Earlier this year, we shared that Aquapak has worked with one of its strategic partners, Maxim Packaging (a high end supplier to the apparel industry) to develop a range of bags which can be ordered in minimum order quantities (MOQ) of just 1000 bags from a dedicated website, http://e-maxonline.com/
Whilst initial stocks were held in Shanghai, China and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Maxim has put stock in place across its global network, including the UK.
The bags were launched in response to many specialist and boutique brands wanting to eliminate plastic pollution at source and follow Finisterre’s lead in reducing their impact on the environment.
Garment bags produced from Aquapak’s Hydropol™ polymer are an environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non-toxic, water-soluble, marine-safe alternative to the single use traditional non-recyclable plastic ‘polybags’, which are causing such an environmental issue.
The 30 micron clear, lay flat bags are initially available in three sizes to suit a range of garments such as shirts, sweaters and jeans, and have a fold-over closure flap and 2 x 7mm dia. vent holes. One side is printed to tell end users that it is a Zero Trace, Zero Waste bag, with multiple disposal options, with standard suffocation warnings displayed in multiple languages.
More information and samples can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling +44 (0)121 516 5656.
