Recycled content stretch film now in stock!

Network Packaging is pleased to announce it now stocks recycled content stretch film as standard. The change applies to our stock range of hand-applied blown stretch films that are 16 micron or higher from 1 March 2021.

Available as black or clear film, the new stretch will contain a minimum of 30% recycled content.

The advantages of using recycled content film

  • Saves natural resources & reduces your impact on the environment – using recycled content packaging materials helps reduce waste going to landfill and straining valuable fossil resources. So, it helps reduce your environmental impact and supports a more sustainable supply chain. Click here to read more about how switching recycled content packaging can benefit the environment.
  • Exempt from the plastic tax – as the new film contains at least 30% recycled content, it is exempt from the incoming UK plastic packaging tax. The tax will see plastic packaging that contains less than 30% recycled content subject to a levy of £200 per tonne. Click here to learn more about this tax.
  • The same performance as virgin film – using more eco-friendly film doesn’t mean you have to compromise on performance. The load containment on our recycled content film is equivalent to 100% virgin material.
