My inner packaging geek is missing spotting IBCs, drums, kegs, jerrycans and CurTec containers in wonderful and strange places. Working from home and travelling to and from the office just once a week, whilst visiting only the supermarket at the weekends really doesn’t provide me with many opportunities to eagle eye some unusual packaging antics.
That said, I did leap off the sofa last night whilst catching up on SAS: Who Dares Wins when I spotted an IBC being used to supply outdoor toilets and showers with water. PurePac often supplies many of the UK based movie/film studios with IBCs or Drums for props. However, alas – on this occasion we cannot claim fame!
Here are a few of my favourites, from left to right – a solitary IBC in a Peak District field; a CurTec wide neck drum in a Mallorcan fishing shop; a plastic tighthead drum on approach to an Ibiza beach and finally an IBC turned into a tabletop on a beach in Greece.
After reminiscing over these pictures, my inner packaging nerd is hoping to add some more to my collection very soon!
