Paving and walling specialist makes sustainable packaging investment

PAVING and walling manufacturer Tobermore has announced the business has invested in more sustainable packaging.

The business has overhauled its packaging design to have ‘significantly less’ environmental impact. The fully recyclable polyethylene film contains 30% recycled material and has now been rolled out throughout stocking merchants and building sites across the country.

David Henderson, MD of Tobermore, said, “We are proud to have invested in more sustainable packaging. Tobermore recognises the global challenge of packaging waste and consequently the need for a new plastic economy. To ensure we can retain the benefits of plastic, we had to rethink how we produce, use and re-use it.

“As a responsible manufacturer, Tobermore is committed to safeguarding future resources, reducing waste and saving energy. We have a responsibility to make sure that we keep plastic within a circular economy and out of our natural environment. We feel good about using packaging which is better for our planet and urge our industry peers to rethink their packaging also.”
