The Vape Shop is pleased to announce that we now use SGS certified recycled food grade plastic bottles called rPET, these new bottles offer the same high quality, standards and safety as PET bottles but are made from recycled plastic.
The EU TPD regulations May 2017 has caused a dramatic increase in the number of plastic e liquid bottles being used. Before the TPD regulations a vaper could buy a single 120ml bottle of e liquid. The day after the the TPD regulation came into being that same vapour now has to purchase 13 plastic bottles to make a single 120ml at 18mg strength.
The estimated increase of plastic e liquid bottles going into the UK environment because of the EU TPD is an additional 3 Billion per year.
To minimise our plastic footprint and do our bit to help the environment The Vape Shop has sourced certified recycled rPET bottles. These bottles are certified by the German company SGS (http://www.sgs.com/en/certification)
rPET is tough, clear, has good chemical resistance with natural barrier properties and processes as well – if not better than – virgin PET. rPET is suitable for most polymer processing methods. It can be blended with virgin PET to reduce the carbon footprint of a moulded article or can be processed at 100%.
