A Landmark Year

The London 2012 Olympics brought our nation together and created a legacy that would not only change London, but influence future events around the globe.

London Bio Packaging had a crucial part to play in delivering LOCOG’s vision for a zero-waste Olympic Games. We designed, developed and supplied all the compostable and recyclable packaging! The packaging was then recycled or composted. 100% of waste was diverted from landfill – a world first for an event of this scale.

We are so proud to have been part of “the most sustainable Olympics and Paralympics of the modern era”. Please see our video on the project.

Some Olympic Stats:

  • 120,000,000 pieces of packaging supplied.
  • 100% of waste diverted from landfill
  • 2,908 tonnes of waste recycled
  • 1,706 tonnes of waste composted

New Product Design and Development:

We aim to be at the forefront of new product design and development. Our aim is to provide you with sustainable, high quality and affordable packaging. Some of the new product developments in 2012 include:
