Plastics are the material of choice for food packaging due to their low cost, strong formability, light weight and biological inertness. However, the white pollution caused by plastics puts a heavy burden on the environment.
Faced with this problem of global concern, do we have a corresponding solution to partially replace it? Perhaps, the following creative paper packaging can open your mind!
Traditional beverage cartons are composited by film and paper. In order to recycle them, paper and plastic must be separated. This requires a special process that is expensive and cannot be widely used. Therefore, in the United States, only 16% of beverage cartons are recycled. In the EU Only 49% of beverage cartons are recycled.
Bruk beverage cartons are designed to solve this problem. It uses two-layer packaging, the inner packaging is HDPE plastic soft packaging, and the outer packaging is paper packaging. When recycling, consumers only need to tear the carton in half along the easy tear line to easily separate the inner and outer packaging. The process is very simple and interesting.
Bruk is as convenient and easy to use as traditional beverage cartons, but it effectively solves the recycling problem of beverage cartons and enables 100% recycling of the inner and outer packaging.
