WFS ditches plastic in landfill


Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) says it has reduced the amount of plastic languishing in landfill by 616,885kg -the equivalent of 68 million disposable water bottles – in just 12 months after converting to using biodegradable stretch wrap for cargo shipments.

Regular plastic can take 1,000 years to biodegrade in a landfill. However, the BioNatur biodegradable plastics it is using will disappear from landfill in only 5-10 , it says.

WFS converted the majority of the plastic used in its North America cargo handling business over to the BioNatur products launched by M&G Packaging. BioNatur Plastic i products are manufactured with a small amount of organic, food-safe additive that allows anaerobic bacteria to digest the plastic in landfill. Outside landfill it has an indefinite shelf life and performs exactly like traditional plastic products.
