Sugarcane packaging

Sugarcane has been used for the first time in packaging by Bulldog skincare. The green polyethylene is created by farming sugarcane on sustainable land in Brazil, thousands of miles from the Amazon rainforest. Whilst being cultivated, the sugarcane captures CO2 from the air as it grows. Sugarcane is so efficient at capturing CO2 that every kilogram of green plastic produced 3.09 kilograms of CO2 is removed from the air. Once grown the sugarcane is transformed into 'ethanol' a type of alcohol, which in turn is used to Bulldog's partner Braskem to create green plastic. Kudos Bulldog.
