Introducing the latest sustainable packaging update for BG Electrical products
BG Electrical has recently introduced new sustainable packaging for its core range of products, using recyclable PET plastics and 80% recyclable cardboard.
Fittings, such as screws, are now also supplied in fully bio-degradable Rice Paper packaging
Packaging plays many vital roles within an organisation, such as protecting the product during the shipping process, ensuring our customers receive their products in pristine condition.
We recognise the crucial part we can play as a business, in helping to reduce waste and emissions; and are continually looking at ways we can further improve every aspect of our business operation and play our part in achieving a far lesser impact on our environment.
We have redeveloped our product packaging, sourcing materials and technology that help reduce our overall environmental impact, using materials that can be effectively recycled and used again.
Our new packaging is made from PET plastic, meaning it is fully recyclable, additionally any cardboard used for our products is 80% recyclable.

So what is PET ?
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a polymer material with many characteristics that make it suitable for product packaging. PET is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. It is clear, durable, chemically inert, eco-friendly, and lightweight, which allows for the manufacture of containers that are strong and safe.
PET is highly recyclable. It can be recycled over and over without losing its properties.
