With the increasing demand for sustainable packaging, OXO Packaging has introduced biodegradable mylar bags for various products.
Traditional mylar bags are made from polyester film (PET), which is not sustainable. PET is a plastic-based material that can harm the environment. After all these facts, mylar bags are still in high demand because of their other benefits. They are resealable, reusable, and child-resistant. These features make them an excellent choice for food and CBD businesses.
Considering the demand for mylar bags, OXO Packaging has introduced mylar bags made from sustainable materials. They will use bio-based films and PLA films to make these bags sustainable. This will have a positive impact on the environment and make packaging better.
“The earth is our home, and we are responsible for protecting it. Packaging waste plays a significant role in degrading the environment. The packaging process produces waste materials that negatively impact the environment. We have a commitment towards sustainability, and we hope that this step will help us reduce our carbon footprint. We also hope to bring more innovations in the packaging industry to improve product packaging the way you know it.” says the company’s CEO.
What Effects Will This Decision Have on The Industry?
When asked this question, the company’s production manager replied;
“As technology advances, the environment degrades more and more. It is about time we use it for something better. By opting for sustainable mylar bags, we are sure to minimize our environmental impact. If our friends in the packaging industry also start using these materials, we can have a much larger impact on improving the environment.”
