Lightweight Containers rebrands as OneCircle

Lightweight Containers, producer of the KeyKeg and UniKeg, has changed its name to OneCircle.

The name represents the company’s ambition to create kegs that use recycled raw materials and are circular. Currently 30 per cent of a KeyKeg and UniKeg is made from recycled material thanks to the collection and recycling projects established by OneCircle that operate alongside existing waste streams.

There are now successful schemes in the Netherlands, UK, Spain, Ireland, Switzerland, France and Belgium, with more planned around the world.

OneCircle has also joined the Plastic Alliance and signed its declaration that its products meet the environmental criteria of the European Union so no additional tax needs to be levied on them.

OneCircle’s chief executive Anita Veenendaal said: “Our kegs are revolutionising the way beers and other beverages are distributed but we are committed to doing this without a cost to the environment.”
