LIFE CYCLE
OF THE PACKAGING

At Ferrer, we have reduced the environmental impact
of packaging at each stage of its life.

MATERIALS

MONO-MATERIAL

All the elements of one single item of packaging are made of Polypropylene. 25% of this comes from post-industrial recycled pellets.

WEIGHT

The weight has been reduced by an average of 38%. This means the lid is up to 81% lighter.

LABELS

The packaging is labelled rather than printed. The labels are also made of polypropylene, making it easier to recycle the whole packaging.

NO BOX AND NO PACKAGE INSERT

If it is not possible to do away with the box, thinner cardboard has been used, with FSC certification (responsible forest management).

TRANSPORT

LOCAL SUPPLIERS

We work with material suppliers who are less than 50 km away from the production factory, thereby reducing CO2 emissions.

PRODUCTION

FEWER PRODUCTION STAGES

As the packaging does not have to be boxed, we reduce energy use, costs and time. The same packaging can also be used for several products (only the label is different), which means that there is no packaging surplus and no obsolete packaging.

DISTRIBUTION

PRODUCT PER PACKING BOX

For certain products, we have managed to distribute up to twice as many products in the same number of packing boxes.

PRODUCT

“MEMORY EFFECT”
PACKAGING

The new designs of the packaging make it easier to get all the product out, so it can be used fully with no waste.

RECYCLING

100% RECYCLABLE

When it comes to the end of its useful life, the ecodesigned packaging is easier and more convenient to recycle.
