Time to rethink plastic?

So we’ve all seen recent media coverage regarding plastic pollution – much of this is completely avoidable by recycling or using one of the compostable options which we’ve offered for over 10 years. Our standard LDPE code 4 polyfilm is fully recyclable. So chuck it in your recycling bin, simple.

We’ve offered compostable film alternatives for years. It’s a great alternative and goes straight in your green bin instead, it costs a few pennies more but it’s cheaper than paper. These films have recently improved to be clearer and have a longer shelf life prior to use so will only degrade after use.

Organisations such as the RSPB & the National Trust have adopted compostable poly for the distribution of their publications. True, they are huge runs but due to increased demand compostable poly can now be bought by the roll, off the shelf so it can be used for shorter run lengths.

Compostable Polythene Facts:
· The fully degradable polythene is made from potato starch and does not contain any plastics, harmful toxins or oil based materials
· The polythene has a softer feel compared to plastic and also has a slightly milkier finish
· It can simply be put out with your garden waste or dug into the soil so it decomposes
· Compostable polythene may be more expensive than recyclable polythene but it can degrade within days/weeks in the right environment

Polythene was introduced to reduce the deforestation needed to meet paper demands, it serves a purpose, it’s lightweight so cheaper to post out, it’s also recyclable, and has less impact on the environment when it’s made.

Our team are here to help you choose the best solution, paper, poly or does it even need to be wrapped at all? Let us help you out.
