Flexible pouches have emerged as the preferred packaging solution in many industries, with our Ready2Recycle mono material pouches being a particularly popular option. Scrubbington’s refill pouches were among the first large-scale refillable projects we worked on, attracted by the sustainability benefits that our pack format offers. So, what is the role of refill pouches?
Compared to other rigid packaging solutions, refill pouches offer a 78-82% saving on plastic, as well as savings on water and energy usage. While some brands have been hesitant to switch to flexible pouches due to the challenges of packing liquids, they are 100% recyclable and can serve as a unique selling point for your products.
We understand the importance of designing packaging for maximum recyclability, which is why we recommend PE/PE pouches. These pouches feature a mono-material structure that allows for easy recycling. Polyethylene printed film is laminated to another layer of polyethylene for added strength and durability.
Refill pouches are an excellent way to reduce waste and promote sustainability. By providing consumers with a refill option, these pouches can significantly reduce the amount of packaging waste that ends up in landfills or oceans. Many refill pouches are made from recyclable or compostable materials, further reducing their environmental impact.
Large refill pouches are a convenient solution for busy households, eliminating the need to worry about running out of shower gel or shampoo. Customers can store these pouches safely in their cupboards and top up their dispensers whenever needed. Switching to refillable pouches for your products could help households eliminate the equivalent of 84kg of single-use and unrecyclable plastic waste per year.
Refill pouches are not just popular in the cosmetic industry; other industries, such as alcohol, are also adopting them. Refillable alcohol pouches offer sustainability benefits over glass bottles, which are heavier and more prone to breakage. They also offer cost savings for producers, which can translate to savings for consumers as well.
In conclusion, The Role of Refill Pouches is an important one and they have gained popularity during the pandemic and are here to stay. The demand for sustainable packaging solutions is growing every day, and we are committed to providing our customers with the most environmentally friendly options available.
