CANNING PLASTIC ON MULTIPACKS – WHAT IF EVERYONE FOLLOWED TESCO’S LEAD?
There was great news last week on the food & beverage industry’s ongoing fight for environmental sustainability, as Tesco announced its stores are to ditch 67 million pieces of plastic from multipack cans, eliminating 350 tonnes of plastic from the environment.
While neither NicheSolutions nor any of our brewery customers are quite on the scale of the supermarket giant, we’re still determined to promote new ways to do business by investing in innovative, energy-efficient projects with low impact on the environment.
It’s great to report that so many breweries have chosen to ditch plastic can holders and adopt our eco-friendly Nc6 can holders – just one new, cost-effective way to make a difference. Tyne Bank Brewery recently joined the groundbreaking Hammerton Brewery, Deviant & Dandy, Purity Brewing and Brixton Brewery in taking up the recycled, fully biodegradable can holders – with yet more breweries set to join the movement this year.
– Nc6 can holders are UK’s first 100% eco-friendly six-pack holders are made from 100% recycled wood pulp, which in turn is 100% biodegradable
– They have earned the prestigious DIN CERTO certificate of compostability
– Even beyond the problem of landfill sites and oceans filling up with plastic, the old-fashioned plastic 6-pack holders pose an extra hazard to birds and animals. That’s why many consumers now snip them with scissors before disposal
Whether you’re a brewer producing cans of beer or a consumer drinking them, it surely makes sense to stop using plastic can holders. Why add to the planet’s mounting plastic waste problem?
NicheSolutions’ Nc6 six-pack can holders fit 330cl, 440cl and 500cl cans, and are priced at 23p each. Ask about the can holders when you’re placing your next order!
