Bübchen relies entirely on recyclates

03.05.2022

According to the manufacturer of baby and children's care products, its packaging is made exclusively from recyclates.


Since the beginning of the year, the bottles in which Bübchen offers its products have been made 100 percent from HDPE recyclate, according to the company. The recyclate would be supplied by Remondis and came from the dual system. According to the two companies, the cooperation between Bübchen and Remondis to recycle and reuse recycled plastics also includes licensing Bübchen sales packaging by Remondis subsidiary Eko-Punkt. Having become waste after use, this and other packaging would be collected by Remondis via the yellow garbage cans and yellow sacks. The material would then be sorted according to plastic type and color. The recycling of HDPE packaging into HDPE recyclate was carried out by Remondis subsidiary RE Plano GmbH. In addition, Bübchen says it has also been involved in the "Forum Rezyklat" since 2022, an alliance along the entire value chain consisting of retailers, product and packaging manufacturers, dual systems, waste disposal and recycling companies, and representatives from science and politics.
