The Positive Side of Plastic
Environmentally Friendly Solutions
Plastic. Yes, we want to talk about plastic and its positives. Despite what the news would have you believe – not all plastics are bad.
We are not here to preach to the masses that plastic, in general, is not destroying ecosystems and affecting our planet. Because that is a fact. But we are here to educate on the different types of plastics available. Some of these plastics are actually good for the environment. The British Plastics Federation created an informative document regarding the importance of plastics, this can be accessed here.
Polypropylene (PP5) is made up purely of carbon and hydrogen and is manufactured without any dangerous emissions. This cannot be said for cardboard or polystyrene alternatives. PP5 has been recently praised for its properties in Quora.

The truth about plastic packaging
Polypropylene packaging is the perfect solution for your business
Polypropylene packaging is the most versatile packaging material available. This means it is suitable for multiple applications. Polypropylene has similar properties to polyethene and polybutene but it is much stronger and heat resistant. Thus making it perfect for sturdy environmentally friendly packaging.
Adding antistatic additives means that polypropylene surfaces can resist dust and dirt. Therefore making it versatile for the chilled, fresh and frozen food industries as well as being safe and certified for the pharmaceuticals sector.

How friendly is eco-friendly?...
Polypropylene can be incinerated without any harm to the environment, it gives off only water-vapour and carbon dioxide, which is then converted by photosynthesis.
Polypropylene is made up purely of carbon and hydrogen and is manufactured without any dangerous emissions, therefore, has zero effect on the environment.
Reduced Storage Costs
Tri-Pack packaging can reduce your storage costs and space by as much as 85% due to our unique flat-packed design. Our patented easy-erect design will complete the box in seconds.
Polypropylene will biodegrade 2,000 quicker than your standard plastic bottle and 400 times quicker than a single carrier bag.
Using our own unique tooling we seal the fluted edges of our packaging, this creates a strong barrier which becomes imperishable to dirt, dust, water and oils.
Every component of our packaging; the plastic, glues and inks are 100% recyclable.
Reduced Delivery Costs
We can reduce your delivery costs as our packaging is light weight and with our unique flat pack design, more packaging can fit on a single pallet.
100% Recyclable Packaging
This form of plastic packaging does not end up in seas and oceans affecting the ecosystems and damaging animal habitats. Because it is 100% recyclable. Once the product has been used, it can be used time and time again. Through a relatively straightforward and environmentally friendly method of granulation and reprocessing.
In extreme cases, if the packaging is disposed of incorrectly, it will eventually biodegrade. In fact, it is 2,000 quicker for polypropylene to biodegrade than your standard plastic bottle or 400 times quicker than a single carrier bag.Explore our recycling initatives...
