earth2earth® is a brand of Thorn Environmental Ltd one of the largest and most innovative producers of refuse sacks, bin-liners and packaging films in Ireland.

Thorn Environmental Ltd concentrate on developing products that are sustainable and renewable and fit in with our desire to be part of the circular economy.

As leaders in innovation, we pride ourselves on being first to market with Biodegradable, water and heat resistant Compostable films, and now our new Bio-Based Carbon Captured 100% Recyclable products made from Sugar cane. These products are identical to fossil fuel-based plastic ones but are completely sustainable and renewable. Previously we were also first to market with sacks on rolls and multilayer films

We are committed to a solutions-based philosophy. Our current obsession is with excess CO2, and this has driven our desire to replace as many of our products as possible with Bio-based alternatives.

“We are proud of what we do; our company is part of what we are."
