In DeBeukelaer’s factory outlets, customers can do some sustainable shopping. Since the beginning of this year, Prinzen Rolle, Soft Cake and other delicious biscuits and confectioneries have been stowed in resource-economical shopping baskets bearing the Blue Angel. DeBeukelaer is thus taking another step forward in reducing environmental impact and saving on valuable resources, a cause embraced by the company for many years now. The material for the new sustainable shopping baskets comes from Der Grüne Punkt: they are made of recyclate from the Systalen brand, produced in Der Grüne Punkt’s plastics recycling factory in North Rhine-Westphalia from plastic waste obtained from the Yellow Sack. The Gies company from Niederaula near Fulda uses this material to manufacture the shopping baskets. This creates a special product that can now be found in all the factory outlets.
