To help us further develop our business as a force for good, we are delighted to share that we have embarked on our B Corp journey.
B Corps are businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental performance. They’re transparent and legally accountable. Globally there are over 7000 B Corps, and over 1700 in the UK.
The process to become B Corp Certified is intentionally rigorous. As we begin to navigate the B Impact Assessment (BIA) we are looking forward to celebrating the good work we are already doing, learning how we can improve, and embedding social and environmental performance into the culture of our organisation.
We will update you from time to time as we progress.

Flexible packaging. Your eco-friendliest packaging solution.
If you dispose of it in the right way, flexible plastic is easily your eco-friendliest packaging solution. And when you factor in its increased shelf life, decreased carbon footprint and recyclability, it’s a great green choice for any industry.
All our bulk bags are made from polypropylene, a widely recycled material that’s safe to recycle over and over. They’re grouped into three different types to make sure they’re recycled the right way:
Clean, bright white, coloured stitching & handles
Not as clean, duller white, minimal stitching
Dirty or coloured bags
Once they’re grouped, you simply bale them ready for collection from any recognised bulk bag recycling centre. There, they’ll be sorted, cleaned, melted down and produced into pellets. Ready to begin life again as a brand new plastic product. And if you choose bulk bags made to a 6:1 safety factor, you can use them safely, over and over – and still recycle them when they’re done. An eco-friendly, cost-effective solution.
Using a bulk bag instead of multiple WPP sacks will reduce your loading time and save you money. You’d need 40 x 25kg WPP sacks to carry 1 tonne of product – or you can use just one bulk bag…
Made from the same material as bulk bags (polypropylene), WPP sacks are known for their strength and durability. Use your sack safely over and again, and when it’s done, just recycle.
Made from LLDPE (Linear Low-Density Polythene), part of Recycling Group 4, you can recycle this wrap at any carrier bag recycling point.
Our longstanding paper sacks suppliers use FSC certified paper, so all our sacks are recyclable. Just remember to remove any foil/plastic liners and plastic handles.
Our trusted cardboard suppliers also use FSC certified paper to create our cardboard products. Widely recyclable, you can put all our cardboard with your kerbside collection.
Even when you apply BOPP lamination to your WPP bag for printing, it’s still completely recyclable.

Any of your bulk bags that can’t be recycled (perhaps because of their colouring or content contamination – like Grade C bags) are sent to be burnt at a ‘waste for energy’ plant.
Just like a coal burning plant that creates electricity by burning coal, a waste-to-energy plant burns your waste and turns it into electricity. A brilliant way to reduce our environmental impact, it not only creates energy from waste but also reduces the amount of waste going into our landfills.
