A Weight off your Mind about Plastic Use

A Weight off your Mind about Plastic Use

Cromwell Polythene showcasing lighter, cost effective, more environmentally-friendly plastics range at the Cleaning Show

With concern mounting about global plastics usage, Cromwell Polythene – one of the UK’s leading suppliers of sacks, bags and speciality products for the storage and collection of waste and recyclables – is delighted to be showcasing its lightweight LOWCO2T® range at the Manchester Cleaning Show from 11-12 April on stand E22.

The LOWCO2T range – including disposable aprons, laundry bags and now several varieties of refuse sacks – offers high performance, lightweight products.

Since the products require less material to achieve the same performance standards, they come packaged in smaller cartons. This means the volume of plastic used is minimised, as are the carbon emissions during production and transport. Less storage space is required too.

These many positive attributes mean that the LOWCO2T range is highly cost effective and offers great value for money. With a growing demand for a reduction in the volumes of plastic in circulation, LOWCO2T offers customers a more resource efficient and environmentally responsible alternative to some of the bigger, bulkier products in the marketplace.

The range will now be supplied in new eye-catching packaging to better promote the products environmental and performance credentials.

Cromwell Polythene Managing Director, James Lee, said: “We have been among the leading protagonists of ‘closed loop’ recycling, having used recovered waste packaging in the production of our recycled black refuse sacks for many years. During this time we have pioneered the need for increased performance from polymers at lower thicknesses to reduce the amount of plastic used.

“The LOWCO2T approach means we can offer a range of products that make the most efficient use of resources and provide a robust challenge to sacks made from other blends of polythene. For every tonne of plastic that is recycled, there is a 1.5 tonne saving in CO2, whilst thinner products can be transported in larger quantities, requiring fewer trips.

“Plastics have been having a hard time in the media recently, but they are essential for modern life, and, if manufactured and used responsibly, they can benefit the environment and enrich our lives. Come along to stand E22 to find out more.”
