Returnity Innovations, designers of reusable packaging products, plans to use an antimicrobial solvent in its packaging product in an effort to address COVID-19 concerns.

The company will use ViralOff antimicrobial solvent from Polygiene. According to the company, the initiative is a first for the packaging industry, directly addressing recent concerns linked to COVID-19 that have reversed progress in the fight against plastic pollution. According to Returnity, plastic use has surged during the pandemic. The antimicrobial solution is effective for up to 30 washes, according to Polygiene.

“What we do at Returnity is build out these reusable solutions and empower the broader systems necessary for companies to shift to the circular economy. By partnering with Polygiene, we are now able to create something that better addresses consumer needs in our world today,” said Mike Newman, CEO of Returnity Innovations. “By creating this system that prioritizes safety with antimicrobial coating for our packaging, we are providing a legitimate reusable option that the consumer can feel good about – from both a safety standpoint and an environmental one.”

Polygiene treats materials to keep garments, footwear, gear and textiles fresh and lasting longer. The ViralOff antimicrobial solvent inhibits bacterial growth. 

“Anti-viral treatments have been a game-changer while navigating the pandemic,” said Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene. “We believe that these treatments will become the new standard for reusables in the future.”
