Worldwide Flight Services has become the first major air cargo industry company to begin converting the majority of plastic products used in its cargo handling operations over to the BioNatur Plastics line of sustainable products manufactured by M&G Packaging.

BioNatur Plastic is a growing line of biodegradable plastic products manufactured with proprietary formulations that make them the most sustainable plastic options available and investing in the new products is part of WFS’ global sustainability programme.

“Worldwide Flight Services is excited to be the first major customer of these environmentally-friendly products in the air cargo industry,” commented Mike Simpson, WFS’ Executive Vice President for the Americas. “WFS uses the equivalent of more than 27m plastic water bottles a year in protective plastic sheeting and wrap so with this commitment we can make a significant contribution to the environment. We are thrilled to finally have a product that ensures this plastic will not languish in a landfill for decades.”

BioNatur Plastic is manufactured with a blend of resins including traditional LDPE and a proprietary, natural, plant-based biopolymer. The resulting blends are biodegradable in a landfill environment and significantly reduce fossil fuel-based plastic usage and greenhouse gas generation.
