Packages and closures for packaging

Packaging producer supporting waste sorting plant!

Although at first glance the above motto may be a little baffling and one could wonder: 'What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?', there exists a deep connection between production and recycling.
The link between a subject that produces waste and a recycler is a lot more obvious. The key to understand it is to realise that we form one organism. If one organ fails, the whole system fails.
The machines and technologies used in waste sorting plants are constantly improving, but the more advanced and intricate the technology, the pricier it gets. The higher cost of each recycling stage generates higher prices of the regranulate, which then becomes unattractive to buy. Therefore, it is in everyone’s best interest, starting from customers, through producers and ending with recyclers, to simplify and cut the recycling costs.
We encourage all producers of cosmetics, detergents, food and all other goods closed in plastic packaging, to implement simplifications for waste sorting plants!

For instance, the British producers introduce a smart system of packaging markers. Although such chemical markers are invisible to the human eye, they are discernible for the sorters. They include encoded information about the composition of the plastic, including dyes and fillers.

It can be achieved in two ways. You can either imprint a piece of foil with the code on the material or include it in the label.

Another method, which is slightly easier, but less informative, is to include the colour of the proper waste bin the empty packaging should go to. However, this creates a small disadvantage for the producers as they lose some valuable space on their labels.
Nevertheless, there is an upside to it. If you include the recycling information on your label, you will improve your image as a producer.
Your company will be considered socially responsible, which will do good for your PR.
