PlasticFreeLand™ Debuts at Packaging Innovations London 2019

Plastic alternatives on display


The brand-new feature has been created by A Plastic Planet, and will make its debut appearance at Packaging Innovations & Luxury Packaging London at the Olympia. Following the Plastic free Aisle which appeared at the show last year, A Plastic Planet has gone even further by creating PlasticFreeLand™, an entire area of the show dedicated to showcasing the latest developments in plastic free materials and packaging. Featuring eight exhibitors, the area has been curated to enable visitors to discover the possibilities of biomaterials and experience them first-hand. The structure of the area, which will be built using Cygnus Ecoboard, will also be plastic free.

One of the exhibitors within a PlasticFreeLand™ will be TIPA, which will demonstrate the capabilities of its fully compostable flexible packaging. The bio-based concept offers similar mechanical and visual properties associated with conventional, flexible plastic options, including transparency, sealing strength, durability, barrier capabilities and shelf life, but is fully compostable within six months.

Reel Brands will showcase its range of cardboard based solutions for traditionally non-recyclable goods, including the REELtray; a water and grease resistant pop-up cardboard box.

Committed to carbon neutral manufacturing, AB Packaging will display its range of paper bags for use in the retail and fashion, grocery, food-to-go, e-commerce and industrial sectors. The paper used is sourced from responsibly managed forests and its bags carry the Full Circle symbol, demonstrating they have the highest environmental credentials.

Offering adaptable solutions for a range of applications, Flexi-Hex will join the PlasticFreeLand™ to demonstrate its innovative cardboard designs for bottles, board sports and industrial uses. The innovation features a durable, honeycomb design which provides flexibility to allow the packaging to fit irregular shapes and sizes. The open-ended modular sleeves are easily cut to the required size or fixed at the join point to encompass oversized products.  

Developer of natural plastics, Biome Bioplastics, will showcase its range of bio-resin based packaging including the HT range which can withstand temperatures up to 1300c.

Control Union, the international certification body, will also be present as their partnership with A Plastic Planet launches in September. CU will be collaborating on the further rollout of A Plastic Planet’s Plastic Free Trust Mark for packaging and materials.
