Leading wet wipe manufacturer, Nice-Pak, has announced that it will include plastic-free, sustainable products in every customer proposal beginning in 2020. This pledge is one of six new commitments which mark a step-change in the company’s already-well developed sustainability program. Other efforts include strong commitments on packaging, brand transparency and a responsible and cautious approach to monitoring chemicals of concern.
The company will also report annually on its customers’ ’Do Not Flush’ compliance. This will underline its commitment to the agreed industry labelling code of practice and actively encourage consumers to dispose of wet wipes appropriately.
Publication of the Sustainability Pledges coincides with the launch of what it calls the "ultimate in sustainable baby wipes." Its new ‘Nice ‘n Clean Aqualettes’ brand features plastic-free wipes, a pre-biotic formula and 100% recyclable packaging.
“We wanted to take our sustainability efforts to the next level through a series of significant commitments which will apply to our businesses across the globe," says CEO Michael Staton. "Our product development program reflects the fact that we are fully aligned with customers and consumers on the global significance of environmental issues.In Europe, the launch of ‘Nice ‘n Clean Aqualettes’ demonstrates the progress we are making in bringing these principles to life.This unique combination of materials from sustainable sources, natural ingredients and recyclable packaging is the result of creativity and determination by our team to ensure we lead the sector in care for the environment.”
