Lakes’ new 100% recyclable packaging has been shortlisted for the UFEMAT ‘Packaging Awards’.
UFEMAT is the European association of national builders’ merchants associations and manufacturers. The awards were launched this year as a joint initiative with Valipac and FEMA to share good packaging practice and promote sustainable innovations in the European construction industry. The awards recognise sustainable packaging solutions for construction products, with entries judged on design for recycling, circularity, waste reduction and innovation.
Lakes launched its new recyclable packaging in March this year. It removes all plastic banding, carton stapling, plastic tape and polystyrene. The packaging was also improved to make it easier and safer to handle. It’s stronger too, to reduce product waste. Shortly after the launch, Lakes achieved the Carbon Neutral Standard based on an assessment of carbon emissions for its UK operation.
The winner will be announced on October 18th.
