Enabling the circular economy
The large foldable containers are made from 100% recyclable high-quality plastics and are designed for extreme reusability. The usage of the units creates significant efficiencies in transport and logistics, enabling the circular economy by:
- eliminating the usage of the single-use packaging items from entering the landfill, reducing solid waste;
- eliminating the need to recycle or remanufacture single-use packaging, reducing carbon (greenhouse gas) emissions;
- superior product protection offered by the units resulting in lower product damage and waste;
- enhancing the efficiencies of return logistics by allowing at least four times as many empty containers in a truck;
- closing the loop by taking back end-of-life containers for recycling.
With this supply agreement, Cabka is providing support for some of Target’s long-term recycling needs and using various waste as feedstock for future production.
