Nice-Pak is set to introduce 100% recyclable packaging for the baby wipes brand- Aqualette. This innovative development marks the conclusion of 18 months of research & development work intended at orienting towards sustainability and consumers’ demand for products which promote sustainability. The packaging team of Nice-Pak has designed and developed the recyclable film and re-sealable labels in teaming up with the material suppliers.

In October 2018, Nice-Pak had implemented a new recycling concept RafCycle to recycle its labels. The brand offers wipes across four categories, including baby, cosmetic, household and personal care.

The wet wipe manufacturer which supplies to Walmart and other retailers, has also announced its plans of expanding its operations in Jonesboro in Arkansas, US. The company is set to increase its labor pool by 25%.

Peter Bushell, Nice-Pak International Packaging Development Manager, says, “We believe that both customers and consumers alike deserve more choice in meeting their environmental aspirations. The mono-polymer project has been technically challenging but we are proud to have achieved this U.K. first as part of our ongoing efforts to improve the environmental footprint of our products.  We have strived to render this product ‘recycle ready’ to support the future development and harmonization of the recycling infrastructure.”
