Recycled paper packaging is ideal for our products. It protects the glass, looks beautiful and is very green. The waste is equivalent to throwing a toilet paper tube in your recycling bin. Pretty much guilt-free.
Kitchener, Ontario (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Just in time for the holidays! Cocoon Apothecary, Canada's organic skin care company, has introduced an eco-friendly solution for protecting their glass bottles - post-consumer paper tubes that are recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
These beautiful linen tubes are as good for the earth as the sustainable glass bottles they're protecting. They have the look and feel of luxury but can be thrown in a compost or recycle bin. Made with 95% post-consumer paper, these tubes do not contribute to the mass deforestation happening on a global scale for pulp and paper.
'The new packaging is ideal for our products. It protects the glass, looks beautiful and is very green." says Cocoon Apothecary founder Jessica Burman. "The waste is equivalent to throwing a toilet paper tube in your recycling bin. Pretty much guilt-free."
In an industry riddled with plastic packaging that ends up in a landfill, Cocoon Apothecary offers a refreshing alternative with their sustainable glass bottles, corn labels, vegetable inks and 95% post-consumer paper tubes.
