As a responsible corporate citizen and in line with efforts towards reducing international environmental concerns, the company is acutely aware of its important role in contributing towards reducing the negative impact of plastic bag pollution to our ecosystems, natural habitats and wildlife.
In line with this, the company is an active participant in efforts to introduce more environmentally friendly products through its incorporation with the EPI group of companies -a global technology group and pioneer of oxo-biodegradable additive technology and Totally Degradable Plastic Additive (TDPA). EPl’s TDPA works by breaking down polyethylene bags that are normally water-resistant or hydrophobic into a water-absorbing “hydrophilic” form.
As a result of this chemical process, TDPA biodegradable bags can then be broken down in the same way micro-organisms would break down “normal” degradable waste – into Carbon Dioxide (CO2), water and non-toxic bio-mass. The increased use and provision of recycled plastic waste and materials by the company represents another significant step in its growing contribution towards reducing such environmental pollution.
