Spadel and DS Smith launch a new 5 litre package that has been innovatively designed to ensure it’s not only practical, but sustainable too. The respective market leaders, who specialize in natural mineral water and sustainable packaging solutions, joined forces to create the Eco Pack. The octagonal box comprises of cardboard and a flexible inside plastic bag that has room for 5 litres of liquid. Its efficient use of materials enables a 65% reduction in plastic* while also extending the waters shelf life.
The octagonal 5L Eco Pack is the latest innovation flowing from Spadel and DS Smith’s partnership over the last decade. As a B-Corp certified company, Spadel consistently seeks new ways to reduce its environmental footprint. DS Smith helped Spadel find and tailor its ideal packaging solution using their PackRight approach. This is a collaborative, four-step development process: starting with gaining insights, then moving on to pack development, testing and implementation. DS Smith’s Supply Cycle Thinking guided Spadel every step of the way to identify specific needs and optimize their 5L SPA® Reine Eco Pack.
The SPA® Reine Eco Pack is 100% recyclable and convenient for daily use because of its innovative design. The pack is made from smart brown materials, which use unbleached and uncoated cardboard to minimize the amount of fiber used. Where colour is added to the cardboard, only water-based inks are applied. Furthermore, the octagonal design not only reduces the total amount of cardboard used, but also makes it easy, safe and efficient to stack the 5L Eco Packs up to 6 levels high without requiring additional pallets within the supply chain. Both the cardboard, inside plastic bag and tap materials were designed to ensure that people at home can easily separate and recycle them.
