Primary and secondary packaging
We have also worked on primary and secondary packaging to develop suitable solutions for transporting and storing the product, trying to minimise additional shipping packaging and using FSC®-certified cardboard with a recycling rate of at least 70%.
For the supply of adhesive labels (required on some packages) we worked with a supplier who has adopted a green production protocol: chemical-free pre-press process, water-based varnishes, 100% reduction of water consumption in printing, 100% use of renewable sources, FSC certified recycled paper and use of new paper not derived from wood, waste reduction and CO2 offsetting.
PET was chosen as the material for the pemanent bottles because it is the best material for containing household detergents. It retains the characteristics of the product, is lightweight and durable. The bottle has a potentially infinite lifespan and is 100% recyclable in plastic when it reaches the end of its life.
The spray in the R5 kits is made of plastic, in particular polypropylene (PP), HDPE and LDPE; we are working on a new one made preferably from recycled or mono material.
