In 1992 the company, its headquarters in Morbach, Germany - launched its first recycling facility. The recycling capacity is steadily increasing and Papier-Mettler boasts the largest production capacity in Europe.

ecoLoop/I’m eco – packaging is made from recycled film waste and is manufactured in a closed recycling loop process. Film waste is processed and then manufactured into new recycled carrier bags.

Industrial film packaging consists of 30-50% and carrier bags at least 90% Post Consumer Recycling (PCR) material.

PCR material packaging is recyclable and reduces the generation of waste. It uses 80% less fossil fuels and there is a 40% reduction in CO2e emissions* during manufacture over virgin material carrier bags.

ecoLoop carrier bags can be re-used many times, achieving the best eco-balance. They are certified with the "Blue Angel" eco label. The Federal Environmental Agency considers recycled plastic packaging which carries the "Blue Angel" eco label an excellent alternative.
