As a company we are aware that there are concerns about the use of polythene bags and their potential damage to the environment. As an option across our whole range, we are proud to be able to offer an additional additive free of charge which allows the polythene to decompose quicker than it normally would. We also offer a plant based ‘green’ polyethylene produced from sugarcane, a renewable raw material. Being a renewable feedstock, sugarcane captures and fixes CO2 from the atmosphere every growth cycle, which occurs annually. This means that the production of sugar cane polythene contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional polythene, made from fossil materials. As a result the carbon footprint of sugar cane polythene is negative. We are able to print logos onto your bags for both of these options so that your customers are aware that you are also addressing this issue.
We also recycle 100% of all of our waste material into the material that we use for our black refuse bags, closing the recycling circle.
