Steelflex Bio: A Biodegradable Stretch Film For A Greener Future


If there is one thing that we are hearing more and more of as time goes on, it's that the list of fortune 500 companies looking to invest in a sustainable future is growing.


However, it's not only large corporations that are looking for ways to diversify their sustainability via switching to green packaging. Small to medium-sized businesses are also trying to get green.


But what are the ways in which a company can actually become more sustainable? While there are various ways to do this, one easy way to become more earth-friendly is by using biodegradable stretch film instead of traditional plastic film.


And while there are other bio-based stretch films on the market today, in laboratory tests, Steelflex Bio only took two years and three months to biodegrade!


That is quite impressive in and of itself. Still, there are many other benefits of using Steelflex Bio stretch film to secure your palleted products.
