As its name suggests, 'Paptic' is the name of a new material that shares some of the properties of both paper and plastic.
Paptic boasts the look and feel of paper, yet the durability and stretchable qualities of plastic. It's also incredibly lightweight, easy to print on and recyclable, making it ideal for a number of packaging solutions. This material has the potential to replace many retail shopping bags that are given out to customers. Earlier this year, Paptic bags were launched at Seppälä stores across Finland and The Body Shop is another retailer in the country that has expressed interest in integrating this unique new material into its operations.
As far as production goes, Paptic can be produced with existing infrastructure, meaning that no new buildings or equipment is required to make the eco-friendly material.
