Details

Brought to you by Polythene UK, the exclusive Polyair™ product is the only 100% recyclable, carbon positive material currently available. New Polyair™ material is bio-based, made from sugar cane it’s the process of photosynthesis as the plant grows that makes this product carbon positive. The sugar cane actively captures CO2 from the atmosphere, while at the same time releasing oxygen – making this material not just green, but proactively green.
