EUGENE, Ore. -- Plastic is everywhere you go and in almost everything you use. One company in Eugene noticed this and decided to make the process of making plastic products more sustainable.

PakTech makes 100 percent recycled and 100 percent recyclable plastic handles like the rings around cans and bottles.

They decided to innovate this process because they saw a need for a product that takes sustainability into their own hands on the front end of production.

Vice president Zak Borg says they are always looking for entry level employees and they even have a partnership with Lane Community College to hire those with manufacturing skills

"Being able to remake something that's thought of as high quality is really kind of a new thing." said Borg.

That's why PakTech got in on the ground floor and lead the market with these products.

Borg says the opportunity for growth is exponential and the most important thing to have when you apply is a good spirit and team-work mentality.

Entry level positions are quickly turning over, said Borg, and he said there is a job for every personality type.
