Our world is rapidly changing, with an increasing focus on sustainability and the circular economy. Upac is proud to be part of this change and announce the launch of our new plastic bag range containing 50% post-industrial recycled (PIR) plastic. Post-industrial recycled plastic bags are made from plastic waste generated during the manufacturing process.
The news gets even better with bags made from 30% Post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) available from 2024. By recycling plastic bags from consumer products, it is diverted from landfills, reducing soil and water pollution.
Instead of being discarded, the waste from manufacturers and consumers is collected, cleaned, and reprocessed into new plastic bags. PIR and PCR plastic bags suit both industrial and non-food applications. They are a shining example of recycling at its best, reducing the need for virgin plastic production and thus reducing our environmental footprint.
You can trust the consistency of recycled plastic bags from Upac. Each bag is manufactured to the same rigorous quality standards as traditional plastic bags.
The concept of post-industrial recycled plastic bags fits seamlessly into the circular economy model. The circular economy is all about minimising waste and making the most of our resources. It’s about ‘closing the loop’ of product life cycles, and these bags do exactly that. By turning waste from one product’s life cycle into a resource for another, we keep plastics in use, reducing waste, and promoting resource efficiency.
Choosing to use these bags can help businesses align with environmentally conscious consumers, cut costs, and gain a competitive advantage. Apart from the clear environmental benefits, it’s a choice that resonates with customers. Today’s consumers are more environmentally conscious, and businesses that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability often find a competitive edge. Using these bags is a tangible way to show that your business cares about the planet.
