Halo Wipes manufacturer, Nice-Pak International, has achieved its goal of sending zero waste to landfill at one of its UK sites.
The privately owned company’s Hindley Green factory has joined Nice-Pak’s Magdeburg site as a zero landfill factory, achieving both carbon emission and waste reductions.
This achievement is part of an ongoing commitment to ethical manufacturing.
Halo marketing director Ian Anderson said: “As a responsible company, we are committed to continuously improving our environmental profile. It’s paramount we find solutions for consumers which really work – while always prioritising responsible manufacturing.
“We are proud to have achieved zero landfill at our Wigan factory, as well as our Magdeburg base, and will continue to make this a focus for all future developments. It makes business sense from an environmental and commercial perspective.”
Nice-Pak is set to open a new 400,000sq ft wet wipes manufacturing factory in Wigan in 2016. It will boast the latest technology and wet wipes manufacturing equipment and processes.
The Halo range, containing Eye Makeup Remover Pads, Antibacterial Surface Wipes, Deodorant Wipes, Hand Wipes and Moistened Toilet Tissue, is currently stocked in Asda, Tesco, Dunnes, Sainsbury’s and independent pharmacies.
