Beatson Clark to highlight the environment at Ecopack Exhibition

sv500009.jpgBeatson Clark will be showcasing its latest products on stand 409 in the Ecopack section of the Easyfairs Exhibition on 11-12 February at the Birmingham NEC. Ecopack is the must-attend event for any company interested in environmentally responsible packaging, making it the obvious platform for Beatson Clark to demonstrate their expertise and the environmental credentials of glass.

As the only show of its kind in the UK, the exhibition is focused on what is new, creative and innovative in packaging. With this in mind, Beatson Clark’s Lynn Sidebottom and Alan Haigh will be giving a presentation at the Brand Summit on the latest Oxo bottle and Beatson Clark’s expertise and design capabilities. Taking place in the Packaging Innovations section of the exhibition, the presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

For anyone serious about packaging that is environmentally friendly, glass is the natural choice. As one of the only materials that is infinitely recyclable, glass can be used repeatedly without degenerating, which is important when we are all facing the risks of man-made climate change.

Using recycled materials slows down the depletion of the Earth’s natural resources while also saving energy in the manufacturing process. For every 10% of glass cullet, energy costs are reduced by 2% and 60-70% cullet can be used to manufacture flint glass and as much as 85% for amber.

Beatson Clark is also at the forefront of introducing the latest lightweighting technology and the company will be showcasing the latest packaging to have benefited from this process. Reducing the weight of a standard 500ml amber beer bottle by as much as 83g allows the style of packaging to be retained while reducing both manufacturing and transport costs – further protecting the environment and preserving resources.

“While our focus will be on the environmental performance of our products at Ecopack, the close proximity of Packaging Innovations will allow us to demonstrate the advantages of glass as a packaging medium,” explained Beatson Clark Marketing Manager Charlotte Taylor “The Oxo bottle is the perfect example of our design skills, while our latest lightweighetd beer bottles show off our environmental credentials.”
