WE ARE DEDICATED TO CONTINUAL ENHANCEMENT OF SUSTAINABLE RIGID PLASTIC CONTAINERS, WITHOUT COMPROMISING QUALITY.
At the forefront of environmental issues
First Circle Packaging maintains its leading edge on the plastic packaging market through the inclusion of recycled HDPE (rHDPE) into its plastic bottles, a closed-loop recycling practice and one of the most effective forms of plastic packaging recycling through the collection and reprocessing waste bottles.
The use of rHDPE plastic packaging decreases the volume of plastics going into landfill and incineration, reducing pollution and the demand for virgin plastic. First Circle Packaging works with a number of partners who utilise rHDPE, producing plastic bottles comprising up to 50% recycled material. We continually strive and innovate to achieve even higher levels of rHDPE in the future.
We are also committed to continually reducing the weight of plastic packaging, whilst at the same time maintaining product quality, durability and performance. Reducing weight, reduces the quantity of raw materials used and the amount of processing required, therefore, further minimising the impact on the environment.
POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES ACROSS THE BUSINESS
Outside of recycled materials and weight reduction, the whole organisation works tirelessly across every facet of our business to reduce our environmental impact, including but not limited to:
- Reduced energy consumption in our production process
- Reduced water consumption across all sites
- Reduced fuel consumption through cleaner engines, smarter logistics and the onward embracing of technology
- Active recycling wherever possible
