We’re very mindful at Transcontinental Australasia of our responsibility to leave a minimal footprint on our environment. That’s why we’re committed to developing alternate packaging products to standard fossil fuel based PE. We’ve extensively trialled non-petroleum based resins (Green PE), and also developed several products using pre-consumer recycled plastic and are trialling clean sources of post-consumer recycled plastics to add to our product portfolio. In addition, we are launching and expanding our paper range for customers who now have a preference for non-plastic packaging.
