Our commitment to sustainability in packaging

Capsula in bioplastica biodegradabile

Today, it is trendy to talk about environmental sustainability. But when it comes to Ecology, words are not enough: you need concrete commitment that can bring about real change. Otherwise, it’s just greenwashing!

Our company was a pioneer in adopting the concept of Sustainability among its values. A choice that dates back to the post-World War II period, when it decided to specialize on a single material, aluminum, universally considered among the most environmentally friendly of all.

Aluminum: a truly "green" material

  • It is 100% and infinitely recyclable without losing its original qualities;
  • Production of aluminum from recycled material requires 95% less energy than production from raw material.

Recovery and recycling of aluminum scrap

Favia’s aluminum tubes are largely destined for the pharmaceutical industry, so they are not produced from recycled material but directly from raw material tablets, through an extrusion process that takes place within our plants and gives life to the entire production cycle.

However, our processes include the recovery of all processing waste, which is compacted into blocks and then sent to recovery units in the territory.

Tubettificio Favia is a member of Consorzio Cial (Consorzio Imballaggi Alluminio) a nonprofit organization that is responsible for sending the aluminum packaging collected on the Italian territory for recovery and recycling.

The 8 rules of sustainable packaging

In 2018, Favia launched the “the 8 rules of conscious packaging” campaign that interprets the values of the Ethical Packaging Charter for the end consumer. A useful “vademecum” of the purchase choice that allows to focus not only on the sustainability of the product but also that of the packaging that contains it.

A product that qualifies as “sustainable” or “green” cannot present itself to the public within packaging that is not! Yet this aspect is still poorly considered by the public. Through the 8 rules of sustainable packaging, the potential buyer is led to pay attention to the product packaging and assess its environmental impact before putting the product in the cart and going through the checkout. All in a simple and fun way, suitable for even the youngest shoppers!

ToBeNaturAL: the aluminum tube is even more environmentally friendly!

ToBenaturAL is an aluminum tube with an extra “green edge”: in addition to being 100 percent infinitely recyclable, it has a closure capsule made of compostable or biodegradable material.

These innovative materials generally come from waste plant sources and present the same characteristics of hard plastic to the touch and sight (you can even use them as a base for print artwork). But unlike plastic, they degrade in the environment within a few months (90 days in the case of compostable materials).
