Lohne, December 2020 – Pöppelmann TEKU® mixes up the market for plant pots with products of the category Circular360. Their plastic content consists of 100 percent post-consumer material from the yellow bin, the yellow bag and other recyclable material collections close to households. After use they are 100 percent recyclable. The plant pots in the eye-catching colour Circular blue have long been familiar to retailers and end consumers. Now they are available as thermoformed and - brand new - also as injection moulded articles in other colours.
Customers of Pöppelmann TEKU® now have more choice among the recyclable plant pots of the category Circular360: The inline range, which is particularly material-saving due to the thermoforming process, is available in Circular Circular blue / grey, Circular white / grey, Circular terracotta / grey and Circular taupe / grey. Brand new: Many injection-moulded plant pots now also enrich the range as recyclable articles in the colours Circular terracotta, Circular taupe, Circular pine green and Circular anthracite.
The resource-saving plant pots of the Circular360 category were developed within the framework of the PÖPPELMANN blue® initiative, which bundles all activities of the Pöppelmann Group for a closed material cycle. The articles are manufactured, with the addition of colour and additives, from 100 percent PCR HW, i.e. post-consumer recycling material from the yellow bin, the yellow bag or other household-related recyclable material collections. After use, they are 100 percent recyclable - thus closing the material cycle. All products in the Circular360 category can be printed well and are certified several times: The certificate of the institute cyclos-HTP confirms that TEKU® plant pots are 100 percent recyclable in the dual system and comparable systems. In addition, the closed-loop products carry the Blue Angel eco-label for the use of recycled plastic, as well as the RAL quality label, which guarantees that they are manufactured from recycled materials obtained from the Yellow Bag or Yellow Bin collections.
