Tubes and their contribution to greater sustainability

Sustainability is no longer just a trend for the packaging industry, but an obligation when it comes to developing product solutions. The challenge is to balance aesthetics and design with solutions that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The use of tubes instead of conventional plastic packaging reduces the raw material requirements of a package and thus makes a significant contribution to reducing the CO2 footprint. In addition, unlike other packaging, tubes can be emptied almost completely. This facilitates environmentally friendly recycling.
