Glass jars instead of plastic jars? Sounds logical at first. But glass jars are much less sustainable than plastic, both in terms of production and recycling. The production of glass requires an enormous amount of energy in the form of high temperatures. Disposable glass is melted down again after use – and temperatures of approx. 1000ºC are necessary for this. In addition, the increased weight during transport leads to a worse overall balance than with plastic containers. Therefore we work together with our suppliers on a constantly growing recycling percentage for our jars and tubes.
Much more important is the correct recycling cycle. Everyone can contribute to sustainability: The primary containers (tubes, jars) should always be disposed of in the yellow bin/bag, the folding boxes in the waste paper so that they can be optimally recycled. Speaking of folding boxes: Even here we attach great importance to sustainability. That’s why they are made from FSC Mix paper and not refined with lamination.
The most important thing for us in case of doubt is product quality as well as safety and protection for products and users. Here we do not compromise, but actively seek solutions that combine sustainability and our product philosophy for the long term.
