Mirius, 100% recycled plastic bottle
Mirius (which until recently was known as Coventry Chemicals) has joined forces with one of the UK's largest recycle bottle manufacturers to offer a trigger spray bottle made solely from 100% recycled plastic (rPET). In what is claimed to be a first for the UK cleaning industry, its new 100% recycled bottle is also 100% recyclable.
The bottle is available for customers of own label cleaning products and also across Mirius's off-the-shelf professional cleaning range - Super Professional.
After undertaking extensive research Mirius realised its customers were expressing a 'significant' desire for products that are sustainably sourced, ethically sound and environmentally friendly and the bottles form an important part of the company's corporate responsibility and its commitment to help reduce plastic waste.
"As one of the largest manufacturers of own label cleaning products, offering our customers bottles made from 100% recycled material, that can then be 100% recycled, is a natural step and helps our customers raise their environmental credentials for product sustainability," explains Mirius's commercial director Darren Langdon.
"If you use something, you have to be responsible for it in the long run. Some people talk about cradle-to-grave, we talk about cradle-to-cradle. Many of our customers are working towards the year 2025 for sustainable, recyclable products and packaging - Mirius can help them towards this now."
Collecting the award, Samantha Kimberly (NPD so-ordinator) said: "We are all really pleased with the award and so glad the bottle is getting the recognition it deserves. These are really exciting times for our business."
