  • Bags of Fun – School Pupils design new carrier bags for Asda
    fund raising campaign Bag for Life several stores owned by the supermarket chain have decided to run a similar campaign enrolling the help of local schoolchildren to create a new 6p carrier bag The move designed to create awareness and teach younger pupils aged 5 7 the importance of reusing reducing and recycling plastic and paper carrier bags will also boost the local community as all proceeds from the 6p carrier bags will go towards school funds Asda in South Shields invited the pupils from St Gregory s Primary School to express their creative skills and design a carrier bag based on the theme of community The youngsters were given the freedom to let their imaginations run wild and the result was an impressive selection of brightly coloured carrier bags with images of the seaside royal themes in honour of the Queens Diamond Jubilee families and party scenes At the Downpatrick Primary School in County Down Northern Ireland pupils were given a talk on the environmental impacts of single use carrier bags and the benefits of reusing and recycling before they were allowed to get their hands on the felt tip pens Additionally they were given a printed flyer full of interesting facts such as if carrier bags were around at the time of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 they would still be around today and the average household uses 400 carrier bags each year The completed carrier bags from both schools will make their way to Asda s head office in Leeds where they will compete with other carrier bags created by pupils from across the country A wonderful way to teach the new generation Asda s Bag for Life campaign is set to be a success as parents across the country splash out on the 6p carrier

  • Are we living in a Plastic World?
    our everyday life around a hundred years ago when Cellophane and Bakelite developed into commercially successful materials and yet if you spare a moment to look around you today you will find this wonderfully diverse material is just about everywhere From cars and kitchen appliances to furniture and electrical goods almost everything we use is made out of or includes plastic in one of its many forms and as manufacturers strive to create better lighter more energy efficient products from a cost effective material it looks as though plastics are here to stay Plastics ultimately make our lives easier and with an estimated 80 of the UK adult population holding at least one credit or debit card it just goes to show that even our money has been plasticized to keep up to date with the modern world So why do plastics get a bad rap from the environmentalists Well some may say that plastics use too many natural resources to produce that they contain harmful chemicals and that they will take at least 500 years to break down something only time will tell Others could argue that plastics make our cars and airplanes lighter and therefore more energy efficient it reduces the weight of medical equipment so it is easier to transport and as it is cheaper to manufacture than many of the alternatives it allows us all to enjoy life s little luxuries such as a laptop or mobile phone There are always two sides to every story and while it may be easy for us all to blame a simple supermarket carrier bag for the plastic waste littering up the countryside and ocean if we all make a conscious effort to reduce reuse and recycle the plastics we use we can all take advantage of this highly

  • Branding your Business – Are You Reflecting the Right Image?
    appearance of your packaging is one of the most important Packaging is not only your identity in a competitive marketplace but it can greatly influence the consumer s decision to purchase your products and services so it is crucial that the packaging you choose reflects your company ethos One only has to look at the recent value line overhauls by supermarket giants such as Tesco Morrison s and Marks Spencer s to see that plain and unattractive packaging cannot compete on the supermarket shelves Consumers may wish to save on their weekly shop but products that look cheap and unappealing rarely find their way into the shopping trolley Therefore the blue and white stripes synonymous with Tesco s basic range have been replaced with a more colourful look and the term basic has been replaced with everyday value to encourage shoppers to buy the supermarkets own brands in this time of austerity Colour plays a huge role when it comes to packaging so it is important to choose the right dominant colour for your brand A great example would be Coca Cola when you think of this popular fizzy beverage the first colour that comes to mind is red an attention grabbing and memorable colour that is ideal for this type of product Colours are generally categorised as warm or cold Warm colours such as red yellow and orange are considered energetic cheerful and optimistic while cold colours such as blue are perceived to be trustworthy calm and more reserved Black packaging is bold and powerful and has a sophisticated flair that suits high end products while white packaging is considered natural pure and eye catching in its simplicity The next stage is the quality and texture of your packing Something that feels as good as it looks will inevitably

