CASE STUDY: A STURDY, FUNCTIONAL AND RECYCLABLE FLIP-TOP CLOSURE
Greenspeed, the B2B spin-off of the renown ECOVER brand, was looking for a convenient closure to use across their range of Cradle-to-Cradle Certified industrial cleaning and handwash products. The closure needed to offer convenient one-handed opening and withstand the shocks and vibrations that can occur during the product’s life cycle.
Just like all other components, the closure had to fit into the Cradle-to-Cradle process, in which the main goals are to reduce waste, re-use raw materials and recycle products to make the material’s life cycle fully circular. Therefore, the closure had to respect the rules of ecodesign as a first challenge. The second challenge was on the supply chain side, with the need for flexible deliveries with short lead times.
We looked for a monomaterial closure in natural colour to enable smooth recycling over and over again. Thanks to our reliable manufacturing partners and experienced packaging experts, we were able to propose a closure which fulfils recyclability needs while offering the required strength and convenience.
This, combined with our spacious local storage facilities close to the customer, made GAASCH PACKAGING the perfect partner for Greenspeed on this project.
The outcome is a flip-top PP closure in natural colour, which contains no toxic ingredients, is stress-cracking resistant, robust for transportation and convenient. Greenspeed keeps on choosing this GAASCH PACKAGING solution over and over for the performance throughout the supply chain and in the recycling streams. We assist Greenspeed in establishing forecasts and keep inventory of the components close to the customer’s filling site to guarantee smooth deliveries.
