Why should you use sustainable pallet covers?
Sustainable pallet covers can improve your carbon footprint and reduce your overall costs.
Traditional polythene is the most widely produced type of plastic available. However, it is also widely known as a material that’s bad for the environment. Research for ‘The New Plastics Economy: rethinking the future of plastics’ estimates that only 5% of plastic packaging is recycled globally, compared to 40% that is deposited in landfills.
Eco-friendly polythene provides a solution to this problem, giving your business a sustainable, cost-effective alternative to traditional plastics.
Why is traditional polythene so bad for the environment?
Traditional polythene is made from fossil fuels like natural gas and oil. These resources are in limited supply. They are also incredibly damaging to the environment.
Polythene is recyclable but this process takes time and costs money. Even with restrictions in place, millions of tonnes of plastic still ends up in landfill sites. Excess plastic in the environment is also damaging to ecosystems and wildlife.
As a result of the sheer volume of waste polythene produced in industry, businesses have a responsibility to consider greener choices so as not to contribute further to this growing problem.

Your alternative: sustainable pallet covers
Sustainable polythene, or bio-polythene as it’s sometimes called, is good for the environment on two levels.
Firstly, it saves fossil fuels by providing an alternative to their use.
Secondly, as a plant derivative, bio-polythene actually draws in carbon dioxide during crop growth, meaning it helps to combat excess carbon dioxide in the environment.
Sustainable polythene also provides business benefits.
