This movement is something Bell Packaging have responded to by launching the 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly plastic, Retran®.
You may not be aware that such a thing was available or even possible, however this raw material produced from redundant PET bottles and drinks containers has created a plastic which can be reused over and over again.
Retran® is a transparent material which is clearly marked with the recyclable logo and since its launch in January, the company has converted nearly all of its customers to this form of recycled packaging.
It’s become a huge selling point to consumers who want to know if the products they are buying are packaged with recyclable materials, and clearly marking this logo onto the packaging makes it easy for customers to identify the material and recycle accordingly.
The raw material used to produce Retran® has been trialled extensively and the results show the material is as strong as the standard PET film used to make Jetran® tubing and clear folding boxes, so it doesn’t compromise on quality.
The material used to make Retran® is certified for direct food contact and the production is carried out in a BRC accredited facility.
Available in over 300 standard sizes Retran® can be formed into different shaped tubes and supplied in cut lengths or on reels. Typical application areas include DIY products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and confectionary.
Packaging is what they do and is vital to business, but so is our environment. The company is committed to making huge steps towards ensuring what we produce will reduce plastic waste in the near future and will continue working towards a greener future.
