Plastic packaging and sustainability — there is no contradiction. If plastic is correctly separated after use, it is ideal for recycling. The old plastics can be turned into new plastics if processed correctly by being separated, sorted, and put through a regrind process.
Thanks to a high quality recycling process, our packaging is now available from post-consumer recycled material, whether it is a yogurt cup, shampoo bottle, or another type of household plastic waste.
Plastic is everywhere these days. It keeps food fresh, ensures clean cosmetics or protects sensitive products from damage on their way to the consumer. As longs as plastic is recycled properly, it can be recycled and turned into new products more than once!
In order to protect the environment, used plastic packaging must be kept in a closed material cycle by recycling. In this way, the use of fossil resources can be reduced and plastic waste can be avoided. And the environment benefits twice over. Because efficient recycling helps to protect our planet sustainably — and we want to contribute to this.
For decades we have been collecting all our production waste in order to recycle it. In the meantime we have optimized this process to such an extent that our internal recycling rate is almost 100%. But this is not the only thing. We offer most of our products, in addition to other sustainable raw material alternatives such as sugarcane, also from used plastic or recycled material. To make "from waste to value" a reality, we breathe new life into used plastic.
The starting raw material for the post-consumer recycling consists of packaging waste that has been recycled by the consumer.
The use of recycled material for the production of packaging material reduces the use of fossil raw materials and lowers the energy demand at the same time. For example, twice as much energy is required to produce standard PET compared to recycling. In addition, there are 75% fewer CO2 emissions in comparison to the use of conventional granulate.
The recycled plastic is just as robust as new plastic! This means that our recycled packaging protects your products just as reliably as a comparable solution made of regular plastic.
