LES SECRETS DE LÉONTINE REDUCES PLASTIC USE BY 60% WITH JABIL’S ECO.BOTTLE
Founded a decade ago nearby the city of Lille, CBS Products is a wholesaler with a focus on household products — including cleaning, laundry, health and beauty and kitchen goods.
In early 2020, the company launched Les Secrets de Léontine, a series of eco-friendly household cleaning products made with 100 percent natural ingredients. Most of these products are based on traditional but effective recipes left behind by French grandmothers. When the products launched, they were only available in the north of France. But in just over a year, they’ve expanded and are now available nationwide.
After studying all the sustainable packaging options on the market, company CEO Grégory Dubos was fascinated when he came across the Eco.Bottle® by Ecologic Brands, powered by Jabil.
“This bottle is the most sustainable offering you can have on the market; I’ve studied all of them,” Dubos says.
The product bottles consist of two recycled cardboard shells covering a refined plastic liner (which is also recycled) and use 60 percent less plastic than rigid plastic bottles.
“Our company passes on the traditions and recipes of older generations to new ones. I am very happy with the collaboration with Ecologic and Jabil because they help us bring our products to market in the most environmentally friendly way,” Dubos concludes.
