Quadpack will launch a new compostable, reusable, and recyclable cosmetics packaging format next year.

Dubbed Eco-warrior, it will initially be available in 100ml bottles from 2020, with 50ml and 30ml versions being investigated as well, the company says.

“Quadpack’s Eco-warrior is a new concept that responds to the winds of change – a full pack with the minimum amount of components where the cap could be both composted and recycled.

“Aiming to be respectful to the environment, Eco-warrior is made of a slim glass bottle that makes the pack 13 per cent lighter than a regular one, reducing carbon footprint in transportation while keeping resistance,” said Quadpack.

The screw neck allows the pump to easily be separated from the bottle, which Quadpack says makes it simple to recycle and reuse both the aluminium and glass components, while the one-piece cap is made of cork from sustainably managed forests.

“In order to limit the number of manipulations and enhance refilling at the right dosage, the Eco-warrior bottle can be directly engraved with the liquid capacity, avoiding the need for a sticker or another component to indicate volume,” said Quadpack.
