Sustainability informs Pacifica body-lotion tube

Gold Award: The Pacifica Dream State Power Shimmer Body Lotion tube from Viva IML Tubes, which also won the Ted Klein Tube of the Year Award (see p.1 of this article), is made from 50% PCR resin and uses fully recyclable polypropylene components.

Aluminum alternative reduces carbon footprint for L’Oréal

Silver Award: The laminate tube for L’Oréal Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme is up to 45% lighter than the aluminum tubes more commonly used for hair-coloring products, and its carbon footprint is 82% smaller. Supplied by Albéa Americas, this package also won the Gold Award in the Best Personal Care category (see p.2 of this article).

Dr. Bronner’s tube material incorporates plant-based resin

Bronze Award: The laminate used for Dr. Bronner’s Cinnamon All-One Toothpaste tube, from Essel Propack, incorporates polylactic acid (PLA) from organically grown plants. Because the material is primarily high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the tube is certified Resin Identification Code #2 recyclable.
