New pet balm tube made with recycled resins
Burt’s Bees Paw & Nose Lotion introduces its new tube packaging featuring a layer of post-consumer recycled (PCR) material inside the tube, manufactured by Berry Plastics (berryplastics.com). This gentle lotion is formulated to tap into nature’s power to fight dogs’ dry, painful paw pads and nose skin, using ingredients such as rosemary, olive oil and jojoba.
This tube contains a maximum of 62% PCR in a package that does not typically utilize recycled content. This PCR content allows the tube to meet all the same quality, performance, and processing standards as tubes without recycled content. Non-FDA approved PCR was used in all layers of the tube body except the layer that contacts the product inside, which contains only virgin material. HDPE PCR was blended with LLDPE to create the same bounce back, shape recovery, and burst strength as non-PCR tubes. This tube adds to Burt's Bees' already extensive portfolio of packaging containing recycled material.
