Consumers want to contribute in a positive way to solving challenges for the planet and society. Packaging plays a vital role in achieving this objective.

Our lightweighted packaging solutions contribute positively to reducing the CO2 footprint. Within our Ecodesign approach, we aim to systematically incorporate circular economy principles into the product design.

– Less virgin material
– Less energy consumption
– Less transport emissions

25% lighter

VICHY Laboratoires Minéral 89:
The eco-improved bottle is lightweighted by 25% compared to the previous version and is made of 25% PCR glass.

Lightweight is a joint approach between us as packaging supplier and your brand. We need to cooperate closely in the early development stage to successfully combine design and performance criteria. Of course, the lightweight approach can also be applied to optimize existing shapes.

9% lighter

The flacons are lightweighted by 9% and made from 100% R-PET.

"L'Oréal is committed to improve the environmental footprint of our packaging for example through making them lighter, or through replacing virgin materials by recycled ones." — L'Oréal.
