Hi-Cone launches PCR ring carriers

Plastics packaging supplier Hi-Cone has developed RingCycles, a ring carrier packaging product made using more than 50 per cent post-consumer recycled resin.

The development forms part of the company’s commitment to eliminate 100 per cent of its virgin plastics-based ring carriers from its portfolio by the end of 2020. “This launch represents a significant milestone in our sustainability journey, technology innovation and material development,” said Shawn Welch, general manager and vice president of Hi-Cone Worldwide.

Welch added that “RingCycles is an exciting step for us as we develop more effective ways to reduce and recycle plastics packaging within the beverage industry, as well as innovative ways to keep it in use and out of the environment. We are making significant investments in resources and material research to continue to develop the most sustainable and commercially viable solutions available on the market.”
