UK HDPE milk bottle manufacturer Nampak Plastics has obtained two environmental awards – a Gold Star by National Recycling Stars and the Sustainable Product Development of the Year Award at the CIWM Environmental Excellence Awards 2012.
National Recycling Stars chose Nampak because of its commitment to increasing the amount of waste it recycles as well as its attempts to improve the environmental awareness of its staff.
The firm won the Sustainable Product Development of the Year Award for the Infini bottle, which contains up to 25% less plastic than the standard design and uses up to 15% recycled material.
Eric Collins, managing director of Nampak Plastics, said: “We are thrilled with these latest awards and feel it is a real credit to the level of commitment Nampak has invested into research and development to remain a sustainable organisation.
“Helping to reduce the environmental impact of packaging is something that everyone throughout the supply chain has a responsibility for. At Nampak we are doing our bit to help reduce the impact of milk bottles and ensure the minimum goes to landfill.”
