Performance equal to oil-based polyethylene bags

Derived from ethanol made from sugar cane, plant-based polyethylene (PE) is a renewable material that means bags can be made without any difference in appearance, colour or texture in comparison to fossil PE bags. The bags also have the same properties of strength, elasticity and watertightness.
Fully recyclable, they are collected along with plastic packaging and can also be transformed into energy if collected with household waste.
