Pact Group is delighted to have won the Gold Award in the Sustainability Category for Lewis Road’s rPET Milk Bottles. Announced overnight by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO), the Sustainability Award is one of four special awards introduced into the WorldStar Awards’ 2020 programme.
Lewis Road’s post-consumer sourced 100% recycled plastic polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) milk bottle range is an Australasian first in its category and equates to approximately 340 tonnes of plastic per annum that has been reused and diverted from landfill.
Winning a Sustainability Award on a world stage underpins Pact’s recently announced strategy to lead the circular economy through reuse, recycling and packaging solutions.
Lewis Road’s rPET Milk Bottle has received numerous industry accolades over the past 18 months including winning the 2019 Australian Packaging and Processing Innovation and Design Award (PIDA’s) in both the Sustainable Packaging Design and Beverage categories and a WorldStar Award in the Beverage category.
