Leading wet wipe manufacturer, Nice-Pak, has declared that plastic-free, sustainable products will feature in every customer proposal from 2020.
The pledge is one of six new commitments which mark a step-change in the company’s already-well developed sustainability programme.
Nice-Pak’s Global Sustainability Pledges also include strong commitments on packaging, brand transparency, and a responsible and cautious approach to monitoring chemicals of concern.
The company will also report annually on their customers’ ’Do Not Flush’ compliance. This will underline its commitment to the agreed industry labelling code of practice and actively encourage consumers to dispose of wet wipes appropriately.
Publication of the Sustainability Pledges coincides with Nice-Pak launching what it calls the ‘ultimate in sustainable baby wipes’. Its new ‘Nice ‘n Clean Aqualettes’ brand features plastic-free wipes, a pre-biotic formula and 100 per cent recyclable packaging.
Michael Staton, Nice-Pak International CEO, said: “We wanted to take our sustainability efforts to the next level through a series of significant commitments which will apply to our businesses across the globe. Our product development programme reflects the fact that we are fully aligned with customers and consumers on the global significance of environmental issues.
“In Europe, the launch of ‘Nice ‘n Clean Aqualettes’ demonstrates the progress we are making in bringing these principles to life.
“This unique combination of materials from sustainable sources, natural ingredients and recyclable packaging is the result of creativity and determination by our team to ensure we lead the sector in care for the environment.”
