100% recycled bin liners
A range of 100% recycled bin liners and refuse sacks, made by Alida, has been launched by the DIY chain Focus Do It All and will appear in other retail stores. The products have been endorsed by the "buy recycled" campaign of the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee and carry the campaign's logo. Alida is also offering an own-brand product to any large retailer which can then contain up to 40% of the retailer's own polyethylene waste. The company claims that its refuse sack requires more than 300% less energy to manufacture than an equivalent virgin product.
