Sustainability


We manufacture plastic jars, plastic lids and plastic packaging. As a specialist in plastics, we aim to make a difference by reducing our environmental burden or ‘ecological footprint’.

This is achieved by manufacturing durable plastic jars, using bio-plastics for plastic packaging, recycling plastic materials, making efficient use of materials, and developing new shapes and new materials.

But we do more.
We focus our efforts on socially responsible business practices, being involved in society, and ensuring that we continue to have a healthy and livable earth. Plasticjars.co.uk is willing to stick its neck out, even if this requires extra attention and effort.

Sustainability and responsible consumption. It begins with the design, and manufacturing, transporting and recycling of plastic pots. Or other things, like having an efficient workplace and production centre.

Start small, big impact
Even small decisions can have a positive impact. They do not always require a lot of time, effort or money.

How do we do this in practice? Plastic jars form the foundation. And there are many ways to design, manufacture and distribute these plastic jars:

  • Office and warehouse: green electricity, fair trade coffee, and recycled office furniture, recycled company clothes, and even re-using building materials: we use recycled bitumen felt for the roofs of our warehouse.
  • Transport. Company cars that have a green ‘A label’.
  • Quality at a fair price.
  • Location. The new location was completed at the end of 2012. Our new central distribution center is situated in the north part of the Netherlands (Zuidbroek, Groningen, near the German border). The benefits: more space, less time in traffic jams and more efficient transport kilometres, also across the border. In this way, we offer a contribution to the local economy and the environment.
  • Development. Our sister company, PackagingLab invents and designs plastic pots, with a long lifecycle, and by using better materials like bio-plastics, and re-using synthetic materials in plastic pots.
  • Teamwork. Experience according to Plasticpotten.nl: rehabilitation workplaces and workplace integration for people with a disadvantage in the labour market. They receive support from a fixed team of specialists in the field of plastic pots. This initiative commenced in 2013 at our central distribution centre, and proved to be an instant success. Result: a horizontal, lean organisation that focuses on it customers and is socially involved.
  • Smart. We know about plastic pots, and rely on other experts where the use of computer networks and hosting is concerned. We don’t have energy-wasting servers, but rely on ‘cloud’ network for our hosting.
  • Charities. Part of the profit is spent on charities like WWF and WSPA.
