Tobermore invests in sustainable packaging

The sustainable packaging has been rolled out throughout stocking merchants and building sites nationwide.

Tobermore managing director David Henderson says: “We are proud to have invested in more sustainable packaging. Tobermore recognises the global challenge of packaging waste and consequently the need for a new plastic economy. To ensure we can retain the benefits of plastic, we had to rethink how we produce, use and re-use it.”

“As a responsible manufacturer, Tobermore is committed to safeguarding future resources, reducing waste and saving energy. We have a responsibility to make sure that we keep plastic within a circular economy and out of our natural environment. We feel good about using packaging which is better for our planet and urge our industry peers to rethink their packaging also.”
