One way to boost your brand’s mission to provide green packaging is through recyclable plastic tubes wholesale.
Consumers seek brands that are transparent when it comes to offering environmentally-friendly products. Available in different sizes and colors, Green Earth has plastic tube containers that can help you and your customers decrease the impact of plastic in landfills and in the environment. Read on further to learn more about the uses for plastic tube packaging, types of plastic tubes for sale, and more!
What is Plastic Tube Packaging?
Plastic tube packaging is a popular container form for brands to store different products, including medication, supplement pills, toiletries, and much more. A plastic tube is lightweight, which is easier to transport in bulk.
Plastic vial tubes also offer superior protection against moisture and are generally airtight, which helps to preserve your product’s freshness. Plastic cylinder packaging tubes are easy to carry and fit conveniently in your purse or bag. Glass tubes are also an excellent eco-friendly alternative if plastic isn’t your brand’s vibe.
Many people have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to sustainability and plastic, but it turns out many kinds of plastic can be reused, recycled and reduce the amount of plastic that ends up littered. Research has shown that increased consumer awareness regarding sustainable packaging will raise the demand for more and more products to be available in eco-friendly packaging.
Encourage your customers to repurpose their plastic tube containers after use. People can clean the plastic containers with warm water and a little bleach to remove any remaining residue. The container can be reused as plastic cosmetic tubes, sample tubes, random organizational containers for super small supplies like beads and buttons, and more.
Each local recycling center may have specific guidelines on plastic recycling. Even if your company’s clients no longer use the plastic tubes in bulk, they can recycle them at most community recycling centers. Here is what happens when the tubes are recycled:
A person brings their collection of recyclable items to a recycling center or has them picked up by their curbside recycling program.
The recycling center gathers the plastic and sends it to be manufactured into new goods.
Another person can purchase and reuse recycled goods.
What Types of Plastic Tubes Containers Are Available?
There are many different types of plastic tube containers available to fit whatever product your brand offers. The pop-top plastic tube can be cylindrical or conical and can be opened via squeezing the top. It will make a recognizable pop noise once it opens.
Some people have an easier time opening squeeze tops plastic containers than plastic tube containers with screw-on lids. Whether you prefer the cone or classic cylinder shape, these plastic tube containers are child-resistant.
Cylinder Pop-Top Plastic Tubes
The cylindrical plastic tube packaging is available in the following sizes and are compatible with our heat shrink bands:
116mm (King Size)
With various color options, you can make your brand stand out even more when you add labels with your company’s name and design.
Cone-Shaped Pop-Top Plastic Tubes
Although these small plastic tube containers are not technically perfectly cylindrical, they are just as effective, locking in freshness and preventing any aroma from being released, thanks to their airtight design. The slightly conical tubes are available in one size at this time, 109mm.
The plastic tube cones are only available in white or clear. Although not as colorful, they are better equipped to show the contents it is storing. Plus, you can add custom labels to bring them to life if colorful vibes are more your thing.
