Due to the Covid-19 crisis we will only start using our marine safe bags from July 2020.
MARINE SAFE GARMENT BAGS
Through research we have tried to keep all our packaging carbon neutral and preferably biodegradable. We needed to protect both our products as well making sure these wouldn't have a negative environmental impact.
With this new Hydropol™ technology we have managed to get our hands into a bag that it's not actual plastic and that in case it ends up at sea, it won't be harmful to sea life.
The actual purpose of this is bag is to be disposed at home by using warm/hot water which will immediately dissolve the bag without leaving any traces of micro plastics or any other toxic material.
It can also be disposed into landfill and it will simply biodegrade itself. Read a bit more about this amazing material below.
Water soluble, recyclable, and biodegradable, our new Leave No Trace bags break down harmlessly into non-toxic biomass in soil and sea, should it escape into the environment (just in case). We are proud to be part of the very few in our industry to use this ground-breaking technology, eliminating the final piece of non-degradable plastic from our packaging.
Hydropol™ bags are inherently biodegradable. When given the right balance of environment and microbial presence it will biodegrade to carbon dioxide, water and mineralised natural biomass.
The positive implications for animals and the natural environment are significant. As consumer packaging is on the increase in our increasingly on-line world, the harmful effects on the environment caused by littering can thereby be checked.
With current initiatives around the world to reduce greenhouse gas generation from organic waste in landfill, and to turn waste to energy, there is a requirement for an efficient means of transporting the organic waste from food manufacturers, supermarkets and restaurants to Anaerobic Digestion (AD) sites.
Most current compostable bags are not suitable for this, and the organic matter has to be de-bagged, alongside any polybags, before put into AD. Organic waste bags made from Hydropol™ are suitable for AD.
From mid March 2020, all our products will be packed using these amazing bags.
We won't save the world alone but we sure can help.
