Paper Bottles – eco-Packaging

If you do not believe that consumer product manufacturers are interested in ecological bottles, think again!
2015 Carlsberg Beer: We are working on developing the world’s first ‘paper’ beer bottle made from sustainably-sourced wood fibers that is both 100% bio-based and fully recyclable. We are now joined by more partners: The Coca-Cola Company, The Absolut Company and L’Oréal and more in a paper bottle community – launched by Paboco®

An inner film polyethylene pouch with spout has been, until now, the inner component that comes in contact with the product, whether liquid, powder, or other. 2018 … However, gone is the inner pouch, replaced by a very thin extrusion blow molded liner that is fully recyclable, is made of 80% post-consumer HDPE, and requires 60% less plastic than was needed for the inner pouch used previously. Perhaps even more significant is the elimination of the side flange, thus the elimination of glue. Now in place are interlocking patterns to bind the two shells together, an approach far more robust and reliable, says Ecologic’s Julie Corbett.
Ecologic Brands‘ manufacturing processes are carefully controlled in our facilities located in Manteca, California. For brands with a global footprint, partners in Canada, Asia, and Europe with Ecologic Brands equipment are ready to support you. Order a sample.

There are probably thousands of eco bottle companies around the world, NOW. If you would like me to find some that can supply your needs, feel free to ask. Let me know what kind you are looking for.

Insulated – eco-Packaging

I have been asked a number of times about
Insulated Package Material for Food shipments….

ClimaCell® is our patented flagship material made from renewable plant-based components and paper. With excellent thermal performance and a competitive cost structure, it is the ideal replacement for unsustainable insulators, like Styrofoam®.
We’ve helped dozens of companies reduce their packaging costs and lower their overall impact on the environment. Give us a shout and we’ll work with you to develop a solution that suits your needs.
The rise of both food and pharmaceutical deliveries is one of the fastest growing shipping markets, and with that comes a lot of waste.  We’re looking to make a dent in that.

Hello Lesley,
Thank you so much for mentioning us in your blog. Obviously, your vision for a more sustainable future with less waste and pollution is exactly what Vericool works toward each day.

You can see from our product brochures. Vericool does not specialize on print. Our primary focus is on thermal insulation using a variety of recyclable or compostable insulations.
