The environmental sustainability of the Insight projects does not stop at the formulas, but also embraces the packaging world.
Recycled PET, OUR CHOICE
PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a lightweight and durable polyester which thanks to its infinite recycling possibilities, possesses an excellent profile from the viewpoint of environmental sustainability. PET belongs to the family of thermoplastics, materials that are transformed by heat into very viscous liquids that are easily worked: they return to the solid state when the temperature is lowered. Since their structure does not undergo modifications, the material can be subjected more than once to remodelling processes using heat: this characteristic of PET makes it 100% Recyclable and it becomes possible to transform it into rPET: we chose to use 100% post-consumer recycled PET for all bottles and jars of the INSIGHT line.
CAPS – All caps of Insight jars are made of 100% recycled PP.
TUBES – Our tubes are made of a biobased material derived from sugar cane.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO USE RECYCLED PET?
• Protect the environment;
• Reduce carbon dioxide emissions: for every kg of recycled PET up to 3kg of CO2 are spared!
• Save energy: by manufacturing products from recycled PET it is possible to achieve a 50% energy savings, reducing costs and limiting harm to the environment.
