An eco-friendly initiative is making its way into Walex septic products with the company’s new recyclable packaging.
The Wilmington, North Carolina-based supplier recently started packaging its Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment with the recycled material. Walex stated it plans to use the recycled material packing with other offerings in the future.
“We should all strive for a better sustainability approach,” Walex RV Sales Manager Tony Butler said. “With Bio-Active Septic Tank Treatment, we wanted to set the standard and lead by example to have industry-first recyclable packaging. We look forward to moving our RV/Marine drop-in sanitation products into this recyclable packaging in the future.”
The new Bio-Active Septic pouch is marked with a label created by How2Recycle.org, a program that aims to clarify the recycling process with standardized instructions and labels. Customers can take the pouch to a plastic bag recycling bin at several grocery stores and retailers. Walex noted the material will then be made into synthetic lumber or recycled into another bag.
The switch to recyclable packaging represents Walex’s stated ongoing mission to reduce its environmental impact. Walex President Bill Williams said he recognized his company serves an industry of outdoor enthusiasts and wanted to ensure the company’s ethos aligned with customers.
“Walex takes tremendous pride in developing products that are biodegradable and ecofriendly,” Williams said. “Moving into sustainable packaging is the logical option to ensure we are good stewards of the environment and industries we serve.”
Walex is an environmental odor control business founded in 1987. The company serves the RV, marine, portable sanitation, commercial transportation and solid waste markets.
