Beverage Sealer / beverage carton

Beverage Sealer
Beverage Sealer

The traditional paper carton is made of plastic coated paperboard which is easy to recycle.
However, it is easy to spill over after it is opened.
Thus, larger paper cartons usually have a plastic bottle spout so that we can put the cap back to prevent it from spilling over.
Nevertheless, this creates another recycle problem.

“Beverage sealer” solves the problem by adding a piece of sealing tag to the top of the carton.
After the carton is opened, the spout can be folded back and the sealing tag can be inserted to the cut to create a hermetic seal. It not only consumes less plastic material, but also makes recycling easier.
