Sometimes an initiative that better protects the environment is blocked by regulations.
It is only a few years ago that we changed the net weight of our Halamid buckets from 5 to 6 kg. This resulted in a savings in packaging waste of 20 %. Early 2012 we will be forced to re-introduce the 5 kg buckets. Transport regulations for exempted quantities have changed and set a limit of 5 kg now, where this used to be 6 kg. There will be no other changes to the product or its packaging. We will now be looking at other ways to save on packaging materials.
