Softbox launches recycling service for pharma packaging

US-based temperature-control packaging provider Softbox has launched a new Green Recycling Service for its life science customers across the US and Canada.
John Hammes, general manager of Softbox, US and Canada, explained: “Softbox is highly committed to supporting its customers and providing cold chain packaging solutions that reduce waste and their impact on the environment. Our new Green Recycling Service allows us to go even further – by ensuring a sustainable alternative for ‘end of life’ temperature control packaging waste.
“Our US and Canadian customers can now significantly reduce their landfill impact and potentially reduce the cost they are paying today for non-sustainable waste.
“This programme will not only benefit Softbox’s green priorities, it will also help our biopharma customers achieve their own sustainability objectives, reporting, and scores,” he said.
Customers simply call Softbox to arrange collection of their packaging waste. Items such as used pallets or EPS foam are delivered to a recycling centre, and transformed into other materials that can be used to manufacture new products for other industries
Softbox said it is working with a specialist in the manufacturing and recycling of packaging materials to deliver the “one-phone-call, one-fee” service.
