The use of PCR material helps limit waste, reduces the consumption of virgin material, whether it be fossil or bio-based, and lowers a product’s CO2 footprint. In the case of the Carrot tubes, this means 35 per cent less virgin PE and an 8 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions. That’s why the tubes of the Carrot range stand for The Body Shop’s philosophy and credo ‘launch products with purpose’. The products in the Carrot collection are enriched with organic carrots that are misshaped and thus deemed unsuitable for sale in supermarkets. The carrots are nevertheless still rich in antioxidants and are sourced from a British family-run farm.

  • Aptar Launches SimpliCycle™ TPE Valve Solution

    The SimpliCycle™ valve offers recyclability while still maintaining all of the same advantages of Aptar’s standard and Swimming® Silicone valves, including high repeatable performance and slit versatility to fit a wide variety of applications for food, beverage, and other product applications around the world. “Aptar is committed to providing recyclable flow control solutions to meet not only our corporate sustainability commitments, but also our customers’ sustainability goals,” Susan DeGroot, director of product marketing, said. “The real break-through is offering a recyclable valve solution that does not sacrifice performance. Our SimpliCycle™ TPE valve will continue to provide consistent, quality performance for consumers, who expect a high-level of cleanliness, control, and convenience throughout their dispensing experience.” Aptar’s SimpliCycle™ valve is made from a TPE material with a low density that allows the valve to float, so it is easily separated from the PET stream, and then ultimately recycled within the PP/PE olefin stream. Maximum flow control combined with clean dispensing ensures consumers get precise amounts of product, when and where they want it – avoiding drips, leaks, or spills. SimpliCycle™ is an all-in-one solution delivering on both recyclability and the high-performance the world has come to expect with Aptar valve dispensing.
