Our parent company, Crown Paints, has recently launched a brand-new plastic paint container made from 100 per cent recycled plastic.
Crown is the first paint manufacturer in the UK to do so and we couldn’t be more proud to play our part in reducing the amount of plastic going to landfill.
The new plastic 2.5 litre, 5 litre and 10 litre containers are rolling out across Crown Paints’ retail range before being introduced to selected products in the Sandtex range in the coming months.
The innovative manufacturing process, developed together with packaging solutions expert Emballator, involves separating polypropylene plastics such as shampoo bottles, yoghurt pots, plastic water bottles and even elements from household appliances from unusable plastic waste. Once sorted, the PCW plastic is turned into individual pellets which are then dyed to a dark grey shade and moulded.
The paint containers, which are also fully recyclable once empty and clean, are the ideal choice for today’s environmentally conscious consumers.
