Producing sustainable packaging means ensuring a proper end of life through an integration into the circular economy.
Solutions for beauty products have become far more sustainable. Glass, aluminum, post-consumer recycled resin, biodegradable pulp, plant-based adhesives and vegetable inks are just some of the options now available within the industry.
However, moving to more sustainable packaging and to mono-material in particular is still a challenge in the grand scheme of recycling and sustainability for certain products. From lotion and treatment pumps, to lipstick mechanisms, the small multi-material complex parts needed to create an ergonomic product and a consumer-friendly experience can potentially be detrimental to the recycling process.
Aptar Beauty partnered with Eva Lagarde from re/sources – an external expert and opinion leader on Sustainability to co-write a White Paper on the contribution of dispensing and packaging solutions, and how the development of these products contributes to the circular economy. Eva’s expertise in this topic was important to ensure we are continually challenging ourselves and the collective packaging industry to ensure we are all doing our part.
“Our commitment to a true circularity model is a main pillar of our sustainability strategy. By partnering with experts like Eva Lagarde, we are able to leverage this learning internally and share externally in hopes of inspiring the packaging industry.” Beth Holland, Vice President, Global Sustainability
This White Paper aims to address the solutions that are on the horizon to reduce environmental impact, and help the beauty industry become more sustainable.
