RECKLI is switching to waste cardboard instead of PU filling foam for packaging materials. The previously used filling foam which was made of polyurethane has now been replaced by shredded waste cardboard.
We do not only attach importance to reusability for our structural matrices, but also for our product packaging of liquid plastics. Therefore, since March 2022, we have been using recycled cardboard instead of filling foam for packaging and shipping our products. The main reason for this is that it is easier for customers to dispose of the products, as the switch to cardboard inlays reduces the volume of the product to be disposed of many times over.
The filling material previously used was PU foam, which expands in a small bag. These bags were then included in the packaging to protect the products.
The new cardboard inlays are also made from 100% recycled waste paper, making them a sustainable alternative to conventional packaging materials. With the help of the custom-made cardboard inlays, we offer secure shipping and protect our products during transport. Currently, all 5 kg buckets and containers are shipped with the cardboard inlays - paper is also used as a filling material for all other products. The previously used foam pads are no longer used.
