100% recycled and recyclable packaging
Giving a second and third life to plastics is a meaningful way to contribute to expanding the concept of circular economy and decrease the amount of waste introduced into the environment. One sustainable solution is PP PCR, a post-consumer recycled plastic material, which largely retains the characteristics of virgin polypropylene.
