Environmental sustainability

Virosac bio products

Since 1991 we have specialized in manufacturing our biodegradable and compostable line. We currently manufacture more than 50 products which have allowed us to meet customer requirements in both technical and practical terms.

The most important ones are:
Biopratico with handles – it was Italy’s top-selling branded product line in 2016 (Nielsen data); Biolaccio – line with patented drawstring tie; Bio Maxi format and Bio Catering for professional requirements and the latest creation ProXsac Bio – with its practical, functional shopper form which guarantees easy closure and transport.

Novamont

We’re proud to mention our long-standing collaboration with Novamont and are registered user no.1 of the Novara-based chemical company’s Mater-Bi trademark license.
Mater-Bi is an innovative range of bioplastics which use plant components like corn starch and biodegradable polymers, derived from both renewable and synthetic raw materials.
Mater-Bi was developed by Novamont and is a highly innovative material that resents a real solution to current, strongly impacting problems, such as managing organic waste. The plant component of Mater-Bi allows industrial companies to offer mass consumption products with low environmental impact, reducing greenhouse gas emission and consumption of energy and non-renewable resources.

Legambiente

We have supported the environmental protection projects of Italy’s largest environmental agency, Legambiente, for years. We support important projects like the “Ridurre si può” and “Disimballiamoci” campaigns to reduce unnecessary packaging and the “Spiagge e fondali puliti” beach cleaning volunteering day at the sea, to clear abandoned waste from our beaches and sea beds.
Since 2011 we’ve been on board with the “Treno Verde” environmental project, another information and awareness campaign by Legambiente focussed on energy, urban quality of life and sustainable living in our homes.

Our local area

Companies are not outsiders in their local area; they are responsible for contributing to the development of that area. That’s why we sponsor local sporting events and activities and collaborate with two Social Co-operatives: L’Incontro and La Vallorgana.
