We Make It Easy For You To Recycle
Sukin uses PET plastic on most full size products. With its plant-based raw material structure, the PET plastic is 100% recyclable. We encourage all Sukin bottles to be recycled, as this process, allowed only through the use of PET plastic, uses less than 30% of the energy in initial production of virgin PET.
Keeping PET in use and demand means that recycling rates remain high, encouraging innovative companies to transform the refined PET recycled flakes into new and sustainable products.
Whilst the plastic pump itself is made of polypropylene, the internal workings of the pump have the usual metal springs. These springs are also recyclable and are separated during the recycling wash process before being sent to various places for re-use.
Sukin uses LDPE tubes. LDPE is recycled and is used to produce a wide range of products such as rubbish bags, floor tiles, panelling, furniture, compost bins, rubbish bins and a large number of other smaller packaging, bottles, lids etc. it has the ability to be recycled and re-processed many times over.
Sukin uses amber glass for its Moisture Restoring Night Cream and Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil products. Glass is recyclable and can be placed in most local recycle streams.
