Planet Packaging aim to make printed plastic bags intelligent so they start to degrade once they have come to the end of their useful life, this is usually when it enters landfill. The heat of landfill will accelerate the degrading process of any of the additives listed above leaving inert molecules which cause no harm to the environment.
If you see the recyclable logo above, the polythene of the printed plastic bags is able to be recycled. This involves it being cleaned and re granulated, its then graded, extruded back into film and used to make black bin sacks, rubble sacks, builders film which is used for damp proof lining amongst other things. Even with biodegradable additives it is still possible to recycle the film.
Printed plastic bags are still popular in comparison to paper as they are cheaper and more compact so storage is not a problem when retail space is at a premium. With so many options on bag styles available please don’t hesitate to contact us for a no obligation quote.
