Crown Paints introduces 100% recycled plastic containers
Crown Paints is set to launch paint containers made from 100% recycled plastic – making it the first paint manufacturer in the UK to do so.
The plastic 2.5 litre and 5 litre containers, which will be available across Crown Paints’ retail range as early as mid-August, have been manufactured by packaging solutions expert Emballator, using 100 per cent post-consumer waste (PCW) plastic for each container.
The innovative manufacturing process involves separating polypropylene plastics such as shampoo bottles, yoghurt pots, plastic water bottles and even elements from household appliances from unusable plastic waste – saving thousands of tonnes of PCW plastic from otherwise ending up in landfill.
