Packaging serves a necessary function-protecting or preserving the product it contains. The material chosen for the packaging has to satisfy this basic functionality. But as products get increasingly sophisticated, more functionalities of packaging are needed and a single material may not be able to satisfy all of the requirements but problem is that the more complicated the packaging design, the lower the chance of it being recycled.
What's more no material is as difficult to differentiate as plastic. A transparent plastic can be polyethylene terephthalate (PET),polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or even general-purpose polystyrene (PS). But these plastics cannot be mechanically recycled together and have to be separated, if not the quality of the recycled PET (which has a higher recycled value) will be downgraded or even contaminated beyond reusability.
Choosing mono material design doesn't mean choosing cheap, functionless, UA redesign mono material series to match even elevate beauty brand image. Besides basic primary pack like bottle, jar, closure, UA realizes recyclable complicated pack like deodorant too.
Mono material doesn't mono design, you can achieve kinds of custom design whatever component color, print, hot stamp, matt finish coating, metallization, we have confidence that this sustainable pack won't burden your amazing design.
Mono material means entire packaging is made from individual material is ideal answer to recycling and PP/PE/PET are best options, they're recyclable thermoplastic polymer widely used in many different products already and rugged and resistant to different chemical solvents, acids, and bases. There's no need to call consumer to separate component before recycling or pack well for door to door recycling, you can tell them to put packaging into recycling bin with full confidence because it's truly 100% recyclable.
Considering mono material packaging is made from 100% recyclable material then the models can be produced with PCR material directly so you have chance to have both benefits here that 100% recyclable and 100% recycled material.
