“EPL has been leading the pack in sustainable innovations and we will continue to support leading brands in launching products in recyclable tube packaging.

“This is in line with our commitment towards a sustainable environment.”

The Platina tubes are recyclable in the Code Two plastic stream, which processes high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

The US Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) has also certified the Platina 250, 300 and 350 Lamitubes as meeting or surpassing its high-density polyethylene critical guidance criteria on recyclability.

As well as being recyclable, the tubes are designed to help consumer goods brands expedite their sustainability efforts by reducing plastic use across their operations.

Vicco Labs director Deep Pendharkar said: “We are happy to lead the sustainability agenda and convert to recyclable packaging.

“This step is a way forward in order to achieve our sustainability commitments. EPL remains our partner of choice for innovative and sustainable tube packaging.”

EPL currently sells around seven billion tubes a year, operating 19 facilities across 11 countries.
