Duo UK client, pure play Retailer Pink Boutique becomes first in sector to use renewable Mailing Bags

Pink Boutique are the first pure play retailer to invest in GreenPE sugarcane plastic mailing bags in a bid to help decouple their packaging from finite fossil and reduce CO2 emissions.

The rapidly expanding company sends out thousands of orders placed on their website to customers in UK, Europe and beyond on a daily basis in branded polythene mailing bags. Keen to source a sustainable solution, Pink Boutique have made the switch to Duo's GreenPE mailing bags which are chemically identical to regular polythene mailing bags and can be recycled in the exact same way however, they are made from a renewable source sugarcane. As the sugarcane grows it captures and stores CO2 from the atmosphere.

Anthony Brimelow, Commercial Director at Duo UK, said "The use of GreenPE avoids the need for plastic produced from finite fossil fuels which, as we know is a limited source. Plus, as the sugarcane grows it captures and stores CO2 from the atmosphere, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"This new material has the potential to have a significantly positive effect on the packaging industry from both a sustainability and a CO2 emissions perspective."

Speaking of this switch, Alice Hall owner of Pink Boutique said "Having seen the positive environmental impact that the 5p charge for single-use carrier bags has had on the high-street, we were keen to find a mailbag provider that would help us with our goal of using resources sustainably.  

"We are extremely proud to be working with Duo to become the first pure play fashion retailer to offer our customers a mailing bag made from a renewable source. We hope that other companies quickly follow suit as we come together to tackle this fundamental issue."

Pink Boutique will introduce the new mailing bags in June, coinciding with a refresh of the bag's current design in keeping with the brand's glamorous look.
