The UK’s biggest producer of plastic milk bottles is the latest to pledge its support for recycled high density polyethylene (rHDPE) during the current period of uncertainty.
Nampak Plastics, producers of the Infini lightweight bottle, is urging the dairy industry to maintain its commitment to using recycled materials, not least due to the environmental benefits it brings.
"At Nampak we feel very passionately about upholding the recycled plastic industry in the UK, and we want others to join us in supporting this initiative,” Eric Collins, Managing Director of Nampak Plastics, commented.
"This is a crucial issue that we’ll continue to support – current rHDPE inclusion rate of up to 20 percent in our bottles means a 14 percent reduction in the amount of carbon used. Lightweighting with our Infini range of bottles delivers a further 20 percent carbon reduction. That’s a huge amount.”
