Jokey joins RAL Quality Association
The Jokey Group, manufacturer of plastic packaging, is member of the RAL-Gütegemeinschaft Rezyklate (Quality Association for Recycled Materials from Household Collections) since the beginning of 2019. The quality association founded by Grüner Punkt and partners in April 2018 voluntarily submits to the quality and testing regulations recognised by the RAL Institute. The German family business thus documents in which packaging post consumer plastics are recycled and used and what their percentage share is.
Recyclates since the 90s
The recyclate campaign "Grey is the new green" of the company runs since 1991 and not just around the new German Verpackungsgesetz, that enforces stronger recyclate use and recycling of packaging. Grey recyclate buckets for the non-food industry were launched in the early 90s on the market for the first time. "Unfortunately, customers did not accept this packaging sufficiently at the time. But paints, building materials or chemical products are just as well and safely packaged in it as in new plastics", says Marketing Manager Michael Schmitz. Now, this is changing and the use of the new RAL Quality Mark together with the recyclate campaign will further promote transparency and ecological awareness among customers.