  • The Carrier Bag Tax – Slammed by the Packaging Industry
    Carrier Bag Tax is making headlines yet again but this time it is not the Government and Environmental Groups making their voices heard but those representing the packaging industry instead The Carrier Bag Consortium CBC and the Packaging and Films Association PAFA have joined forces to launch their own vigorous response to the latest carrier bag campaign by Keep Britain Tidy and three other environmental groups and have written to both UK MPs and all major UK retailers urging them to consider the evidence The Break the Bag Habit campaign came to light after WRAP released its figures on the amount of carrier bags used in the UK in 2011 in a report that demonstrated a slight increase in overall carrier bag usage on the previous year The CBC and PAFA claim that the report hides very positive steps being taken by the industry and the public to reduce overall carbon impacts through additional re use more recycling of unwanted bags and the greater use of recycled plastic in bags being produced and that this new campaign is Yet another attempt to override science by repeating spin which flies in the face of Environment Agency evidence Basing their response on the SC030148 Environment Agency Life Cycle Analysis the trade associations representing carrier bag manufacturers and flexible packaging industry claim that the findings clearly demonstrates that alternatives to the lightweight plastic bag require far more of the earth s precious resources to produce and have far higher impacts across a life cycle and urge retailers to Stick to the voluntary code of practice It looks as those the carrier bag tax dispute is not going to be resolved anytime soon but it leaves us wondering is this tax simply generating funds to fill a hole in charity incomes or is it

  • How are Plastic Carrier Bags Made?
    bags soon became part of everyday life and while they were mainly used to transport groceries home from the local supermarket many of us found our packed lunches school PE kits and swimming costumes bagged up in a trusty carrier before we headed off to school Fast forward 40 years and we now find that our plastic carrier bags are having a detrimental impact on the environment and in the Governments attempt to reduce the amount we use we are being encouraged to return to our cloth bags and baskets now that s evolution For many of us a carrier bag is simply a useful item that helps us transport our purchases from one location to another but what many people do not know is how plastic carrier bags are made and what we should be looking out for as a consumer Plastic carrier bags are made from two major ingredients Petroleum and natural gas Through a variety of chemical processes these ingredients are separated and converted into polymers These polymers are then used to make ethylene which in turn forms molecular chains and these chains create the final product of Polythene a type of plastic Polythene comes in many different forms but HDPE high density polythene and LDPE low density polythene are the forms most commonly used to make plastic carrier bags The general rule is the higher the density the stronger the bag although both HDPE and LDPE carrier bags are flexible and waterproof HDPE carrier bags are listed as a number 2 recyclable plastic meaning they can be easily recycled into other goods LDPE carrier bags are listed as a number 4 and are therefore more difficult to recycle Many carrier bag manufacturers now mix additives into their carrier bags to help the polythene degrade under the

  • The Low-Down on Plastic Carrier Bags
    to Google the words plastic bags to find a whole barrage of stories against the humble carrier bag Why are Plastic Carrier Bags so bad Well it seems we are demanding far too many single use plastic carrier bags from our supermarkets each year and rather than disposing of them correctly at the landfill or recycle plant we are littering up the countryside and the sea and causing untold damage to wildlife and sea life What is the Government doing to reduce the amount of carrier bags in the UK In a bid to relieve pressure from environmental groups governments across the country are introducing a carrier bag tax or levy in the hope that it will encourage the public to reuse their shopping bags Carrier bags are already taxed in Wales plastic bags in Ireland will be taxed from 2013 and Scotland is consulting on the issue England has yet to follow suit Are Eco Carrier Bags better for the environment than Polythene Carrier Bags This is a popular question and one that seems to have several different answers Paper carrier bags made from sustainable sources are both recyclable and compostable and as such are considered kinder on the environment but a recent report released by the environmental agency suggests that plastic bags might not be eco villains after all The Life Cycle Assessment of Supermarket Carrier Bags found that polythene carrier bags may be greener than the alternatives and we would have to reuse our cotton carrier bags over 150 times before they could be considered more beneficial to the environment So are we soon to see the end of Cheap Carrier Bags in the UK Only time will tell The British Government is urging shopkeepers and retailers to do their bit and while we may face a
