HD-PE bottles made from 100% recycled materials

HD-PE bottle for cleaning products made from 100% recycled materials. A pioneering achievement.
A translucent and white material for the first time ever. True recycling and conservation of finite resources.

The HD-PE bottle is produced by extrusion blow-molding, is made of 100% recycled material, obtained from recyclable domestic refuse. A bottle to hold cleaning products. The remarkable thing is that up to now no translucent and white material has ever been produced from recyclable domestic refuse. Conventional PE recyclates do not achieve those qualities. The jury praised the pioneering work in real recycling and conservation of finite resources – and packaging bottles which look almost identical to those made from virgin material. The jury also appreciated the way the original appearance and quality of the bottles has been maintained without compromising product safety.
