British ice cream brand Northern Bloc has launched fully recyclable and biodegradable ice cream buckets to complement its new vegan flavours
The new ice cream buckets have an organic coating rather than a plastic coating, meaning they can be recycled in a home recycling mix bin
At present, other paper ice cream buckets on the market are more difficult to recycle.
Although both the paper bucket and the plastic coating are theoretically recyclable, it is very difficult to separate the two materials, and the recycling of by-products is difficult because of contamination.
This new eco-friendly ice cream bucket has no plastic coating, but instead a coating of completely natural organic compounds made from sugar cane, the by-products of which are fully reusable and naturally decompose
Due to the various troubles caused by different material packaging to post-recycling processing, such as difficult separation, material contamination, etc.
, more and more packaging tends to use homogeneous materials or fully degradable bio-based materials to make packaging recyclable and recyclable.
