BPI recycled products donates plastic sacks to Cumbrian flood victims.

BPI Recycled Products has teamed up with a cleaning and supplies firm to donate 43,000 recycled plastic sacks to the victims of the recent flooding in Carlisle.

BPI Recycled Products has teamed up with a cleaning and supplies firm to donate 43,000 recycled plastic sacks to the victims of the recent flooding in Carlisle.

The Derbyshire-based company produces the sacks from 100 percent UK-sourced recycled material, much of which comes from Cum brian farm waste.

"Cumbria farmers collect more farm waste for BPI Recycled Products than any other county. We have a very good relationship with the region and so it is only right that we show our support," explained Lorcan Mekitarian, Commercial Director, BPI Recycled Products.

"The clean- up is not a nice job and if we can make it a little easier for homeowners by supplying heavy duty sacks, to not only throw damaged items away in but also to help keep their possessions dry over the next few months, then that is the least we can do."

The bags supplied via distributor, Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene Supplies, are from BPI's Green Sack range, which boasts an ultra-low carbon footprint and, importantly for the flood victims, is said to be ultra tear resistant.

Thanks to the use of tough farm polythene, the Green Sack range offers up to 10 times the tear resistance of other premium brand refuse sacks, says BPI. The strength comes from the UK farm waste polythene used in silage bale wrap and horticultural film which BPI Recycled Products chases for its strength.
