ProCook takes steps to reduce plastic packaging
Cookware retailer ProCook has joined the battle against plastic pollution, announcing big changes to the way their products are packaged. The homeware brand has made the commitment to use fully recyclable materials in their extensive cookware and knife ranges resulting in 90% of all plastic packaging being eliminated in the ranges by the end of 2018. Furthermore, ProCook has committed to removing 95% of plastic packaging from all products by the end of 2019.
Responding to questions around knife packaging specifically, Daniel said:
“ProCook customers can be assured that products will continue to be packaged to very high standards with every consideration taken to ensure that safety and product protection are paramount. For instance, layered cardboard houses our knife blades very securely and is every bit as safe as the old EVA packaging. We’ve designed it to be secure and robust to ensure all orders arrive with customers in optimum condition.”
ProCook use biodegradable plastic bags in store and from Autumn onwards all bags have also been made from recycled plastic bottles.
