PCR plastic tubes help cut carbon footprint


M&H Plastics adds PCR tubes

M&H Plastics has added PCR (post consumer recycled) flexible plastic tubes to its range of environmentally responsible products. The polyethylene tube sleeve is made from 50% PCR material, while the shoulder is made from 100% recycled and re-processed plastic. The process helps reduce environmental impact and supports manufacturers in their commitment to lowering their carbon footprint, says M&H. For customers requiring sustainable packaging the company also offers PIR (post industrial regrind), PLA (polylactic acid) and biodegradable materials.
