the GREEN side of Snips

PASS THE TEST OF TIME

slide_001_1000

FORGET DISPOSABLE PRODUCTS.

Plastic bags and disposable packaging are invading the seas and polluting the Earth:

in the world about half of the waste plastic is generated by disposable packs.

From this evidence project Snips takes life: create solutions for home, work or school, leisure, that can last in years, day after day. Our containers, as well as our bottles are conceived to last for a long time time, in order to reduce disposable plastic consumption.

Every person, with a shrewd and conscious use, can become the protagonist of this project for the environment.

Use and reuse the Snips products: be eco friendly!

IMPROVING FOOD PRESERVATION & DECREASING FOOD WASTE

slide_002

A lot of household organic waste comes from improper storage of food. Unsuitable containers are used to store food which then deteriorates and ends up in the bin.

We also waste all the energy that was used to produce the food and we create more pollution for landfills.

Snips makes containers that help preserve food for longer, keeping the nutritional properties unaltered.

We make sure that less waste translates into better health for the planet.

PLASTICS MADE TO LAST

slide_003_frigo

Snips products are made to be used every day and they’re made to last.

Subject to rigorous tests and checks, all our products are guaranteed to go from the low temperatures of freezers and fridges to the high temperatures of microwave ovens and dishwashers, without any deformation, discolouration or release of harmful substances which could come into contact with food.

These products truly last for years and contribute to a significant reduction in the amount of plastic thrown away.

And, when these products have reached the end of their lives, they are 100% recyclable.

Special attention is also given to packaging and labelling, which also comply with this fundamental requirement of sustainability.

Safeguarding the planet is our objective too.

SAFETY OF MATERIALS

slide_004_ok

Snips doesn’t use Polycarbonate in its production lines (where BPA is present) and doesn’t use PVC (material in which Phthalates are present).

The mark 0% BPA on a pack or on plastic products indicates the absence of Bisphenol A (BPA) in manufacturing the product.

Snips guarantees that all raw materials used in the manufacture of their products do not contain Bisphenol A.

All the necessary indications for a correct and safe use and treatment of materials are included, which make sure the Snips products last longer and are always efficient.

All plastic materials we employ our production are certified and our products are tested by Hansecontrol Hamburg and TÜV Rheinland according to the best standards for food contact and customers’ specific requirements.

The symbol 7 affixed to our products indicates different materials: TRITAN, SAN; STYROLUX, TPE. They are all «noble» materials, of the last generation, carefully selected and treated. If the products have different components, the code 07 serves to indicate the mix of plastic substances.

This code or symbol does not in any way indicate harmful or toxic substances. All Snips products are subject to the strictest FOOD CONTACT controls.

The fact that Snips products are made to last over time emphasizes CORPORATE AWARENESS TO ABANDON UNCONTROLLED USE OF DISPOSABLE PLASTICS.

A ZERO KM PRODUCT

All the manufacturing, assembly and packaging is done in Italy.

Every shipment departs from the facility at Ossago Lodigiano to minimize the movement of goods, ensuring a smaller environmental impact throughout the entire supply chain.

Our manufacturing facilities also use low-energy plants and systems.
