July 3, 2023 (press release) –

JULY is Plastic Free July® and Sirane can offer a range of sustainable plastic-free packaging solutions for anyone looking to move to plastic-free.

Plastic Free July® is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. It is organised by the Australia-based Plastic Free Foundation and has been running every year since 2011.

Sirane has a range of plastic-free packaging solutions which can make a real difference – including pouches/flow-wrap films, and coated boards.

Our Earthfilm is an award-winning paper-based barrier film, which is heat-sealable and recyclable in the paper recycling stream. It is also plastic-free.

Peter Ralten, commercial & business development director, said: “For anyone looking to go plastic-free with their packaging, Earthfilm is a good place to start. It’s a heat-sealable & recyclable paper, with amazing barriers available, which we can also supply as a pre-formed stand-up pouch.

“We also supply Earthfilm as a quad-seal pouch, and recent additions to the range include Earthpouch Duo – a plastic-free stand-up pouch with a window – and Earthpouch Supreme, an ovenable flat pouch.”

We also have our twisted-handle paper-grab bags – a sustainable shopping bag, plastic-free, which is not only recyclable but also great for branding.

Our board division also offers a range of plastic-free packaging solutions.

These include recyclable salmon boards, cake boards and cake drums.

Ross Griffin, director of board products, said: “We’ve developed a plastic-free alternative to commonly used boards, which traditionally have been either plastic or foil backed, and difficult to recycle (if at all).

“Our boards are coated with a sustainable barrier coating, which gives it all the grease/moisture resistance required – and the boards are recyclable.

“We recently added cake-drums – available up to 600 micron thick.

“Earthboard can be supplied either in a range of colours – including silver and gold – or custom printed, offering amazing branding potential.”

We also offer plastic-free sandwich skillets – our Earthwedge – which combine the expertise of both our flexibles and board division. Available as a tabbed product, ideal for anyone filling and selling sandwiches same day.

Sirane also offers plastic-free tree-shelters – our Earthboard tree-shelters are made from a naturally water-resistant board with additional protective coatings and are designed to last out in the field for many years.

Ultimately, however, they will eventually break down and return to the soil – removing the time-consuming job of collecting them all in.

Ross Griffin added: “Plastic is everywhere – and that includes the forests. It doesn’t need to be, there are solutions out there.  Our tree-shelters are plastic-free and are made from board – trees protecting trees.”
