Post-consumer-recycled is one of the buzzwords of 2019. LageenTubes offers tubes in food grade resin that can be produced with up to 50%PCR in the tube sleeve.
PCR tubes are available in either Mono, two or multi layer tubes and benefit from the same characteristics and properties as a standard PE tube.
LageenTubes' PCR tubes can also benefit from direct-to-shape digital printing.
The company's bio-plastic sugarcane tubes have been on the market for many years.
The tubes are produced using 100% virgin PE which has been derived from sugarcane.
In addition to being a bio-material, sugarcane offers a very low carbon footprint emission as it metabolizes more CO2 to grow than most plants and trees do.
These innovative tubes combine a special blend of PCR with sugarcane for a very eco-friendly packaging option.
The combination of recycled plastic with bio-plastic material, that is manufactured through sustainable production processes makes the Inno-Greenpack Tube a truly green offering.
Fortified Mineral Tubes
LageenTubes' fortified mineral tubes are made of calcium mineral and like the company's other green tube options, they are ideal for personal care, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
