We have all seen the headlines about the huge environmental problems caused by single use plastic. Chrysal is now introducing a sustainable flower food sachet. This powder sachet is made of industrial compostable material. This means the packaging is compostable under high temperatures and will result in a valuable reduction of plastic waste.
Peter Vriends, Chrysal CEO “Our goal is to make our packaging sustainable through the Reduce, Recycle and Re-use principle and to contribute to our CSR goals and those of our customers. We are looking at all of our packaging and one of the steps we are taking is introducing a sustainable flower food sachet”. The sachets are composed of industrial compostable material of plant material. This means the sachets are biodegradable. The sustainable sachet contains the Chrysal Universal flower food (powder) that keeps flowers beautiful up to 60% longer.
The compostable packaging is a first step towards environmentally friendlier alternatives to our current packaging. Chrysal is testing several alternatives to increase sustainability and to reduce packaging materials. Sustainability is an important topic for Chrysal and they are developing several initiatives to contribute. Recently they placed 900 solar cells on the roof of the head office in Naarden, the Netherlands. A big part of their energy is now from a sustainable source, reducing 165000 kg CO2 per year.
Additionally they are supporting local communities in the countries in which they operate as well as running projects and activities to reduce our impact on the environment.
