Environmental Focus

Ralston and the Environment

Inteplast Group W. Ralston is committed to conducting our business in an environmentally responsible and proactive manner, consistent with our commitment to corporate citizenship, social responsibility and sustainability.

W. Ralston offers a variety of environmentally friendly plastic options including bags made from recycled materials.

Be certain to ask your sales representative for more information and remember that all plastic products that Ralston manufactures can be recycled!

W. Ralston Uses Two Kinds of Recycled Material:

  • Post Industrial trimmings and scrap from the production process that would have otherwise gone into the waste stream
  • Post Consumer material that has been used by a consumer from blue box residential program, recycled and re-introduced into a new product
  • All our Packaging (Corrugate and retail boxes ) are Made with 100% Recycled Paper – 100% licensed and certified

The Difference

We have helped create programs for environmental certifications such as Ecologo for recycling and Compostable bags for food waste.

We were the first in Canada to:

  • Introduce linear low density resin
  • Introduce anti-bacterial additives
  • Obtain Ecologo certification using post- consumer film
  • Introduce certified compostable bio- resins.
