Eco-design of packaging
As plant specialists, we are also a conditioner. As such, we generate packaging. Both to preserve resources and to limit waste, it is our responsibility to design them with common sense, known as eco-design.
- Removal of flaps.
- Removal of cellophane (while ensuring the inviolability of the box): annually we save 60 tons of plastic.
- Reduction in packaging weight: annually, we save 25 tonnes of cardboard boxes.
Choices not guided by business considerations:
- A glue-free bag: historically, the paper of the tea bag is impregnated with glue in order to be sealed by gluing. We have chosen to reject this, unlike the core market and its leader.
- We do not want our consumers to infuse hot water with glue... soluble in hot water.
Recycling: at PAGÈS, our choice is recycled cardboard. As a matter of balance and common sense, we only use cardboard boxes with controlled and limited levels of mineral oil residues in order not to run any health risks.
