Why switch to recycled content machine stretch film?

Since the introduction of the Plastic Packaging Tax in 2022 we have seen an influx in enquiries  about making the switch to recycled content packaging.

We have had discussions with businesses across the country, who all have a different stance on recycled content stretch film – some sticking with what they have, others optimising to reduce the amount of plastic they use, therefore minimising their tax liability, and others switching across to recycled content products.

Making the move to 30% recycled content stretch film

Lindum has worked with clients and other businesses to assist with making the switch over to recycled content pallet wrap. But why make the switch? Here we explain some of the reasons why businesses are making the shift to this eco-friendly stretch film.

Environmental impact
Using less virgin plastic in the production of stretch film reduces our reliance on fossil fuels. Virgin stretch films are made from the polymers found in crude oil and by replacing some of this with recycled material reduces our use of a nonrenewable resource.

To avoid the Plastic Packaging Tax
The tax is set at £200 per metric tonne of plastic packaging that does not contain a minimum of 30% recycled content. Making the switch over to recycled content stretch film removes your liability for tax.

We can talk you through all aspects of making the switch over to recycled content pallet wrap – whether you are looking at our nano machine recycled content stretch film or our hand application recycled content pallet wrap. Speak to our team today to find out all you need to know.
