Polyethylene is a preferred plastic that is used
throughout the food packaging industry for its purity and non-toxic
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.
