Why plastic is sometimes the best choice

Voges aims to make the world a greener place. The plastic packaging we produce makes it possible, for instance, to ship plants safely. Plastic? That’s right.

Google ‘plastic’ and your search results will be dominated by related environmental issues. And justifiably so. The problems are indeed huge and fully deserve the attention they receive. As a result, increasingly promising solutions are being conceived whereby a combination of partial solutions could make a great difference.

Compostable packs

Compostable where possible!

We manufactured a complete range on the basis of Ingeo™ biopolymers as early as 2003. This so-called performance plastic uses corn as a renewable raw material. This type of packaging is 100% degradable.

Today, however, it is more of a fine promise than an effective solution.

On the one hand this is because the packaging nearly always ends up with other plastic waste to be either processed or burnt, and on the other hand because there is insufficient availability in the market to meet the current demand.

Recycling lasts longest

Voges produces packaging made from recycled PET plastic. To do this we closely collaborate with our supplier 4PET Recycling, which processes 150 tons of Post Consumer Waste a day. How does it work?

Colours
Because we work with recycled plastic, the colour intensity of our packaging varies.

Zero waste
If you work with plastic there will be plastic waste. Everything that is left - each and every bit of it - is collected by us and offered to our recycled PET plastic producer for reuse.

Smart design

More with less

Voges invests in smart industrial design. Using ingenious designs, we produce ultra-thin packaging that retains its protective qualities. Less plastic is always good.

Motivate

We encourage good behaviour

Voges encourages its users to offer the used packaging for recycling. This is going quite well. Our users usually have green fingers, which makes them very inclined to separate plastics.

CO2 Neutral

We do what we can

At Voges we go to great lengths to minimise our carbon footprint. In our production process we make as much use as possible of green energy, which we prefer to generate ourselves.
