Introducing The PCR10 Environmental Initiative

pcr10

We’re pleased to announce the introduction of an environmental initiative called PCR10 to selected Ampulla plastic products! The term ‘PCR’ stand for ‘post-consumer recycled’. This simply refers to any material that has served its intended use as a finished product, then has been placed in the recycling system to be remade into a new product. As part of the new PCR10 initiative, certain plastic manufacturers have committed to using PCR material to manufacture at least 10% of every HDPE and PET plastic item made in the UK in 2019.

Wherever possible, the post-consumer recycled plastic material that is used will be sourced from the UK, so that the carbon footprint generated in order to manufacture these new products is kept as small as possible. The PCR10 initiative is very warmly welcomed by Ampulla and all those who are increasingly aware of the impact that single use plastic is having on our planet. We do hope that manufacturers continue to innovate products and inspire consumers to make positive changes, and we here at Ampulla will continue to promote these efforts!

Why Is PCR10 An Important Step?

  • It encourages responsible plastic manufacturing;
  • It reduces plastic waste;
  • It gives greater choice to consumers;
  • It reduces your company’s carbon footprint.

PCR10 Products Stocked By Ampulla

Currently, Ampulla has two products available that are part of the PCR10 initiative:

All listings for the products above are now made using the PCR material, regardless of which cap options you choose.

If you think that this selection is paltry, don’t get too worried – many of our current HDPE and PET products will also be phased out and replaced with the new identical PCR10 models once the old stock has been used! Please do keep an eye out for information on PCR10 products in our product descriptions to see which products are part of this group.

Come To The Dark Side… We Have Black Plastic Bottles!

For a sleek, sophisticated cosmetic product, look no further than our Black Plastic Bottles – they’re out of this world! They are made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, which is fully recyclable, lightweight and robust, making them ideal for packaging lotions, serums, sprays and much more. Best of all, they are compatible with a wide variety of different caps, including screw caps, atomisers, disc tops, flip tops, trigger sprays and lotion pumps, which gives you the option of many types of dispensation. Whether you’re packaging a hair spray that needs to be sprayed in a fine mist, or a moisturiser that needs to be squeezed out, we’ve got the right bottle and cap for you.

Suitable For Many Different Industries

These black plastic bottles come in a variety of sizes ranging from 50ml up to an astronomical 1 litre, making the range suitable for storing small amounts of luxury cosmetics and large amounts of industrial scale cleaning products alike. The possibilities go on and on, from car care and cleaning products, to hair products and toiletries.

Minimalist Style

Black is a colour of elegance, mystery and sophistication, and these glossy black bottles simply ooze these characteristics. They look inconspicuous in home bathrooms as well as in luxury hotel rooms! The dark side is much more fun…

Recyclable Material

PET plastic is fully recyclable, however many councils cannot currently collect black PET plastic packaging, as the dark pigment in the material makes it difficult for automatic sorting machines to recognise it and it ends up going to landfill. We recommend finding a specialist black PET plastic recycling company to refer your customers to when they have finished with any product that you have packaged in the bottles, or you could upcycle instead of recycle. What is upcycling? It’s taking a used object and giving it a new lease of life – for instance, you could make your empty bottles into a DIY bird feeder, a vase or use them in arts and crafts activities with the kids!

Still Not Convinced?

If you don’t want to take our word for it, then just let our customers’ photos do the talking for the high quality of our Black Plastic Bottles! Skinderella uses these bottles for their range of facial beauty products made for GlossGods, with the simple white labelling making this brand striking and oozing a luxury feel.
