Recycling

 

The polythene products Initial Packaging Solutions Limited currently provide have been specifically designed to be a part of the environmental solution.

 

We at Initial Packaging genuinely believe that by producing our envelopes and bags from the most lightweight and durable material, which properly protect the goods. We are helping to protect the environment. Without the use of these advanced polythene materials, the damage to our environment from the use of heavier and more rigid materials would be significantly detrimental.

 

Furthermore, after fulfilling their primary purpose our polythene products give additional environmental benefits as they can be:-

  1. Re-used,
  2. Recycled into new products,
  3. Generate energy through incineration.

 We are all consumers within our world. At Initial Packaging Solutions we clearly recognise that we all need to do our 'bit' for the environment.

The Future

We are fully supportive of any changes in behavior that produces a net environmental benefit providing these proposed changes have been carefully researched and are not part of some misguided cause from an, “I must change the world” group or individual. We will also continue to actively encourage and facilitate initiatives that reduce unnecessary packaging and promote opportunities for re-use and recycling.

 

We are further committed to helping the general public understand the facts about polythene whilst retaining a sense of perspective in the face of those who see packaging as an easy populist target. The facts continue to speak for themselves in countries where inadequate packaging causes significant and avoidable wastage. There is also the risk of  diverting the attention from the much greater challenges posed by our society's impact on our planet through consumption, travel and energy use.

 

Ultimately, it will be people not inanimate objects that will affect the impact of packaging on the environment and our world. We are delighted to say that whilst continuing into the future we at Initial Packaging Solutions Limited started doing “our bit” some 33 years ago. Polythene packaging is not the problem it is a vital part of the environmental packaging solution.
