PLASTIC-FREE = HIGHLY RECYCLABLE
- Tin is considered infinitely recyclable along with other metals like aluminum, this means when it is recycled there is no loss of quality as it is returned to the production cycle
- Unlike many plastics, tin has a high recycling rate due to its steady quality after recycling, it can be remade and reshaped easily, using less energy than when producing it
- Tin products can be reused due to their perception of value. Tin being a metal, solid product, gives consumers a premium feeling making it harder to part ways with the packaging. With their sturdiness as well things like tin cans can easily be repurposed for multiple uses, like to store around the house items
- Tin is an easy way to eliminate single-use plastic from your packaging portfolio. Options are available to package flower, pre-rolls, and edibles!
Recycling rates are always highest when using what is referred to as mono-material.
This means you are not mixing two materials together in the same package. Contempo’s child resistant tins are all-tin, meaning they are more easily recyclable.
