Every year, 400 million tons of plastics are produced of which 40% is for single-use. Single-use plastics are, for example, plastic bags, many beverage packages, and crisp packets. One of the largest consumer of plastics is the beverage industry.
The shape of plastic bottles are ineffective when transporting water. There will be lot of empty space between the bottles which mean more transportation which means more pollution.
Carrying large amounts of plastic bottles from the store can be difficult and inefficient. The larger bottles don't fit all refrigerators and to fill a glass with a drink, the bottle must first be removed from the refrigerator. We try to solve this problem with our packaging.
Even though the plastic bottles used for soft drinks and water are made from polyethylene terephthalate (Pet), which is highly recyclable, most plastic bottles produced end up in landfill or in the ocean. Micro plastic in the sea is ingested by birds, fish and other organisms causing problems for all living things.
Used bottles cause a lot of waste traffic even if they are crashed or part of circulating system. Empty bottles still need a lot of space when they are transported to landfill or further handling.
Humans impact the environment in many ways: overpopulation, pollution, burning fossil fuels, and deforestation. Changes like these have triggered climate change, soil erosion, poor air quality and undrinkable water.
We grouped together Finnish CEOs, designers and beverage business professionals and gave them a challenge...
Easy recycling leads to considerably less garbage disposal traffic compared with PET bottles. The plastic required to produce NWB packaging is 72% less than PET alternatives.
The new NWB packaging is logistically more efficient than PET bottles in warehousing and transportation due to maximum utilisation of the pallet space. For example, this cuts transportation costs and required storage space up to 35% compared to PET bottles.
NWB Package is easy to dispose of. You just remove the bag from the box. The bags are light and the volume is much less than a bottle. The box can be folded and circulated after use. There is no packaging waste from secondary packaging or additional in-between support materials on a pallet.
NWB packaging is designed with the modular approach: two matching packs form a 2-pack unit, which is stackable and fills the euro-pallet perfectly. There is no need for secondary cardboard box as in traditional BiB packaging. This makes the production line simpler and faster.
The new NWB packaging uses less plastic and is easy to recycle. Due to this the packaging is also less toxic to the environment
All sizes for NWB packages also fit easily in the fridge, keeping the liquid cooler and easy to use straight from the shelf.
