Pact Group wins two prestigious 2021 WorldStar Packaging Awards

14 January 2021

Pact’s first winning entry was in the Personal Care category for Glow Lab’s post-consumer sourced (PCR) 100% rPET bottle. The range consists of body wash, handwash, shampoo and conditioner bottles that are 100% rPET and replace the former virgin PET designs. After converting to recycled rPET, Pact Group was able to further light weight Glow Lab’s amber bottles by an average of -27% (approx. 37 tonnes per annum). Based on Glow Lab’s volumes, this equates to approximately 130 tonnes of plastic that has been reused and diverted from landfill.

Pact also won a WorldStar Award in the Household category for Earthwise’s post-consumer sourced (PCR) 75% rHDPE cleaning range bottles.

The WorldStar Packaging Awards are run by the World Packaging Organisation. This year, Australia and New Zealand combined received the fourth highest number of awards in the world behind Japan, China and USA. There were 194 winners overall selected from 345 entries.

The ANZ winners are winners from the annual Packaging Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards program, presented by the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), which is the exclusive feeder program for the two countries into the WorldStar Packaging Awards.

Commenting on the calibre of the entries, WPO president Pierre Pienaar said, “The submissions were, again, of a significantly high standard, and it was notable how well the entries in general reflected the focus of packaging with sustainability in mind.”
