European Union keeps strengthening legislation by establishing new regulations, with mandatory execution from July 2024, that all the single-use plastic bottles that contain a plastic cap can only be introduced in the EU market if the cap itself is attached to the bottle. The task is to reduce plastic pollution in the world.
We think that it is a great idea and a big step towards reducing plastic waste and encouraging recycle. So, we decided not to wait till the deadline for this regulation to become mandatory and together with plastic caps supplier developed a new tethered cap, which remains attached to the bottle even after opening.
We’ll start using new caps for all ALEO products, from now on, and can use such caps for all the private label products if it would be such a request.
