Check this out 👀 a glass bottle with a plastic lid that can’t be separated both now heading to landfill 🙁.

We talk a lot about ‘designing out waste’ and are worried to see the apparent need (see our Paper Water Bottle Friday Feature) to be reminding brand owners, designers and manufacturers to consider how easily separated the design of your packaging is too!

At Waipak, our experienced, environment conscious Team wear our sustainability hats throughout the whole process and will always trial aspects like this. The question is, do you?

P.S – We’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts on what would happen if this product was ‘wishcycled’ through curbside collections and successfully entered a recycling facility what would be most likely to happen…..would it be tossed for landfill, or smashed like other glass products and separated from the plastic lid? 🤔
