Recycled content in all Hortipak polypropylene labels
All new Hortipak labels and handles will contain recycled polypropylene at no extra cost to customers and with no impact on product quality.
Hortipak’s Managing Director James Buffoni explains, “We are delighted to announce the move across all of our labels and handles. The UK Plastics Pact target for polypropylene is to achieve 20% recycled content in PP products by 2025. Our core products will contain at least 20% recycled content by default – this action will put our products some five years ahead of government targets.”
We want to ensure that if you buy a product from us it has maximum impact in-store as well as having maximum value to UK recyclers – this cannot be said for printed PET and PS.
Hortipak understands the specific needs of UK customers, the UK recycling systems and the UK’s strategy for plastic use and recycling going forward. We work closely with key actors in this area who provide credible third-party feedback on our plans and decisions. We led the way on sustainability over a decade ago by moving to recyclable polypropylene labels – a move which has withstood scrutiny particularly of the last few years, with other products such as the PP Taupe Pot following suit.
