A giant leap: a pouch with detachable decorative panelsA final touch was added to solve the issue of recycling printed plastic materials.
The pouch has two layers. "We dress the pouch up in an eye-catching 'outer garment' that is printed with brand design on the front and consumer info on the back," said Sander. "When the pouch is empty, we 'undress' it automatically by shredding and sorting the two components into separate recycling streams."
The patented pouch is now 100-percent recyclable. The material is of course free of glue or adhesive. Spout and cap are also made of polyethylene - which means the recycled material will be equivalent in quality to the original material.
