HINNO is the first company in the industry to focus on sustainability in specialist market self-service. There’s now a completely new packaging concept!
QR-Code as a key
There was a major challenge associated with the switch from plastic to paper: The products themselves were no longer visible! To solve this issue, in addition to the key information on the packaging, a QR code links to the product description and advice.
The code leads to an online page providing all the information on each respective product – in text, photos, graphics and video images, as well as accessing useful service tools and supplementary product recommendations.
- Fully-recyclable paper packaging (95/5)
- Save 10 million plastic bags per year within the company (overall potential)
- Detailed printing on package and final sizing done by HINNO using green electricity. Reduction in transportation
- Product info in texts, static images and videos via a QR code
10 million fewer plastic bags per year
This changeover is planned for all of our consumer markets, helping the company reduce its annual plastic use by a total of up to 10 million plastic bags per year! That’s in addition to production and assembly lines that use 100% green electricity, fully recyclable curtain gliders and hooks – and lots more. So HINNO has defined another benchmark on the way to guaranteeing the most environmentally friendly working practices possible.
A big thank you also goes out to our business partners for their willingness to take this completely new but important step on behalf of the industry.
