Global compliance and hygiene concerns require clothing to be protected during transit - usually by fossil-based polyethylene (PE) packaging. As online sales continue to grow and customers become more aware of the harmful environmental effects of plastic bags,an alternative is urgently needed and sought-after.
Avery Dennison's BioFlex™ is a sustainable, cyclable alternative that's identical in appearance to PE packaging. This biobased polybag is designed to protect clothes and the environment, providing transit-flexible packaging with a carbon-negative footprint.
Producing Avery Dennison BioFlex™ removes more CO2 from the atmosphere than it emits, and surplus energy is returned to the national grid. Avery Dennison's polybag is made of 100% responsibly sourced, purpose-grown and renewable sugar cane, cutting the use of fossil-based materials by up to 97%. It is 100% recyclable, and will not contaminate the waste stream.
With online sales only set to increase, eliminating protective plastic will appeal to eco-conscious consumers, while aiding the planet .
