Carbon Positive Packaging

Polythene UK claims to have produced a new type of packaging that in addition to be 100% recyclable, actively removes CO2 from the atmosphere.

They call it Polyair, which is made from sugar cane and uses photosynthesis to capture CO2 and release oxygen. The company claims that for every ton of the product manufactured, 2.5 tons of CO2 will be removed.

Polyair can be used in a range of products including bags, covers, tubes, films, wraps and stretch film, and would reduce the amount of polythene waste these products generate.
