Neopac wins WorldStar Awards for two sustainability-minded tube solutions
Oberdiessbach, Switzerland – Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, has earned a pair of 2021 WorldStar Awards from the World Packaging Organization for two of its most groundbreaking recent tube solutions. For Neopac, both recognitions came in the Health & Personal Care category and exemplify the company’s commitment to sustainable packaging solutions.
Neopac’s RECYCLED PLASTIC TUBE, which is utilized by Farfalla for several of its 100% natural vegan haircare products, was one of the solutions recognized. Part of Neopac’s EcoDesign family of sustainable solutions and suitable for use with cosmetic products, the RECYCLED PLASTIC TUBES comprise up to 64% PCR material from post-consumer recycled material (PCR) derived from household waste such as milk, water and juice bottles, and post-industrial recycled material (PIR) from laminate production waste.
Also recognized with a WorldStar Award was Neopac’s tube solution for beauty company Manna. The co-extruded tube is comprised of 64% recycled household waste (PCR), particularly materials from former milk bottles. Certified through COSMOS as well as sustainable products designator Ecocert, the tubes can be recycled in the same streams as conventional polyethylene (PE) tubes.
