THE PÖPPELMANN EFFECT:
Closed material loop.

We do it.
More resource-saving.

Closed material loop

100 % Recyclable Plant Pot, Plastic Content 100 % Recycled.

Environmental and climate protection becomes more and more important for the end consumer. And the topic of resource conservation is important to us as well. Therefore the plastics used for our plant pots in the Circular blue (before: Recycling Blue) colour come directly out of the recycling bin and returns there as well. This allows for a closed raw material loop. We call this initiative PÖPPELMANN blue®.

We assume responsibility.

Plastics is a valuable raw material. Currently, only about half of the plastic from the packaging waste is recycled in Germany. We want to increase this ratio and actively contribute to closing the raw material loop.Plant pots in the Circular blue colour are designed in such a way that the material can be reliably identified in waste sorting. These can be used for the extraction of new Pöppelmann PCR granules, which are completely extracted from the yellow bin.

 

The TEKU® 4-level classification categorises our plant pots.

Nearly every plant pot supplied by us contains recycled plastic.
The new TEKU® 4-level classification now clearly defines the material source for each variant.

Learn more about the individual levels:

Level 1: Plant pot Circular360

The plant pots from this product range are at the top of the new TEKU® 4 level classification – and for good reason: As the name suggests, in the product life they circulate completely 360 degrees back to the beginning, from production, use and disposal to kerbside recycling in the material loop. For these pots – developed as part of our corporate initiative PÖPPELMANN blue® – we have already completely closed the material loop.

Plastic accounts for at least 80 % of the pots composition and this comes 100 % from household kerbside recycling collections as certified by the RAL quality mark. Pots in the Circular360 series are currently available exclusively in the colour Circular blue for most common series of the TEKU programme.

The plastics used for our plant pots in the Circular blue colour come directly out of the recycling bin and returns there as well.

1 PCR HW = Post-­Consumer-Recycling-Material from the Yellow Bin, Yellow Bag or other household waste collection systems

Level 2: Plant pot PCR Recyclable

The plant pots in this series are 100 % kerbside recyclable. For production we use PCR plastic which has been soured from European countries including Germany. However, this recycled plastic is not necessarily from household waste, but also from other suitable disposed products such as garden furniture. These plant pots are available in the colours PCR Recyclable taupe/grey and PCR Recyclable terracotta/grey.

The advantages of PCR Recyclable:

  • 100 % Recyclable
    • NIR detectable
    • Float-sink method

  • Main sizes available from stock

  • Printable

  • Made of
    • Plastic = 100 % PCR 1 
    • Colour (Masterbatch)
    • Filler

  • Certified 2 

  • Colours: PCR Recyclable taupe/grey, PCR Recyclable terracotta/grey, PCR Recyclable terracotta

  • Other colours on request

1 PCR = non-specified Post-Consumer-Recycling-Material e.g. DE, DK, NL, AT, CH, NO, GB
2 for most products

Level 3: Plant pot Recyclable

The plant pots in this series are 100 % suitable for kerbside recycling and thus reutilisation: This enables them to set a starting point for the material cycle. They are made from a mix of materials consisting of PCR (although not necessarily from household collections), PIR and virgin material. There is a wide range of recycling-specific colour choices.

The advantages of Recyclable:

  • 100  % Recyclable
    • NIR detectable
    • Float-sink method

  • Made of
    • Plastic = PCR 1 / PIR 2 / Virgin material
    • Colour (Masterbatch)
    • Filler

  • Colours: Recyclable yellow/grey, Recyclable pink/grey, Recyclable red/grey, Recyclable blackberry/grey, Recyclable lavender/grey, Recyclable light green/grey, Recyclable white/grey, Recyclable orange/grey

  • Other colours on request

  • Certified 3 

  • Main sizes available from stock

  • Printable

1 PCR = non-specified Post-Consumer-Recycling-Material e.g. DE, DK, NL, AT, CH, NO, GB
2 PIR = Post-Industrial-Recycling-Material
3 for most products

Level 4: Plant pot Black

The plant pots in this series meet all Pöppelmann quality requirements. They are made of PIR and/or virgin material.

The advantages of Black:

  • Made of
    • Plastic = 100 % PIR 1 / Virgin material
    • Colour (Masterbatch)
    • Filler

  • Printable

1 PIR = Post-Industrial-Recycling-Material

Excellent and certified.


Alliance for the recycling economy of the EU Commission.
The signatories affirm their support for the objective of the
EU Commission to use ten million tons of recycled plastic in
new products by the year 2025.


By signing the Global Commitment, Pöppelmann has committed
itself, among other things, to significantly increasing the proportion
of recycled plastic waste from the collection of recyclable materials
for the production of plastic packaging on average by 2025.

TEKU® plant pots of the initiative PÖPPELMANN blue® are certified with the Blue Angel for the use of recycled plastic.

The RAL Quality Mark ­indicates the proportion of plastic that comes from the Yellow Bin, Yellow Bag or other household waste collection systems.

The certified TEKU® ­products are 100 % ­recyclable in the German Dual Systems and in ­comparable household waste collection systems in various European countries.

The jury says: “Brilliant solution! Minimal use of ­material, super light from 100 % recycled material. Closed Loop!”

More resource-saving

These TEKU® series are available in Circular blue:

The Pöppelmann Effect:

100 % recyclable and printable.

With Pöppelmann TEKU® sustainability is even more attractive now. Our resource-saving 100 % recyclable plant pots in the Circular blue colour are now also available with printed motifs. Of course, you can still expect the same high quality “made by Pöppelmann” standards you are familiar with – so that you can persuade your customers in the long run.
