Packaging for Letter Boxes

As consumer lives get busier, convenience becomes a higher priority. A large aspect of this convenience is based on the delivery, as shown by the rise in Next Day and Same Day services. However, another aspect of this delivery convenience lies in the receipt of the parcel. After all, why pay extra to receive a parcel Next Day, when you have to then reorganise a delivery if you miss it or have to wait in all day to receive it. With this in mind, it is no surprise that letterbox deliveries are becoming increasingly popular. Letterbox mailings are a great way of increasing the convenience of your mailings, whilst also improving the customer experience.

What is Biodegradable Packaging?

Over recent years, a great amount of focus has been placed on our environment. As members of the public, we are bombarded with a series of mixed messages, which has led to a large amount of confusion with regards to what is ‘good’, what is ‘bad’, and what we should do. One of the factors to this confusion is the mis-labelling and misunderstanding of certain terms, such as compostable, recyclable, biodegradable (and oxo-biodegradable, photo-degradable and hydro-biodegradable), sustainable, and environmentally friendly. Here at ukpackaging, we want to try and shed some light on what these all mean in terms of packaging, starting with biodegradable.

This tackles the issues of over-packaging, difficult to open packaging, and the environmental impact of packaging.
