CurTec containers have always been a great sustainable solution for applications where a re-usable system is preferred. CurTec drums are now part of a shopping and recycling concept for diapers and feminine care products.
Since last year, CurTec has been partnering with industry leader TerraCycle based in Trenton, NJ on developing a sustainable solution for recycling diapers and feminine care products. Because of CurTec’s proven durability, attractive design, and user friendly features, one of our standard Total Opening Drums was selected for the first commercial pilot going on now in Paris, France.
TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste. After years of planning and testing, they have unveiled what they believe will be a revolutionary change in packaging: Loop. Debuted at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland a few weeks ago, the newly coined shopping platform is the first of its kind to offer hundreds of name brand products in reusable and refillable packaging.
P&G was the first consumer products company to join Loop. As part of the platform, Pampers and Always will test collecting used hygiene products from consumer homes for further recycling using ground-breaking proprietary technology which turns used absorbent hygiene products into secondary raw materials for higher value applications.
Loop packages are designed to handle 100 or more re-uses. Using CurTec drums allows consumers to recycle these disposable products in an environmentally responsible way. CurTec is proud to be a part of solving the many problems a single use package can create through its lifecycle.
