With consumer awareness of the environmental issues surrounding overconsumption of single-use plastics, Suma is doing its part to tackle this problem by introducing even greener packaging for its products.
Plastic bottles in its range will now be made of post-consumer recycled packaging (PCR) – plastic that has previously been used in a product that is then reprocessed and remade into something new.
According to the company: “Products made from post-consumer plastic close the loop, diverting plastic from landfill and allowing it to be recycled into something else.”
Products wrapped in paper such a toilet and kitchen roll will now be wrapped in 100% recyclable paper which is also able to be composted at home.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Product developer Paul Collins said: “Packaging is an extremely important subject at the moment; everyone is looking at reducing single-use plastics. Ecoleaf has always been a leading green brand. As we’ve refreshed the look, we’ve also taken the opportunity to make packaging changes that make it more sustainable and greener”.
“We have changed all our bottles to post-consumer recycled packaging and our paper products are now wrapped in paper as opposed to the compostable plastic we had before. These are significant developments – we have listened to what people want and are happy with our new range”.
