German consumer goods company Henkel has come up with a packaging for its all-new Persil 4in1 DISCS detergent that has been made from discarded household plastics. The packaging contains 50% postconsumer recycled polypropylene and cardboard, and has been produced by Greiner Packaging.
The use of cardboard and plastic combination has reduced plastic content in the packaging by more than 40% compared with the previous packaging.
Greiner Packaging international project manager Andreas Auinger said: “By using r-PP, we’re taking another important step forward in terms of the sustainability of our cardboard-plastic packaging materials. Thanks to our innovative two-layer process, we’re meeting the highest standards of sustainability while also making sure that the packaging’s attractive appearance is retained.”
Henkel uses sustainable containers in its detergent capsule products, including its Persil 4in1 Discs.
