At our Manchester site we produce our own sheet using 90% recycled material that is predominantly made from used plastic bottles. This is then coated with a thin food grade virgin layer on the top and the bottom so that it is compliant with EEC Commission Directives for food packaging. All of our products are 100% recyclable and the fact that the material can be recycled many times over, makes it one of the most environmentally packaging formats. So please, if you see anyone throwing plastics into our oceans, ask them to put it into recycling bins instead so that we can reuse it!
"Plastics are a reusable resource that need to be disposed of responsibly and recycled whenever possible. Focussing efforts on improving public understanding, reducing littering and enhancing the UK's recycling infrastructure would be a better way of achieving a sustainable future" ~ British Plastics Federation (BPF).
