco-conscious students who participate in this challenge,” said Hicks. “The energy that these kids bring and the amount of plastic they are able to collect is truly astounding!”

Healthcare Technical Market Manager Eric Tuttle added, “Our goal with GreenArrowRx Flexible Forming Film was simple – offer customers a reliable source of sustainable materials without sacrificing performance. CNG is dedicated to engineering purposeful solutions that stand up to any other material available in the market today.”

The healthcare industry has long been searching for eco-friendly packaging solutions that preserve the integrity of their sensitive products. With the introduction of GreenArrowRx Flexible Forming Film, CNG is leading the way in sustainable packaging. Through its commitment to innovative material science, CNG is providing the healthcare industry with advanced and sustainable packaging solutions.
