Scanstrut is to make all of its product packaging recyclable and from renewable, recycled or certified sources by 2020.

The company says it takes its global environmental impact seriously and is proactively taking these steps to eliminate single use materials.

“This is an important step in our commitment to reducing the impact our packaging makes on the planet,” said Scanstrut MD Tom Reed. “Our products are used in so many incredible outdoor environments and we must do our bit, however small on a global scale, to preserve these places.

Paper-based tray

“We can’t do it alone but at least we can start and hope that others may follow.”

The first packaging to change is that of the company’s ROKK starter kits with the internal packaging featuring a recycled paper-based tray, instead of plastic.

Existing outer cardboard cartons across most of its product line have been 100% recyclable since the end of 2017.

“Scanstrut is confident that this change will see more packaging recycled across the 47 countries we currently sell into,” added Tom. “Taking this step will see us convert more than 10 tonnes of non-recyclable material annually into recyclable material, doing our bit to help with the UK’s recycling target of 65% of all waste by 2030.”
