World stars at the WorldStar Awards

At the Australian Institute of Packaging) National Conference in Queensland the Frosch Recyclate Initiative received the WorldStar Packaging Award in the "Household" category for its development of bottles made of 100 percent HDPE recyclates.

Frosch for Recylcates

Recycling is a very good thing, but we don't recycle as much as we could.  The Recyclate Initiative wants to change that.At Frosch we have been producing cleaning products with an environmental conscience since 1986.  We take our environmental responsibility seriously and continue to improve the cleaning ability and environmental credentials of our products.
