Sustainability

  • Replacing Harmful PVC Films: The POF Shrink Film from Bagla Group serves as a highly functional and chemically inert alternative to traditional PVC shrink film. PVC films contain chloride, a toxic substance. During manufacturing, they emit corrosive fumes and degrade into harmful components when discarded. Forward-thinking companies have committed to eliminating PVC from their packaging.
  • Optimized Packaging Efficiency: Thanks to its inherent properties, POF Shrink Films can operate at lower thicknesses, resulting in reduced plastic consumption. Additionally, their balanced shrinkage ensures a snug package wrap, minimizing space requirements during transportation and lowering fuel consumption.
  • Minimizing Landfill Waste: Bagla’s manufacturing processes prioritize recycling and internal reuse, effectively achieving zero waste sent to landfills.
  • Sustainable Packaging Choices: All packaging cores and boxes are crafted from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Furthermore, the core plugs are fully recyclable.
  • Recycled Content Specifications: The film can be supplied with a plastic tax-avoiding 30%+ post-industrial waste recycled content. Rigorous certification ensures traceability throughout the entire regranulation process, without compromising performance or appearance.
  • Full Recyclability: The film is classified at LDPE level 4 and is a BO-PE mono-material, simplifying recycling. Additionally, it offers the option to include recycled content in the blend.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Plastic Packaging Tax is a new tax that came into effect on April 1st, 2022. The purpose of this tax is to encourage the use of more recycled plastic. It applies to all plastic packaging produced or imported into the UK that doesn’t contain at least 30% recycled plastic.

The rate of the Plastic Packaging Tax is fixed at £210.82 per tonnes of plastic packaging placed onto the UK market. The Plastic Packaging Tax applies to businesses that manufacture or import plastic packaging components or import packaged goods into the UK.

Several European nations are introducing comprehensive taxes on plastic packaging, with Spain, Italy, and the UK at the forefront.

The topic of Plastic Tax has been under discussion in the United States, but unlike European countries, there isn’t a nationwide plastic tax in place. However, there have been proposals and discussions regarding plastic taxes at the state and local levels.

BX-Earth is available as both the variants, i.e. in cross-linked and non-crossed Linked technology.
