What we need from you

The Chain of custody documentation for each SKU is as follows:

  1. Send purchase order from your raw materials supplier proving PCR purchase
  2. Confirm number of units produced with this level of PCR
  3. On company letter headed paper, provide confirmation from the Company Director stating the percentage of recycled content packaging, for guidance on calculation click here.

What we do in return

Upon acceptance of the documentation, and verification that the submission is accurate and true, you will be granted full use of the rating mark.

Your company and SKU will be registered on this website.

The Cost

We anticipate the registration, verification and certification process to cost between £2k – £5k, depending on verification complexity, and the number of proposed SKUs.

Pioneering the plastic revolution

The RPR will re-invest any proceeds from the cost of the mark into education programmes around sustainability.

With the help of Timothy the Turtle, we want to raise awareness of the plastic problem. Inspiring the younger generation to make change happen through positive life choices.

The Maths

For the purposes of the UK Plastics Pact, recycled content definition is aligned with ISO definition. The target is 30% recycled content across all plastic components. (This includes pumps, lids etc.)

 

Trigger weight = 25g
Trigger recycled plastic = 0%
Bottle weight = 54g
Bottle recycled plastic = 100%
Label weight = 0.01g
Label recycled content = 0%
Recycled Plastic Rating = 68%

Turn cap weight = 4g
Turn cap recycled plastic = 0%
Bottle weight = 53.5g
Bottle recycled plastic = 100%
Label weight = 0.01g
Label recycled content = 0%
Recycled Plastic Rating = 93%
