All items made of wood originate from a forest. How can we be sure that the trees have been cut down in the legal manner and that the logging has not caused overexploitation of the forest? By buying timber with the FSC label, you can be sure that logging has been done in a responsible manner, without jeopardizing local biodiversity and respecting the rights of the local population and forest workers.
This is why it's possible in Europe to use our FSC certificate for many of our wooden picks and paper sleeves.
In principle, we work with new plastic granules in the production of our covers and sheets. Because recycled plastic is not always transparent, we cannot create new transparent flower sleeves. It is possible to produce a non-transparent sleeve or film from recycled LDPE, HDPE or CPP. Many of our buckets are produced from recycled granules. We are looking at the possibilities in this area with our suppliers, would you like to request a sample of this? Ask our account managers!
You can find more information about the possibilities in the field of recycled BOPE, BOPP, HDPE and LDPE in the sample book.
Paper and cardboard packaging may be disposed of with the old paper if it is clean and dry. Single-sided laminated or coated paper and cardboard can also be used as waste paper, if it has been shown that it is suitable for the paper recycling process.
We are open to test with new materials. Even when it comes to small numbers. That is why it is always possible to request samples from us. Our account managers are happy to guide you in the process of switching from traditional packaging to (more) sustainable packaging. We can of course help you further with customer-specific sustainable solutions. Please let us know where your interests lie and we will be happy to make a special offer.
