Recycled Bucket Content FAQ's

As part of Saint-Gobain's wider sustainability mission to become carbon net zero by 2050, Weber UK & Ireland has its own sustainability targets to become a more sustainable construction materials business.

A key element of this is reducing the amount of virgin plastic packaging we use and send out to customers. We already had a commitment that our plastic packaging would contain a minimum of 30% recycled content. We’ve decided to go further than this by introducing plastic buckets containing 50% recycled content.
