Linda Dorfling, Woolworths

Printafoil is committed to working toward a cleaner environment. We are busy with multiple projects that are focused on minimising our carbon footprint and any potential damage to the environment. 

We look to balance business with environmental considerations by promoting sustainability in all aspects of package production, including energy use and generation, design, materials, methods and waste disposal.

Sustainability optimizes the value of packaging through every phase of its life cycle, from design to end use.

Through intelligent design, careful material selection, and best practices at the plant level,  Printafoil is able to minimize waste, reduce shipping costs and increase efficiencies – all of which support a sustainable use of resources and cultivate a positive emotional connection to the brand.

Compostable Film

Plants like corn, cassava, sugar cane or beets are used to transform greenhouse gases into sugars, which get fermented . The end result are pellets, used to create this PLA material.

       Strength

  • The product walls are 20-30% thinner than conventional plastics, whilst still achieving the same load strength. A significant reduction in the amount of material used.

       Compostable

  • 100% compostable

       Air Pollution

  • 50% less greenhouse gases are created when producing this PLA in comparison to the production of HIPS and GPPS

Cold Foiling

Laminated foil board poses many challenges in the recycling process and cannot be recycled or reclaimed, making cold foil the greener solution.

       Environmental Impact

  • Cold Foil has a much lower environmental impact than laminated foilboard. Laminted foilboard consists of a plastic layer, making it not possible to recycle.

       Recyclable

  • 100% recyclable
