Fillbee is a Returnable Beverage Pack Designed to Eliminate Consumer Waste
Waste prevention is the most efficient way to reduce CO₂ emissions. Fillbee is a ‘mini crate’ that was designed to fit in a closed loop deposit scheme and meets all the requirements to minimize environmental impact: combined with reusable glass or PET bottles, they are 100% reusable and 100% recyclable, eliminating consumer waste completely. Furthermore, DS Smith Plastics has the technique to produce crates and Fillbees out of 100% post-consumer waste.
The shelf ready packaging that can be designed for any shape of bottle fits in the crates. It is easy to take home, easy to store and easy to return empty bottles to the store. The durable packaging can be stacked when full thanks to the unique feature at the bottom of the pack that prevents direct pressure on the crowns of the bottles to avoid CO₂ loss. Furthermore, the large, recyclable IML labels allow for easy branding at POS and the application of barcodes to scan the products.
