Sticky solution

Smurfit Kappa developed the pack, which uses a cartridge body that can be cut away and recycled with domestic collections and a nozzle and plunger made from biodegradable plastics.

Greengrab is an instant-grab adhesive, while Greenseal is a bathroom sealant. John Griffiths, product manager for Evo-Stik says: “Despite the current economic climate, green issues remain high on the consumer agenda. Our new “green” range is the beginning of Bostik’s journey towards a more sustainable product offering. To realise these products we had to source environmentally friendly packaging. Here, Smurfit Kappa stepped in to provide the perfect solution.”

Keith Nichol, general manager at Smurfit Kappa Composites says: “We worked in close partnership with Bostik to source and develop an innovative product offering. Our FSC certified, recyclable and durable paper-based cartridges are designed to keep the product in perfect condition within the supply chain, while ticking the right environmental boxes.”
