Prime Label & Screen Inc., manufacturer of the Rigid Lens II, an innovative Flexible Packaging Closure for pouches and flatpacks has passed the Third Party Review for the searchable database of sustainable packaging materials for their sustainability claims of “Source Reduced” and “Shipping Efficiency”.

This distinction allows Prime Label & Screen’s database entry for the Rigid Lens II to be visible within the Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Sustainable Packaging Modeling software that is used by buyers and specifiers to conduct what-if scenarios with sustainable packaging alternatives right within the modeling software.

Rigid Lens II, an innovative Flexible Packaging Closure for pouches and flatpacks, alleviates the need for using molded fitments for package access and closure. Normally the Rigid Lens II closure will result in a 74% reduction in plastic weight versus a comparable molded fitment. Its flatter package profile will also result in more efficient packing and shipping requirements.

Barry Scott, president of Prime Label & Screen, stated, “We created a rigid label that has a hinge on it that functions much like an injection molded piece and is able to work with medium and high stack count wipes products.”

Mr. Scott continued, “There is a significant trend in the world of wipes packaging to take as much plastic and weight out of the packaging. The Wal-Mart Initiative to reduce packaging globally 5% by 2013 is real. Now that the Rigid Lens II closure has passed the Third Party Review, Prime Label & Screen will be able to help consumer product companies meet the sustainability objective.”
