Our Approach
Our responsible packaging solutions are designed to be part of the environmental solution offering maximum protection with minimum material and all the polythene products we supply are and have always been 100% recyclable.
By producing our polythene products from durable lightweight protective material, we are helping to protect the environment from the use of heavier and more rigid materials that use more energy to produce, transport and store.
Our Commitment
The UK Plastics Pact brings together governments, businesses, local authorities, citizens and NGOs behind a common vision. WRAP launched The UK Plastics Pact in April 2018, working in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) to create the first national implementation of the vision for a New Plastics Economy which I am delighted to say we are already ahead of.
