Online shopping is on the up and it is necessary to also deliver the sold goods intact to the customers. Often, plastic-based materials are used to prevent mechanical damage to products in the logistics chain.
In 2012, over 250 million tonnes of bulk plastics were produced globally. Half of Europe’s plastic waste goes to landfill. Also, 10 million tonnes of rubbish ends up in the seas and oceans of the world every year, and most of it is plastic.
By using fibre-based materials in packing – also inside packaging – we can save non-renewable natural resources.
