Recycling LDPE Plastic Bags & Sustainable Packaging:

Environmental sustainability is important reflected by the positive impact that recycling can have on our planet. Bag Boys is committed to promoting the recycling of LDPE (low-density polyethylene) plastic bags (used to pack our aggregates, sands and soils) and using sustainable packaging that incorporates recycled resin.

LDPE plastic bags, which we predominantly use in our packaging, can be recycled effectively in New Zealand to reduce waste and conserve resources. By collecting and recycling these bags, we can help divert them from landfills and waterways where they can take significant time to decompose.

Benefits Of Recycling LDPE plastic bags:

1. Conservation Of Resources: Recycling LDPE plastic bags allows us to conserve valuable resources such as oil, which is used in the production of virgin plastic. By using recycled resin we reduce the demand for new raw materials and hence lessen our environmental impact.

2. Energy Savings: Recycling LDPE plastic bags requires less energy compared to producing new plastic. By opting for recycled resin, we contribute to energy conservation and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions associated with plastic manufacturing.

3. Waste Reduction: Proper recycling of LDPE plastic bags helps reduce the amount of waste ending up in landfills and our natural environment. It promotes a circular economy by giving these bags a new life as recycled resin, which is used to produce new bags we then use in our packaging.

Sustainable Packaging Improvements:
Our packaging incorporate recycled resin, ensuring that the bags we use have a reduced environmental footprint. By utilizing recycled materials, we contribute to a more sustainable future by minimizing the need for virgin resources  combined with a recycling program, reducing waste.

At Bag Boys, we believe in the power of a group effort. We encourage our customers to join us in recycling LDPE plastic bags and supporting sustainable packaging initiatives, and help preserve the planet.
