Our bag in boxes can be recycled. One 5L box is the almost equivalent to 10 x 500ml bottles, so as well as keeping products fresher (unlike an opened bottle, no air gets in) it is one of the most compact and environmentally sound options for beverages!
Bag in Box Packaging
Bag-in-Box has around 8 times lower carbon footprint than glass bottles. Unlike smaller PET bottles or snack packs, Bag-in-Box are not among the plastic products frequently found on beaches or generally in the environment.
The concept is not only more economical, but is greener! A low packaging to high amount of product ratio (a 5L box is the equivalent of 10x 500ml bottles with tops etc.) the inner plastic can be easily seperated from the card board outer and, if there are no specific plastic recycling options availablle near you, can usually be placed in the general waste for energy production. In our local area, the general waste from homes is delivered to a mechanical treatment facility in Greater Manchester. The waste is shredded and then transported by train to the Energy Recovery facility in Runcorn. There is a similar power plant in Raikes Lane, Bolton.
On balance, bag in box packaging is a great way to save energy and reduce C02 emissions, with its lower food to packaging weight. One truck transporting 5 litre bags and boxes is equivalent to more than 7 trucks transporting 75cL bottles, and all the fuel and C02 emissions associated, plus there is is breakage, less waste due to long shelf live and no air spoilage. Outer can also be stored, compressed flat and recycled easily as most authorities are able to process cardboad.

Packaging for deliveries
Bottles are packed safe and snug into air-pak bags and cardboard box outer. Inflatable packaging is one of the most effective methods for protecting fragile items in transit, with zero low levels of breakages. achieved by customers over a period of an entire year. Thats a significant reduction in hassle and wasteful replacements.
Once inflated, Air-paks consist of only 2% plastic and 98% air - they're pretty much as light as air! Air-paks are therefore having a positive effect on reducing our carbon footprint by lightening the load.
How can I deflate an AirPack?
Its simple. Carefully cut through the bag with a pair of scissors, screw the AirPack up and place into your recycling bin. They'll squash down to 2% of the size!
What happens if an AirPack gets punctured?
Even if one or more air chambers becomes punctured the adjacent chambers remain inflated and the goods remain protected.
Are AirPacks Recyclable?
Yes our AirPaks are 100% Recyclable.
Are they suitable for use and transportation on Aircraft?
Yes. They can be re-used for your own packaging use.
AirPak inflatable bags are made from PET LDPE 4 material, which is 100% recyclable. LDPE plastics are beginning to be accepted through kerbside recycling schemes, but there is still a way to go in improving the understanding of which types of plastic can be recycled, such as yoghurt pots and plastic trays.
When it comes to protective packaging, there are a number of other environmental benefits for plastic over paper, but reducing the weight of deliveries is a key part as our packaging is lower weight than the alternatives.
There is also a very minimal amount of plastic, and switching to paper or cardboard and other alternatives is not the simple green solution some may think, as the energy required to produce a paper bag is between four to fives more than a plastic bag, both production processes require water, but paper production is a particularly water intensive process, using approximately 15 times more water and paper manufacturing generates 80% more greenhouse gas emissions than plastic bags.
