A low carbon, plastic packaging solution for our auto bagging machine which also meets the UK Plastic Packaging Tax requirement of a minimum of 30% recycled content. The solution must align with QVC’s commitment to reduce their global carbon footprint.
QVC introduced an automated packing system in their fulfilment operations. We provided them with our specially manufactured auto bagging film, designed to be fully compatible with their automated packing machine. Additionally, we installed a baler to facilitate the collection of any waste generated during the automated packing process.
The waste collected from QVC is recycled back to granular form in a closed loop recycling system and utilised in the production of brand new QVC auto bagging film. Notably, QVC’s auto bagging film contains a minimum of 30% recycled material meeting the UK Plastic Packaging tax requirements.
By replacing virgin polyethylene with 30% recycled material, we significantly contributed to reducing QVC’s global carbon footprint. Recycled material inherently has a significantly lower carbon footprint. What’s more, our auto bagging film is recyclable within our closed loop recycling system, further reflecting QVC’s commitment to a circular economy.
By adopting our sustainable solutions, QVC is not only meeting regulatory requirements but also actively working towards a more environmentally responsible future.
“We have worked with Duo since 2015 and have always had a great relationship. We’re always keen to learn about any new initiatives Duo may be working on and willing to be part of any new ideas. We know we can go to Duo with an idea and will get an honest answer, not always necessarily the answer we want to hear, but it means we can trust Duo. We have a great working relationship with Duo.”
