At Hive our design team are buzzing with creativity.
The Hive recipe includes just some of the ingredients we use to create our fantastic products.
We realise you are all busy bees & after a long, hard day you just want to cosy up in bed feeling snug & warm. We hope you enjoy our quality bedding & it helps you to sleep easy.
Packaging is the first thing you see, and that’s why we take it as seriously as our product.
Therefore our packaging is 100% recyclable & biodegradable.
Green PE is CO2 negative, 100% renewable, 100% recyclable and 100% sustainable.
We work with Duo.Green to produce our shipping bags. Duo.Green is the first, and only, UK manufacturer of mailing bags made entirely from Green PE – a bio based thermoplastic resin that comes from sugarcane ethanol.
Green PE is made from sugar cane, and it’s the process of photosynthesis as the plant grows that makes this product carbon positive. As sugar cane plant grows it captures and fixes CO2 from the atmosphere during its production and reduce greenhouse gas emission.
Green PE is as an alternative to regular fossil based polythene, offering your company the opportunity to improve your green credentials by using a material that is 100 percent renewable, 100 percent recyclable and 100 percent sustainable without compromising on performance.
Environmental benefits of GreenPE
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions – each ton of GreenPE Polyethylene produced captures and sequesters CO2 from the atmosphere, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Renewable resource – GreenPE is produced from Brazilian sugarcane ethanol, a renewable source. Braskem’s ethanol suppliers must meet the principles of sustainable development present in the “Code of Conduct for Ethanol Suppliers.” Brazilian ethanol has characteristics that confer advantage when compared to other options of renewable raw materials.
Recyclable – GreenPE is recyclable in the same chain used for recycling traditional polyethylene from fossil source. GreenPE is not biodegradable, so the CO2 captured by the product remains fixed throughout the life cycle of the plastic.
Performance – GreenPE has the same technical properties, appearance and versatility of applications of polyethylene from fossil source. The replacement of fossil source polyethylene for GreenPE does not require investment in new machines in plastics converters.
