Late last year, we announced that we were transitioning our plastic packaging to PCR which is better for the environment. We are delighted to let you know that we have completed our Phase 2 so all our consumer trigger spray bottles are now PCR30 (Post-Consumer Recycled 30%)!
This takes the percentage of our PCR usage to around 80% of our plastic packaging requirements, a substantial and positive change.
Martin Burkett, Ritec’s General Manager comments: “This is a great achievement from an environmental point of view. These new trigger spray bottles will function exactly the same as our previous ones so the end-consumer can be reassured there is no performance change there. The consumer may notice a slight colour difference, perhaps a blue, brown or even red tinge, but at the end of the day, they are all greener!”
Martin continues: “So now that is two of our most widely used packaging converted to PCR30, Phase 1 being the transition of our 500ml cylindrical bottles to PCR. We are still committed to converting the rest of our plastic packaging as and when they become available and hope to achieve this within the next year.”
