23rd May 2017 - "On Loan"

Great campaign on aluminium facts

Norwegian frontrunner Leroy launched a new food packaging campaign. We like it so much, that we decided to share it. It’s a great and simple way to explain how aluminium is being recycled. Read it and be inspired.

To educate consumers, the campaign explains that aluminium is not owned by anyone, but only on loan. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and is re-used in various applications, for example bikes, construction and cars.

The first step of the campaign is a little booklet that is attached to Leroy’s ready meals, explaining where to throw out the container after use. Giving consumers the possibility to learn about packaging materials and making it easier to take responsibility is a big step towards a more sustainable future.

Plus Pack is a certified heart-secure company

Every year, 3,500 people suffer out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in Denmark. Since 2001, Denmark has succeeded in raising bystander CPR from 19% to 64%. In the same period, survival has gone up from 4% to 12%.

In May 2017, Plus Pack became a certified heart-secure company and installed a bystander heartstarter device outside our facilities in Odense, Denmark. Because the heartstarter is placed outside the building,  24/7 access is possible.
