Giflor's 100% PCR closures

  • Giflor

Giflor’s environmentally conscious Post Consumer Resin collection revolves around the use of “recycled” materials for the sake of the planet: plastic is given a second life through the recycling stream, which aids in a reduced carbon footprint. This highly innovative and eco-friendly PCR closure collection responds to the growing demand for a circular economy and helps brands improve their sustainability credentials with 100% green packaging solutions.

WHAT IS PCR?

PCR (Post Consumer Resin) is the technical term for plastic that has already been recycled and is ready to use again. It begins with the collection and sorting of recycled products – plastic bottles or caps for example. These bottles are then separated from the other plastics, washed and cleaned of all other materials (for example the labels, bottle tops etc). The recycled plastic is then reprocessed into PCR.

PLASTIC WITH A SECOND LIFE: ALL IN ONE

The newly developed Giflor’s PCR range is 100% sustainable, colourful and certified: “ALL IN ONE“. The closures are made in unique trendy and catchy colours that provide a powerful visual and shelf impact. Among the 12 deliverable options, the most recent nuances are emerald green, primrose yellow, ketchup red and deep blue, now available to make the packaging of iconic brands even more memorable.

One particularly special colour is “Ivory”: a light clear option that makes PCR achievements as a recycled material even more stunning.

PCR STANDARDS

Giflor’s PCR closures are Reach compliant. Reach is a regulation of the European Union adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

GIFLOR’S GREEN COMMITMENT

We see a world where people love the Earth and do all they can to protect the environment. Giflor commits to be part of this green movement and acts every day to be sustainable in real with small actions improving our style of living.

Key objectives within this strategy are the reduction of plastic waste and the promotion of the recycling stream, both achieved with the development of the PCR range.

Giflor's 100% PCR closures will be featured at Packaging Innovations Birmingham, Booth #D29.
