In keeping with World Recycling Day on March 18, we will also showcase our new packaging line made from post-consumer recyclate (PCR) at GrindTec. Our recyclate is created using plastic waste from private households, which is collected in the ubiquitous yellow sacks/recycling bins and in bottle deposit machines. This waste plastic is properly processed and converted into granules – and thus into valuable new resources that we use to manufacture our packaging.
For our products made from post-consumer recyclate, rose plastic was recently awarded the “Blue Angel” eco-label by the Ministry of Health in Germany. In addition, our company’s protective packaging for transportation, storage, and organization has undergone independent testing and earned Cradle to Cradle® Silver certification.
New products, new features
Our new product, InsertBox Connect, is also available in post-consumer recyclate. This box allows a wide range of insert sizes to be covered with just one package. Foam materials are dispensed with completely, reducing both the number of packaging materials and the effort required to process orders, while also saving storage space. And by the way, a clever plug-in function enables numerous possible variations.
