In an article from CosmetissBusiness Idealpak recently launches new environmentally sustainable packaging solutions, including bio-based sugarcane tubes, PET bottles, jars and plastic tubes made from Post-Consumer Resin, as well as biodegradable PE and PP bottles.
Idealpak’s sugarcane tubes are made from bio-plastic derived from 100% renewable resource—sugarcane, instead of fossil-based materials. They have the same structure and function as the conventional tubes and there is no difference in the properties.
Therefore, no new filling equipment are needed if you shift from conventional tubes to sugarcane tubes. The carbon footprint of a sugarcane tube is 50% better than that of a conventional tube. After being used, the sugarcane tubes can be 100% recycled.
Idealpak’s PCR (Post-Consumer Resin) packaging series is another eco-friendly packaging solution for many brand owners to support the recycling program and meet the demands of consumer.
PCR is recycled materials made from discarded plastic products. Packaging products made from PCR is an environmentally sustainable solution for reusing single-use materials that would otherwise be disposed of in landfill.
10% to 100% PCR can be added into PET bottles, PET jars or cosmetic tubes. PCR packaging can: 1. Reduce virgin plastic consumption and help save energy and fossil fuels; 2. Reuse single-use items and keep plastic out of landfill; 3. Lower the carbon footprint: the carbon footprint of manufacturing 100% PCR PET is 60% lower than manufacturing virgin PET; 4. Be recycled again for new manufacturing.
