So you’ve got a recycling routine that works for you. You know it like the back of your hand and there’s not one empty plastic bottle or can in sight in the kitchen that isn’t waiting to be collected for recycling. The job is done! But is it really?


Europe’s leading fresh food packaging manufacturer, LINPAC, has commented on the recent turbulence in its raw material supply chain and concluded that its rigid and flexible packaging prices will have to increase in the face of current sharp cost increases.

Plastic bottles

San Francisco is banning single use plastic water bottles on its city property. During the next four years, the ban will phase out the sale and distribution of plastic water bottles holding 21 ounces or less within the city.

The latest data we can find is that 50 billion single serve bottles of water were used by Americans in 2007 – with a recycling rate of only 23% therefore over 38 billion bottles end up in landfill.  According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, in 2010, the U.S alone also generated 31 million tons of plastic waste.

European multi-material packaging manufacturer LINPAC is extending one of its product ranges, LINdis® R, increasing both the colour and size range available, just in time for the summer season.

Multi-material packaging manufacturer LINPAC Packaging Limited continues to act with a high level of professionalism, according to a survey, conducted by the Institute of Customer Service.

We’ve compiled a list of dos and don’ts to ensure a barbecue goes without a hiccup.
