Bag-in-Box: The Green Alternative

image20aBag-in-Box packaging offers a more environmentally friendly alternative to many standard packaging. The variety of bag-in-box products reduce environmental impact by thinking 'outside of the box' when it comes to packaging.

Waste Reduction:

  • Bag-in-box is fully recyclable.
  • Up to five times less waste than rigid containers.
  • Empty packages collapse fully, reducing space upon disposal.
  • Wide range of bulk sizes (up to 1.400 litres) means less packaging per litre.
  • One-way system - no chemical decontamination or washing of containers.
  • Bag-in-box packaging extends product shelf life, reducing product waste.
