Cambrian Packaging is a UK manufacturer of rHDPE plastic bottles and we have watched with growing concern the impact single-use plastic packaging is having on our environment. This issue has received a lot of press and Government attention recently and has accelerated public demand for new and more environmentally-friendly packaging options.

Ecycle™ is Cambrian’s packaging option designed to help meet this demand for 100% recycled plastic bottles - it is 100% rHDPE (recycled high density polyethylene). The feedstock for Ecycle™ is plastic packaging waste collected from numerous sources including watercourses and coastlines. This approach helps address the growing problem of plastic packaging polluting our seas and oceans and avoids incineration of waste by using it again.

The composition of the Ecycle™ material is the same as standard HDPE. It has very similar melting point, flow rate and cooling rate characteristics.

Natural coloured 100% recycled HDPE plastic bottles

Ecycle’s natural colour is either very light grey or green, according to feedstock source. This distinctive colouration is a positive marketing characteristic, helping to establish a recognisable eco-friendly look. If required, standard masterbatch can be added to achieve white, black or coloured bottles.

No extra oil or production inputs are used in turning used HDPE into Ecycle™, adding to its positive ecological credentials. NB: Bottles manufactured in Ecycle™ can be recycled again after use. This isn’t the case for packaging in plant derived polymers, sometimes called ‘bio-plastics.’ You can read more about that, and why Cambrian is leading the way when it comes to 100% recycled plastic bottles here.

Ecycle™ versions of our popular 'Elan' spray bottles in 500ml and 750ml sizes and cylindrical bottles in 500ml and 1000ml sizes can be ordered for swift supply straight from stock.

We intend adding Ecycle™ options to more product lines, led by demand from our customers. So if there are any of our other bottles you would like supplied in Ecycle™, we'd be delighted to hear from you!
