Sustainable cleaning is only a spray away

Robert Scott has launched its latest product innovation - a sustainable alternative to its classic spray bottle, made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic resin sourced from used milk bottles.

The recycled spray bottles offer an eco-friendly and reusable way to dispense cleaning fluids without the waste and environmental impact of single-use plastic bottles, which are often made from virgin plastic. Made from 100% recycled and 100% recyclable high-density polyethene (r-HDPE), the spray bottles are manufactured in the UK and use less energy to produce than traditional bottles made from virgin resin. Designed for multi-use, they can be refilled by the end user or recycled again into car parts, pipes and clothing, supporting a closed loop recycling system. This means less waste at the end of the day while helping to reduce the UK’s plastic waste economy.

The cleaning manufacturer provides a custom bottle printing service, using screen print technology and a specially formulated UV ink that results in a colourful, permanent label. This process is not only cost-effective, but also removes the need for the secondary application of labels.

Robert Scott is also in the early stages of testing a compostable plastic packaging wrap. If successful, this would help the company to further reduce its impact on the environment.
