We live in increasingly eco-conscious times. Issues like energy efficiency, waste reduction and the
need for increased recycling have never been higher on the political, social or economic agenda.
Polythene packaging is often targeted as unnecessary and wasteful and its real environmental benefits in protecting and preserving products throughout the supply chain are often ignored.
Thanks to the efforts of companies like British Polythene Industries PLC (BPI) who have long been
working to reconcile the needs of the environment with those of the customer, polythene can
actually be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. This site hopes to show how this is
possible by exploring the facts and exploding the fiction to reveal the real truth about polythene
packaging and the environment.
