An additional push towards sustainability through PET material

31th October 2023

Faca Packaging

Faca Packaging has developed PET jars and dispensers, which can reach a high thickness (≥ 10mm) while maintaining impeccable transparency with a neutral tone. In cosmetics, transparency not only allows consumers to see the product inside the packaging, but also creates an aesthetic experience that translates into a perception of high quality.

In addition to the transparency, luxury and quality characteristics offered by jars and dispensers made from thick-walled PET and rPET, there is another essential aspect that reinforces its position in the industry: local manufacturing. In an increasingly globalized world, local production not only has economic benefits, but also has a positive impact on the environment and local communities.

By opting for local manufacturing of jars and dispensers, companies can significantly reduce their carbon footprint by minimizing emissions associated with long-distance transportation of goods. Furthermore, by supporting local production, economic growth in nearby communities and industrialization are encouraged, which in turn generates qualified jobs.

Likewise, by working closely with local manufacturers, a supplier-customer relationship is established that favors and stimulates the processes of innovation and development of new products, as well as the implementation of sustainable and ethical practices in the production and marketing process.

In the beverage and consumer goods market, PET has long been one of the most used materials, among other reasons due to the possibility of recovery and reuse for new containers. In fact, it is considered one of the most recyclable plastics, given that the packaging used by the consumer can be recycled and reintroduced into the value chain.

Eco-design, which Faca Packaging has been applying to the development of new products for years, culminating in the range of PET containers. The possibility of using these materials, recyclable and recycled, joins the refillable functionality of the packaging. Finally, the different decorative techniques offered allow for finished containers that appeal to the senses.

PET and rPET jars and dispensers are significantly lighter, reducing transportation costs. And as far as the carbon footprint is concerned, the advantage is even greater compared to other materials such as glass, since both the energy used in manufacturing and the associated emissions are lower. Faca Packaging has also embraced the concept of refillability across the range of jars. This provides brands and consumers with the possibility of reducing packaging waste and promoting more sustainable consumption practices.
