Uzin Utz Group announces all plastic canisters now made from 100% recycled plastic

  • 1 Jun 2020

Sustainability is at the heart of the Uzin Utz Group’s corporate philosophy and the majority of its product developments have been based on making them more environmentally friendly.

Part of this strategy is to challenge the status quo and question the methods we use especially in the manufacturing process.

In the past few years, the company started to change its plastic canisters by reducing the amount of virgin plastic and increasing the percentage of recycled plastic content, known as PCR (post-consumer recycled).

Since March 2020, all its plastic canisters have been made from 100% recycled plastic; what’s more, these new canisters can in turn also be recycled.

Based on this change, the Uzin Utz Group now saves approximately 80 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, as the new canisters have a 50% lower carbon dioxide footprint.

The new packaging makes a significant contribution to environmental protection and helps contribute to the group’s sustainability strategy. 

Packaging is just one area the Uzin Utz Group is looking to improve and continually invests into sustainable solutions.

Its products are responsibly sourced and manufactured to meet ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and most have been awarded EMICODE EC1 Plus® certification to ensure products are solvent-free, extremely low emission and guarantee excellent indoor air quality.

Uzin Utz Group will continue to adopt the best environment practices and aim to work in such a way that everything created is sustainable.
