Bunzl goes natural with Excellent Top™ Brown for Paper Straw Packaging
08.09.2020 - Virgin Fibre Cartonboard, Sustainability, Customer Stories
Single use plastic products have littered the environment and the headlines in recent years. Now they are on the statute book, soon they will be in the history books: Under the Single Use Plastic Strategy, as of 2021 the EU will ban single use plastic products for which there is already a more eco-friendly alternative. For the UK Company Bunzl, such a sustainable alternative are paper straws, which are naturally packed in Excellent Top™ Brown.
In everyday life, for example when when buying products, simple decisions can make a big difference. Products used for an instant today leave a legacy of waste for tomorrow. Bunzl, a leading British manufacturer of food service articles and catering supplies, offers consumers a more sustainable solution by using cellulose paper as primary material for their paper straws. The straws are both earth and marine friendly: They can be recycled and naturally degrade in oceans, rivers, and lakes. Of course, sustainability and fun do not stand in each other’s way and the colorful drinking straws are a real eye-catcher at any party or barbecue. The dispenser box made of Excellent Top™ Brown is produced by Transcend Packaging.
…and no time to waste
First impressions count at the point of sale: Excellent Top™ Brown perfectly conveys the sustainable image of the straws with its natural brown top and reverse side. Like the paper drinking straws, Excellent Top™ Brown is pure nature: fully compostable, biodegradable and recyclable.
