Yesterday we saw the 51st Earth Day event, an annual event coordinated around the world by EarthDay.org to show support for protecting the environment.
As a packaging company, we are extremely conscious of the ways in which our products effect the environment and the world around us, so we thought that this week would be the perfect opportunity to show our favourite plastic-free packaging products;
Paper Bubble Wrap
Our paper bubble wrap is made using 100% recycled fibres, and is itself 100% recyclable, providing an environmentally friendly alternative to bubble wrap which is also fully compostable when broken down. This paper features an embossed bubble pattern to protect goods in transit, and can be widely used for cushion protection of potteries, glass and other delicate items.
Kraft Paper Tape
Kraft paper is a high quality, easy-tear carrier that is fully recyclable and, when combined with a hot melt adhesive, is also completely biodegradable, making it a great alternative to traditional packing tapes. Our Vibac 291 Paper Tape has a natural rubber solvent adhesive for a longer-lasting hold, whilst our Hotmelt Kraft Paper Tape uses a biodegradable hot melt adhesive.
Paper Void Fill
Our EcoFill Paper Void Fill Box is a fully recyclable paper cushioning solution which is an excellent environmentally friendly alternative to loose fill chips. It is the perfect solution for plastic-free and uncomplicated packaging, and each handy box contains 450m of paper roll, providing the equivalent to over 1.5 cubic metres of void fill or 3 bags of loose fill chips. Our EcoFill Void FIll Boxes are also made using 100% recycled paper, and is entirely coreless, allowing for a smaller roll diameter which is better for warehouse space and storage.
Paper Mailing Bags
Our kraft paper mailing bags are made using a strong 95gsm kraft paper for an environmentally conscious alternative to traditional polythene mailing bags.All of our paper mailing bags are fully recyclable, compostable, and made with sustainably sourced materials. Much like traditional mailing bags, these bags utilise a pilfer-evident perforated opening with a glue strip seal for an efficient, secure, and permanent closure.
Kraft Edge Board
Our Kraft Edge Board is useful for reinforcing, stabilising, and protecting, the edges of pallet loads from impacts during transport and from damage by strapping. The stability of these Kraft Edge Boards help to avoid tipping and displacement of palletized goods and helps to enhance loads stability and void stability to ensure uniform palletisation. This edge protection is PVA bonded with a Kraft wrapping which is both recyclable and biodegradable.
