From waste to wonder with packaging made from recycled plastic.
Acting for its Swedish sister company Hasselfors Garden, Kekkilä wanted to market a series of 100% organic fertilisers for consumers. Organic fertiliser should naturally be contained in packaging with zero environmental impact, or at least as little as possible. Dijkstra Plastics was asked for its input in this process. The objective was to develop an environmentally-friendly bucket, the quality of which would not be inferior to a bucket made of virgin material.
In close collaboration with a number of leading parties in the world of plastic recycling, Dijkstra Plastics has come up with a series of PCR colours of which a consistent quality is guaranteed. The PCR materials that Dijkstra Plastics uses for the production of packaging buckets all meet specific requirements in terms of impact resistance, odour, availability, etc. Kekkilä has opted for a series of square cappuccino-coloured buckets in combination with an IML label in paper-look motif. A beautiful result! Both the bucket, lid and carrying handle are made from 100% recycled material. With the use of PCR material, CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 90%. And the empty bucket can, of course, be used for other applications before it is recycled again. With this, Kekkilä contributes to promoting a circular economy.
"A great example of how a collaboration with the customer can result in a sustainable yet beautiful solution for the product and environment"Joram Knol,
