Over time plastic bags have become indispensable to modern-day industries. They’re used for packaging most consumer goods and carrying groceries and trash. However, due to plastic’s widespread use and lengthy decomposition process, there is a growing interest in more sustainable alternatives.
In recent years, the development of plant-based polymer plastics has made great strides toward becoming the go-to material for eco-friendly food packaging bags, industrial plastic films, and more.
Why Should You Choose Plastic’s More Sustainable Alternative?
Using more sustainable poly bags is better for the planet. It’s really that simple. And somehow, the benefits do not stop there. Due to their unique properties, plant-based poly bags are more likely to biodegrade than traditional plastics. They boast the same outstanding durability and versatility needed to withstand widespread use.
Together, these benefits are drastically changing the industry by providing manufacturers with an affordable and sustainable way to meet growing consumer demands while reducing the industry’s reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels.
Additional notable benefits of using more sustainable plant-based poly bags are:
- Lightweight and slim packaging materials
- Lower shipping costs
- Compostable and recyclable products
- Reusable bags
How Plant-Based Polymer Makes the Most Eco-Friendly Food Packaging Bags
Along with its vast array of benefits, the technology used to develop greener poly bags is revolutionizing how we make plastics. The eco-friendly alternatives use NuPlastiQ technology to incorporate up to 20% plant-based material in the final product. Rather than relying on non-renewable resources, plant-based poly uses agricultural resources like potatoes, corn, and cassava to create a one-of-a-kind biopolymer.
Once developed, these unique biopolymers can be used to manufacture sustainable alternatives for nearly any kind of plastic. In recent years, plant-based poly bags have become the most-eco friendly food packaging bags, and in some cases, they have begun replacing traditional plastic bags altogether.
Common Applications for Eco-Friendly Packaging:
As its popularity increases, global industries will find various new uses for plant-based plastics. However, for now, one of its most common applications is as a blown film.
Manufacturing blown film products requires a detailed process that often ends in creating plastic bags and films used for agricultural and industrial packaging. Using plant-based plastics is becoming more common, as consumers and manufacturers are drawn to the material’s low toxicity and food-safe qualities, making them an excellent option for applications ranging from food to pharmaceuticals.
