Up until recently Sika used a bright yellow plastic shrink wrap to protect product as it was shipped around the country to stores and construction sites.

Not many people realise that a lot of this type of recyclable plastic is sent off shore to be recycled.  There have now been some changes in the global market for recyclable material, specifically restrictions on the import on waste plastics into China.

While we are sad to see the end of the iconic yellow Sika shirnk wrap, we are glad to be making another responsible choice for the environment. 

So the next pallet of SikaGrout you see should be snuggly sealed in nice, recyclable clear shrink wrap.
