Wrapping which is 100% biodegradable in as little as 60 days has been introduced by MDF profiling specialists, the W Howard Group

The building materials industry urgently needs to find new, greener ways of working to minimise its impact on the environment,” says Group Commercial Director Simon Fleet. 

We know how important it is to our merchant customers that they work with sustainable companies who take their corporate social responsibility seriously, and we’ve been working hard to ensure we can improve our packaging without compromising the safety or security of our products,” 

The move will remove around 16 tonnes of non-biodegradable plastic from landfill and improve the company’s carbon footprint. It is estimated that around 40% of all plastics used in the UK are used in packaging.
