Nivea calendar considers the environment

THERMOFORMING specialist Macpac has designed and produced advent calendar trays for Beiersdorf Nivea, which feature 24 different skin care products behind numbered doors to be opened in the run up to Christmas.

Macpac said the tray design was engineered to minimise shipping and mailing costs and uses “snug nesting” to allow for minimal stacking in transportation.

“Careful consideration towards the environment resulted in the manufacture of a low gauge, lightweight recycled PET (r-PET) with 90% recyclate in the blend, yet still confidently satisfying challenging logistical and modern packing environments without compromising on functionality and product integrity,” Macpac stated. “The Christmas period sees a large volume of packaging destined for landfill. The Nivea tray is 100% recyclable and should avoid this major issue as all local authorities can collect and re-process for continual uses.”
