From sugarcane to recyclable plastic
As part of our brand identity, we constantly consider and measure our products’ impact on the environment and in this process, the packaging of our products play an important role. So far, we have used plant-based material from sugarcane instead of traditional plastic packaging.
To further reduce the environmental footprint of our packaging and with the aim not to produce any new plastic material, we are happy to share that we have decided to shift from the current plant-based material to rPET bottles which are recyclable bottles made of recycled plastic material.
Read more on the products on how to recycle the different packaging. In general, all bottles should be recycled as plastic. The packages with pumps should be separated and the pumps should be sorted as general waste. Tubes shall also be sorted as general waste.
The FSC-certification ensures responsible forestry where no more trees are felled than the forest can produce. FSC is also a guarantee that animals and plant life are protected and that those who work in the forest have education, proper safety equipment and a reasonable salary.
All packaging paper in Urtekram production is FSC-certified, which ensures that we use paper from sustainable forests and that the forest cycle stays intact.
This includes everything from the boxes that we ship to wholesalers to the folders that you pick up in your store.
