At the moment whenever you pick up a paper, turn on the TV or Radio or access social media, one story is bound to feature; pollution of the planet by plastic. Plastics are cheap and ubiquitous and we have become so accustomed to using them in every area of our life, that it is easy not to reflect on how we could achieve the same satisfaction whilst using less of them. In the long term we will need to find innovative ways to replace plastics with reusable alternatives. In the meantime we believe we all have a moral obligation to do everything we can to reduce plastic consumption and use right now!

The use of plastic in transit packaging is certainly not something we can get rid of immediately, but businesses can have a major impact on the weight of plastic transit packaging they use if they move to the new generation of thinner, high performance pallet wraps which are available today!

For example, switching from a 23 micron thick film to an 11 micron film will reduce the amount of plastic used by over 50% - a massive reduction. The thinner high performance film may be a little more expensive per roll than a traditional wrap, but because much less is applied there is usually a substantial cost saving!

Agritel supplies a complete range of thin high performance films for hand and machine application. We can help most businesses to reduce their plastic use and save money at the same time!
