All our Double Green® products contain recycled content in excess of the mandatory 30% and are 100% recyclable in existing Australian kerbside recycling streams. These are the foundations of a circular economy.
However, as a precaution, there is also the option of using a biodegradable additive which encourages plastic to degrade through a series of chemical reactions should the product end up in a microbial rich landfill environment.
Double Green® biodegradable* products have been shown to biodegrade 24% in 216 days under conditions that simulate a wetter biological active landfill using ASTM D5511 standard test. Note that the stated rate of degradation does not mean the product will continue to decompose.
Testing continues on all Double Green® products and material to track the rate of biodegradability*.

We at Recyclable Packaging are signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant and embrace the goal to ‘reduce environmental degradation arising from the disposal of used packaging and conserve virgin materials through the encouragement of re-use and recycling of used packaging materials’.
We are committed to and working towards the following National Packaging Targets:-
As manufacturers of plastic packaging this affects us in two ways, both in better managing our business to business packaging and in working with our customers to increase the sustainability of their packaging so together we are responsible corporate and environmental citizens working towards a sustainable future.
Please refer to our attached first APCO Annual Report and Action Plan Performance Summary for information on our progress in the first year.
