ONE TO WATCH
Delphis Eco: Recycled Plastic Rating (RPR)
The RPR shows the consumer exactly how much recycled content is in the packaging they’re buying, empowering consumers to live sustainably by purchasing products packaged in Post-Consumer Recycled content. The RPR is easily recognisable and will be understood by manufacturers and consumers on a national scale. 28 different marks currently exist showing whether or not packaging is recyclable. Zero marks exist to show the exact percentage of recycled content in packaging, with the RPR, the confusion is removed and consumers will be able to see if the packaging contains recycled content, and how to re-recycle it.
