Various markets were looking for a ‘one blend fits all’ rPET material for their packaging requirements. rPETeCO is a lightweight, low carbon, highly tactile material with an irresistible non-plastic on shelf appearance promoting the environmental credentials of retailers and brand owners alike – Holfeld use 20% less plastic bottles to blend their rPETeCO material compared with conventional rPET.
rPETeCO is made from 90% recycled plastic bottles, each bottle weighing an average of 20 grammes or approximately 50,000 bottles to the tonne. Over the last year Holfeld used 439,000 less waste plastic bottles to produce their rPETeCO trays than they would have done producing rigid PET.
You could say only 8 green bottles left standing on the wall!
