TRADITION . INNOVATIONS . SYNERGIES
Our Sarah tube was developed for brands that want to demonstrate their commitment to the environment and brand protection to their customers via their tube packaging.
The Australian government has set four national packaging waste targets, with the goal of achieving these targets by 2025. The four targets are:

We named this innovative tube Sarah because:
Through innovate production techniques, this tube contains more than 40% sugar cane polyethylene (PE). Since sugar cane is a plant, it captures carbon whilst it is growing. This means that when the sugar cane PE leaves the factory, it is carbon neutral. The sugar cane PE that we source is FDA approved for direct food contact and does not contain any nasties, such as Bisphenol A.
This tube is protected with internationally registered, anti-counterfeit measures, helping to protect brand owners for the growing problems of counterfeits appearing in the market place. Using the “smart QR” code, we can also monitor the location of where the tubes are scanned, helping to provide brands with a map of where the products are attracting the interest of consumers. You may be selling product in China but do you know where in China your product is being sold or used?
Our Sarah tube contains more than 40% recycled polyethylene (PE). The recycled content is sourced from another Australian company and is processed so well that our recycled PE is also FDA approved for direct food contact.
Made down under, destined to be on top. Australia has some of the most stringent environmental legislation in the world. Having your tubes manufactured in Australia also significantly reduces your carbon foot print by not shipping empty tubes (containing air) around the world. According to a report published by the Guardian newspaper in the UK “just one of the world’s largest container ships can emit about as much pollution as 50 million cars. Further, the 15 largest ships in the world emit as much nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide as the world’s 760 million cars.” So, not only are you supporting Australian jobs, you are also helping the environment on a global scale.
Our Sarah tube provides brand owners with a holistic answer to the varying questions that more environmentally savvy consumers ask. By using our Sarah tube, brand owners can meet all four of the Australian government 2025 packaging targets in 2019.
