Spectre launches recycled plastic tubs

Spectre has launched new 100% recyclable tub packaging made with a minimum of 30% recycled plastic.

The reusable tubs, crammed with Spectre’s Advanced Wood Screws, are made from 30% recyclable plastic and come in quantities of 300, 450, 600, 900, 1200 and 1400. Each tub also comes with a pack of two Spectre screwdriver bits.

“This packaging has been specifically designed to offer merchants and end users flexibility in terms of how they purchase our products,” explains Brian Trevaskiss, Spectre’s Head of Product and Sustainability. “Our research told us builders still love tubs, they provide waterproof storage and are reusable and recyclable. Using 30% recycled plastic is better for the environment and means no ‘plastic tax’.”

The move is part of an overall drive by Spectre and other ranges in the ForgeFix family of brands to reduce its carbon footprint. Point of sale stands will also be available.
