ARA Circular Design
How we make packaging circular.
ARA Circular Design combines design for recycling and design from recycling. It improves the recyclability of packaging while at the same time increasing the use of recycled materials. We set up ARA Circular Design for two main reasons: to ensure the sustainable use of resources and to help our customers meet EU requirements for eco-friendly packaging design. All plastic packaging must be recyclable by 2030.

How we consider recycling at the design stage.
Design for recycling means recyclability is factored in from the start – without compromising the full functionality or attractiveness of packaging. And design from recycling aims to increase the use of recycled materials.
