All Sulapac materials have been designed to be recycled via industrial composting, but unfortunately the recycling infrastructure and legislation around it varies between countries. The collection, processing and regulatory framework are currently in the development phase. However, we can’t just wait and see what happens. We have to act now. Our mindset, since the beginning, has been to solve problems. We can’t wait. We have to act now. Thus, we are developing a take back system. This is our pilot together with Vida, Karhumuovi and Ruohonjuuri.
‘Vida Kuulas’ packaging is made of bio-based Sulapac material. The empty jars will be returned to Ruohonjuuri that then delivers them to Karhumuovi. There, the recycled r-Sulapac material is used for ‘Naturn Riite’ urns. No permanent microplastics will be released during or after this cycle.
