New environmentally friendly packaging for Swiss chocolates

Along with the innovative Plantic Technologies Ltd., UK’s Marks & Spencers has introduced environmental friendly packaging for Swiss chocolates. The Plantic® trays within the box are: Biodegradable after use Home compostable and compostable to European standards (EN13432) Made from renewable and sustainable resources (non-GM corn starch) that are non-toxic to the environment. The Plantic® tray was recently accredited with the AIB-VINCOTTE ‘OK Biodegradable Soil’ conformity mark; it is certified safe for disposal in soil In January 2007, Marks and Spencer launched "Plan A", a £200mln "eco plan" which impacts every part of Marks and Spencer’s operations over the next five years. The plan maintains that by 2012, Marks and Spencer aims to become carbon neutral; send no waste to landfill from its own operations; extend sustainable sourcing; set new standards in ethical trading; and help customers and employees live a healthier lifestyle. Plantic® is produced as extruded sheet or as resin granules and sold to a wide range of materials and packaging companies throughout the world. Using industry standard equipment, Plantic® materials can be thermoformed, injection molded and used for film extrusion and blow molding. They can also be formulated to work in conjunction with conventional plastics which is indicative that the potential for the technology is limitless.
