Polyethylene is a preferred plastic that is used throughout the food packaging industry for its purity and non-toxic properties.
It has a very simple molecular structure that does not require chemical additives (as opposed to vinyl/PVC and polyurethane). Its use is
recommended by environmental groups all over the world.
