It retains the recognizable look and feel of a traditional paper tube but now features an extra level of sustainability, without having an impact on strength, and still able to perform as a premium packaging solution creating shelf-disruption.
“We love our tubes at Smurfit Kappa Composites; the eye-catching designs, shelf presence, the premium & quality feel and robust protection – what’s not to love?” said Peter Thorpe, Sales Manager at Smurfit Kappa Composites.
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration is now open.
“But with all these fantastic attributes we recognized the need to make our tubes more easily recyclable for the consumer. We saw the world changing, consumers starting to change buying behaviours to favour sustainable packaging, so we set ourselves a stretching target under our Better Planet Packaging initiative to make a 100% recyclable tube without compromising all the original great features. And after much hard work the Smurfit Kappa Eco-Tube was created!” continued Peter.
