Dispensers that perform flawlessly, differentiate on shelf and reduce impact on the environment

Grow your sustainability story with Silgan Dispensing's portfolio

At Silgan Dispensing, we leverage our expertise to create dispensing solutions that make a difference for our customers, and theirs. With consumers more environmentally conscious than ever before, making a difference means creating dispensers that not only perform flawlessly and differentiate on the shelf, but also reduce impact on the environment.

Silgan Dispensing is your partner in solving sustainability challenges through a broad portfolio of products featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.

Our PCR portfolio of locally made dispensers, fine mist sprayers, trigger sprayers and closures use up to 98% PCR while meeting the same stringent requirements for performance as non-PCR options. The Silgan Dispensing PCR portfolio has been developed using one of three types of PCR:

  • Raw PCR
    Collected, sorted and processed PR plastics
  • Pre-colored Raw PCR
    Collected, sorted, cleaned and in-process colored black
  • “Food-grade” PCR
    Raw PCR that has undergone an additional sterilization process to be food-contact eligible, earning a “Letter of Non-Objection” from the FDA

Silgan Dispensing's expanding portfolio of new PCR products includes more than 80 color options for select projects and regions, incorporating a wide range of dispensers, sprayers, triggers and closures manufactured using recovered materials.

Why standardization is key to driving sustainability across the packaging industry

Silgan Dispensing is a member of Cetie, and several members of our team are involved with its various working groups, including one that focuses on screw necks or glass bottles: the Flaconnage Geometry Group. We recently talked with Juan Albi, project team leader for Silgan Dispensing’s beauty and personal care, and Sandy Gregory, director of fragrance marketing, to share about our company’s relationship with Cetie and how new standards are driving sustainability across the industry.

How has the pandemic impacted consumers' use and relationship with fragrances?

The impact scent can have on a mood and overall sense of wellbeing is nearly impossible to overstate. One fragrance can elicit feelings of coziness and comfort, while another can give a person a sense of luxury and distinction. Given the seemingly endless variations of fragrances and personal uses, it’s no surprise the fragrance market has seen such steady profitability in recent years – at least, prior to COVID-19.
