Hartz Shrinks Packaging Footprint
Pet care products company Hartz Mountain has redesigned its pet shampoo bottles to save 220,000 pounds of polymer across 10 million bottles, the companyâ€™s director of packaging engineering tells Packaging Digest.
The new 18-fluid-ounce shampoo bottleâ€™s footprint also allows for a 1.5 percent more efficient pallet pattern, which means fewer trucks â€” and GHG emissions â€” on the road, Nicole Tom tells the publication.
As part of its commitment to sustainable packaging, Tom says Hartzâ€™s packaging team is working on additional products that leave a smaller waste management footprint. Its dog treats, for example, will soon be sold in a recyclable bag.
Sustainability is not an optional add-on, but rather an essential part of business for the packaging industry, Food Production Daily reported last month.
