At Pacsafe, we are driven to reduce our impact on the environment.This can only happen by creating positive growth through positive actions.
Wherever possible, we avoid using chemicals or materials that are harmful to people or the environment.
There are multiple standards around the world listing harmful substances to avoid. We adhere to the strictest guidelines, including:
Over 50 Billion plastic bottles are made each year, with 91% of them ending up in landfill, or the ocean.
Using recycled polyester helps combat this waste, reduces our dependence on crude oil, reduces fresh water used in the production chain, and reduces CO2 and other gas emissions.
Our rPET is made from recycled plastic water bottles, following The Global Recycle Standard. All Pacsafe new bags use either rPET, ECONYL, or other Blue Sign Approved materials, meaning more plastic being given a new life and less finding it’s way into our oceans.
PVC—polyvinyl chloride, or vinyl—is found in arrange of products. Healthy Child Healthy World describes PVC as the most toxic plastic, and vinyl chloride, the chemical used to make PVC, has been described as a known carcinogen by the World HealthOrganization's International Agency forResearch on Cancer. Pacsafe is 100% PVC free since 2008.
Proposition 65 requires businesses who not comply to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. Pacsafe are Prop 65 compliant and do not use any of the hazardous chemicals listed.
All recycled fabrics are Bluesign certified and follows the traceability requirements of Global Recycle Standard.
Pacsafe product made from July 1, 2020 are 100% PFC Free. PFCs are hazardous man-made chemicals. Once released into the environment PFCs break down very slowly; they can remain in the environment for up to 100 years after their release and are dispersed over the entire globe.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC does this by setting standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.
