The CircularBag is a large plastic bag with a capacity of 200 or 400 litres, for efficient collection of plastic flower foil, flower and plant sleeves and the shrink wrap around pallets and trolleys. A handy holder for keeping the bag open is also available. The full bags are returned to the Dutch flower auctions with your supplier, wholesaler or exporter via the existing distribution network, and are then recycled.
The CircularBag is a perfect, simple solution for all floriculture companies that unpack or repack flowers or process them into bouquets and find it important that their plastic waste is reused in an affordable and responsible way.
The CircularBag is all about recycling: thanks to the CircularBag we can make new, 100% recycled flower sleeves from used ones. Moreover, the CircularBag itself is also made of 90% recycled plastic. A simple and effective closed cycle, in other words.
The logistics for the CircularBag in brief:
This completes the recycling circle!
The CircularBag comes in two sizes:
The waste bag is perforated so you can easily compress the full bag so that it takes up less space.
Ask your flower and plant supplier about the CircularBag, or order them from Broekhof (directly or in the webshop). The bag holder can also be ordered online from Broekhof.
Please contact Broekhof for the prices of the 200 and 400-litre bags.
Please ask Broekhof about pricing. We recommend purchasing one holder per workstation. This is a one-off investment. The handy holder holds the bag open at working height and can be supplemented with wheels (also available from Broekhof).
The CircularBags are packaged in rolls: 200-litre bags on a roll of ten pieces and 400-litre bags on a roll of seven pieces. One box of CircularBags contains twelve rolls.
* Medium-sized flower sleeves.
This is an important question! The CircularBag costs you very little but offers great advantages:
The CircularBag is perfect for work stations in areas where packaged flowers are unpacked, repackaged or processed into bouquets, for example, at flower and plant wholesalers, flower processors, unpacking, repacking and export companies, bouquet makers and florists.
Place the CircularBag in its holder next to a work station. While processing the flowers, collect all flower foil, flower sleeves and stretch foil in the CircularBag. Thanks to the holes, the full bag can easily be compressed, so that it takes up little space. Return your full CircularBags, along with other packaging and trolleys, to your supplier, wholesaler or exporter.
You can hand over any full CircularBags along with other packaging and trolleys to your transporter every day, or hand them in to your exporter, wholesaler or supplier. This is free of charge!
We only collect soft foil and stretch foil in the CircularBag. We can recycle these foils to make new flower sleeves and CircularBags. Therefore, please take care to only deposit the following in the CircularBags:
All other plastic waste and residual waste cannot go in the waste bag. In other words, no:
For your convenience: yes! The holder holds the CircularBag neatly open at working height. This allows you and your employees to quickly and effortlessly fill the bag with flower sleeves and stretch film. The holder fits any work station, takes up little space and can be supplemented with wheels for even more convenience.
The CircularBag is an initiative of the Circular Plastics team, which is made up of recycling company Kras, flower processor Fresco Flowers and packaging supplier Broekhof. Together, they developed a new, innovative and sustainable packaging solution to make a positive contribution to the environment with the entire flower sector.
Worldwide reuse of plastic in the floriculture sector! Our aim is a simple, global recycling system for plastic flower sleeves and stretch foils. Thanks to the CircularBag, everyone can now collect their plastic waste quickly, easily and affordably, after which we have it recycled into new, 100% recycled flower sleeves. In this way, we can all contribute to a circular economy within the flower sector, with full reuse of residuals.
The last word on the most sustainable packaging material has not yet been spoken. In our opinion: plastic is a better choice than paper, for example, as long as plastic waste is actually recycled and does not end up in nature or the ocean. Flower and plant sleeves are made from traditional plastics such as PE, PP, CPP, OPP and BOPP, an ideal material for effectively packaging and transporting flowers and plants. These plastics are easy to collect and recycle indefinitely and can be processed into new, sustainable end products.
