unveils newest enviro packaging concept &nbspavc corp., the torrance, ca.based custom retail packaging manufacturer and leader in environmental packaging solutions, recently unveiled its newest green packaging solution, the envirotube. this eyecatching clear plastic retail package is made entirely from one type of plastic and can be recycled once the product is removed. the envirotube utilizes one type of plastic for the entire package, which eliminates the issue of cross contamination in the recycling stream, and can be made using most pvc alternatives. this tubelike packaging concept features an attractive look with a clamshell or thermoformed tray suspended inside, almost as if it were floating within the package. the package is sealed with end caps made from injection molded or thermoformed plastic, molded with slits in the center to hold the internal tray or clamshell and keep it suspended within the tube. by printing directly on the plastic available in up to eight colors, the envirotube does not need a printed paper insert, reducing the amount of components and further eliminating cross contamination. if desired, a removable printed paper insert can be used instead. windows can be opened anywhere on the artwork for optimum product visibility. for more information &nbspvisit the website at www.avccorp.comrexams rfid bottles comply with new regulations&nbsp rexam
