Eco-friendly can holder to be showcased at packaging event

multipack of cans

PACT2EARTH, the UK’s first producer of compostable and biodegradable can holders, is to debut at the Packaging Innovations event held in London on September 11 and 12.

PACT2EARTH has developed a recyclable, compostable and biodegradable drinks can holder to replace traditional plastic rings.  The Sussex-based company say their mission is to help facilitate the removal of single-use plastic packaging from the drinks industry.

Co-founder of PACT2Earth, Matt Williams, said, “PACT2EARTH was borne from a desire to make a difference in a sector that we know and operate in. Co-founder Jamie has been instrumental in the growth of craft beer from bottles to cans through his mobile canning operation. His technical knowledge and insight combined with the customers, contacts and relationships we have within the drinks industry, along with our material and applicator partners, will make a game-changing product.

“It’s really early days but very exciting as we are already working with a number of craft brewers to replace their plastic rings with our compostable alternative. The versatility combined with the water resistance of the Cygnus Eco board makes this a really exciting option for the drinks industry and the planet.”

The innovative new can holder and founding team can be seen at stand L64 at the PlasticFreeLand area of the Packaging Innovations event at the London Olympia.
