Plastic litter is a significant environmental pollutant. If all plastic waste from the oceans would be packed in plastic bags, it would amount to 15 full plastic bags against every meter of coastline in the world. For example the EU has taken a strict policy in its new directive to reduce plastic carrier bag consumption. Replacements are needed for plastic bags. With the patented technology of Finnish Paptic Ltd it is possible to challenge plastic use in carrier bags and other flexible packaging.
