Skincare brand Medik8 has announced that every product manufactured by the brand now uses 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.
This is in line with the brand’s wider campaign surrounding the Professional Refresh (launching October 2019), positioning Medik8 as “The World’s Most Sustainable Professional Brand.”
These commitments towards ensuring a more environmentally friendly product and minimising the brand’s carbon footprint are just a few of the many initiatives within Medik8’s sustainability crusade, making the above statement more than fitting.
From September 2019, every professional Medik8 product in a plastic bottle will be made from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) material. This means not only are they recyclable, but they are also MADE of 100% recycled material.
Medik8 uses plastic derived from former drinks bottles that would otherwisehave just gone to landfill; taking centuries to degrade. This PCR material is primarily sourced from the UK to minimise our carbon footprint.
Medik8’s next long-term commitment will be to move all their professional product to Ocean Plastic derived materials; plastic waste sourced from our oceans, rivers and seas.
