At a time when the environmental impact of packaging is coming under increasing scrutiny, Vetroplas will be championing a range of products from its European partners which combine strong green credentials and high functionality.

A new range of cosmetic aluminium bottles will be showcased. These are forever reusable, easily recyclable and reduce pack weight significantly compared with other materials.

Glass continues to figure prominently – the new Licata refill jar combines a luxury heavyweight glass outer with a plastic refill inner and recycled PP lid and recycled PE shive.

A number of recyclable and responsibly manufactured plastic tubes will be available from Vetroplas and partner, CTL: 100% recyclable in mould labelled PP tubes provide a single material pack solution, extruded green PE tubes created from sugar cane grown in controlled areas and resulting in a lower environmental impact plus reduced C02 emissions, and PE extruded tube sleeves made with up to 50% PCR (post consumer recycled) material, which promotes the circular economy by reintroducing waste into the manufacturing chain.

In partnership with mechanical foamer specialist, Albea Alkmaar, Vetroplas is offering a range of options including the EZ’R foamer pack with flip top cap. Unlike many foam pumps, the EZ’R engine is 97% PP and allows for recycling within the PP stream. A sugar cane based bio PE bottle is another new option and this can be paired with a wide range of handheld foam pumps.

There will also be lots of finished product on display to demonstrate what is possible in terms of pack customisation with the use of colour and decoration, so please feel free to visit us on Stand F32
