One UK company outside Birmingham is making a revolutionary new plastic that can hopefully have a massive positive impact on the bloated packaging industry. They are called Aquapak Polymers, their new material is ocean friendly, and scalable. We are very pleased to be working with them to get their story out into the world in the most effective way possible.
