Reducing carbon footprint
Over 90% of all plastics produced are still manufactured from dwindling supplies of crude oil, equating to a yearly global consumption of more than 250 million tons of crude oil. Bio-based plastics, meanwhile, are made partially or even completely from renewable materials. In 2014, the company introduced the first liquid glue in a bottle made from renewable materials. The UHU twist & glue ReNATURE is a multi-purpose adhesive that is ideal for a comprehensive range of gluing tasks with paper, cardboard, wood and many other materials. The bottle of this UHU glue includes 88% bio-plastic sourced from renewable sugar cane. Compared to the conventional UHU twist & glue adhesive, this reduces CO2 emissions by 46% and cuts fossil fuels by 45%, equating to a reduction of more than 50 tonnes of CO2 and savings of more than 100 barrels of crude oil each year.

In addition, the UHU twist & glue ReNATURE adhesive is completely recyclable as well as refillable. The glue itself is environmentally sound too, consisting of 70% nature-based, solvent-free ingredients.
