Muc-Off surpasses plastic-free packaging goal

Published July 21, 2021

POOLE, England (BRAIN) — Bike and motorcycle care company Muc-Off announced Wednesday it exceed a goal to reduce plastic packaging and will expand its Project Green initiatives.

Last year, Muc-Off wanted to eliminate 30 metric tons of plastic from its products by 2023. A year and a half later, the company announced it had removed 94 metric tons. Now the goal is 200 metric tons by 2023.

Muc-Off has updated many products from plastic shipping packaging to recyclable cardboard. Items like the Premium Brush Kits and X3 Chain Machine are now shipped and sold in cardboard boxes. Muc-Off said Wednesday that many more products soon will be shipped plastic-free.

"It's awesome to have reached our latest milestone," said Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off CEO. "Our new target is to make sure that we're continuing to push full steam ahead in our mission to save as much plastic as we can. We've made phenomenal progress in the last year, but there's so much more work to do. ...."

In addition to reducing plastic packaging, Muc-Off said it has removed PTFEs from all spray protectants and lubes. PTFEs can harm wildlife when they drain into water sources, so Muc-Off developed and continues to work on alternative formulas.

Another aspect of Project Green are refill stations at bike and powersport dealers. Customers can refill Nano Tech Bike Cleaner bottles, saving the environment and cash. Muc-Off said it will expand the refill program, with lubes soon available.
