about Polythene

Supporting businesses to make the right decisions

Polythene UK is committed to helping businesses meet their packaging regulation obligations. Our award-winning and innovative packaging products are specifically designed to reduce wastage and minimise harm to the environment.

Polylite™ is a tough and lightweight polythene that reduces consumption by 20%, leading to much less plastic waste. Another key product, Polyair™ is bio-based carbon neutral polythene, made from sugar cane and 100% recyclable. Our starch-based Polycomp™ bags are designed to break down naturally after use so there’s no need for them to be recycled.

Carbon neutral packaging: The Carbon Trust certifies our bags

The Carbon Trust’s independent certification arm has certified our biopolyethylene bags to PAS2060, the internationally-recognised standard for certifying carbon negativity.

Sustainability matters. As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of plastic packaging we are acutely conscious of this. This is why we are constantly taking steps to develop products made from cleaner plastic polymers with smaller carbon footprints.

“We recognise that as a business we need to play a role in the transition to a low carbon economy. By working with the Carbon Trust to better understand the lifecycle impacts of our biopolyethylene bags we can be confident that they [helping] to provide our clients with a more sustainable product.”

Our biopolyethylene is one such polymer, designed specifically to lower our clients’ carbon footprints and contribute towards a cleaner, more sustainable carbon economy.

We’re proud to be working with the Carbon Trust

Post-Consumer Waste (PCW)

We are currently using the latest washing and optical sorting technology they can produce better quality regenerated polymer. Thanks to the efforts of Polythene UK and the combined collaboration of various sectors, we can now produce films and tubes suitable for the industrial sector that are made from after-use recycled material.

This has required a complete and modelled integration from the waste collection to its conversion into a new product. But why did we integrate ourselves? In order to have the control of our waste and to give security to our customers in the supply’s sustainability and in the batch’s reliability and traceability.
