Protecting the environment through innovative packaging

Thinking about tomorrow, today

As a forward-thinking business, the Reedbut Group understands the need for commitment to the environment to ensure both economic and environmental sustainability. Our environmental policy and actions underpin the quality of the product and service that we deliver; through continuous monitoring, we are able to reduce our environmental impact.

We work with our customers, suppliers and external agencies to reduce our impact on the environment, constantly reviewing how we operate in our plant and offices. The Reedbut Group FSC certification allows us to identify, purchase and use wood, paper, and other forest products made with materials from well-managed forests and recycled sources.

The Circular Economy

 

The strongest trends in the packaging industry all revolve around the Circular Economy – get used to that phrase, it’s here to stay!  The eco system is falling apart around us and we understand that green credentials are a necessity to live and not to apply as a “green wash” of empty promises.  To that effect, we follow the principles of the circular economy.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

It’s about building more with less and preserving our eco system. Working with our customers’ journey from product conception to customer opening, we ensure that the handling packaging has either been recycled or is FSC certified, and in order to continue the eco chain, the post-consumer packaging also fulfils the list of requirements of the circular economy.  For example:

  • bio-degradable ink,
  • ability to keep clean
  • eco-friendly labelling

In November 2021, we wrote a detailed article about the Circular Economy following learnings we picked up from COP26.  We are experts in the field of creating innovative packaging which can tick all the boxes.  Let us help you create a more sustainable way of packaging your products and prevent you from spinning around in circles!

 

Kinder and cleaner practices at the Reedbut Group

 

Minimising pollution through the efficient use of materials, supplies and energy is at the heart of our environmental policy.  Already we have reduced the energy used in heating our manufacturing facility by returning the warm air drawn from the machines when the waste is being extracted.

Furthermore, our factories are fitted with motion sensory lights and we have installed electric car charging ports for staff and visiting guests.

Over our three manufacturing sites, we ensure that all waste materials are recycled.

 

Learn more about how we are investing in reducing our carbon footprint through both our material choices and the ink and water we use.

Innovative packaging whilst protecting the environment

There’s no need to compromise on quality, durability, design or impact when it comes to your packaging.  We will continue to learn and adapt our design and manufacturing processes to ensure all of your product and eco needs are met, whilst protecting the environment.
