Global dispensing, drug delivery and active packaging solutions company AptarGroup has partnered with TerraCycle’s circular shopping platform Loop.

According to the agreement, AptarGroup Food + Beverage president Marc Prieur will sit on Loop’s advisory board.

Using Loop’s online platform, customers can buy products in reusable packaging and have them collected, cleaned, refilled and reused, thereby eliminating disposable, single-use shipping materials.

Aptar‘s lotion pumps are currently used for a range of products available on Loop’s online shopping platform.

AptarGroup president and CEO Stephan Tanda said: “We are pleased to partner with TerraCycle on the Loop e-commerce platform for reusable consumer products.

“This partnership represents our vision and our customers’ vision for a more circular economy where packaging does not become waste. By joining Loop’s advisory board, and through further collaboration with the world’s leading brands, we can work together to better design products for reuse.”
