Environmentally Friendly Packaging for Protecting Products

Eco-friendly packaging has become a rapidly growing trend, as many businesses are looking to reduce their environmental impact and are therefore becoming more conscious of their packaging waste and looking at ways to streamline their packaging requirements through the use of biodegradable, compostable or recyclable materials.

29th October 2021

This is made even more crucial by the introduction of the UK Government’s new Plastic Packaging Tax bill coming into force in April 2022, which will provide an economic incentive for businesses to use recycled material in the production of plastic packaging. In addition, it is estimated that as a result of the tax the use of recycled plastic in packaging could increase by around an estimated 40%.

As the demand for eco-friendly packaging solutions continues to surge, we can offer an extensive range of innovative protective solutions which are consistent with emerging environmental requirements. Many of our protective packaging solutions are made from biodegradable, compostable or recyclable materials, to support our customers in meeting their environmental goals, avoid the additional costs posed by the new packaging tax and improve the company’s reputation as a sustainable business.

When sourcing packaging to protect your products during transit and storage,​ it is also crucial to consider the size and shape of the product,​ the materials required to prevent damage​ and the requirements and expectations of the recipient.

From our innovative Cushioning and Protection products, which are designed to safely hold your product in the centre of your shipping container, to our Inflatable Suspension and Retention solutions, we can provide the perfect protection option for your business. For example, our range of recyclable and compostable Moulded Pulp Paint Tin Fitments, Pulpsafe Transit Packs, Pacplan® Paperwave® Pillow Films and Pacplan® Compostable® Pillow Films provide an ideal solution for protecting your products during transit and storage.

Our Green Light Air Cushioning and Green Light Loose Fill are 100% biodegradable and reusable, offering high level shock and impact protection.
