Eco-Friendly Bubble Wrap Alternative
Environmentally friendly cushioning and void fill
Innovations in eco-friendly packaging materials have produced a paper alternative to bubble wrap and foam packing peanuts. The new material is not new but repurposed Kraft paper which performs just as well at cushioning as bubble wrap and it can be recycled into household waste streams or it biodegrades in the home composter. Another win for the environment is that this paper product is often made from recycled paper pulp and manufactured using SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) standards.
The paper alternative
The product is die-cut Kraft paper that comes flat in rolls but when extended out from the roll and wrapped around objects it expands into a three-dimensional hexagonal mesh. The air pockets trapped in the mesh provide exceptional cushioning and the hexagonal papercuts interlock with each other, eliminating the need for tape to seal the wrapping material. This interlocking property stops the material from unravelling and absorbs shock during the transport of your goods. Not only is it perfect at moulding around fragile objects and protecting them during transit, but it can also be used to line cartons and mailbags or make a nest for objects to sit in.
This sustainable bubble wrap alternative comes in compact rolls and takes up to 80% less space to store in the mailroom. Depending on which brand you buy it either comes in a neat dispenser box or you can buy a benchtop roll dispenser.
There is no requirement to use a box cutter or scissors to get the desired length. When a product is wrapped sufficiently the wrapping material is easy to tear from the roll. With less folding and taping needed you and your staff will be able to pack at a higher speed and complete the task more efficiently. You will need less space in a carton so you can reduce your costs by shipping in smaller boxes and satchels.
This wonderful innovation in eco-friendly packaging is set to help reduce plastic packaging materials going to landfill and escaping into the environment. You will no longer need to store messy packing peanuts or bulky plastic bubble wrap and your valuable storage space will be freed up.
Not only will your wrapped goods have a better aesthetic presentation your customers will also be grateful they can be part of the eco-friendly packaging solution. Customers will display brand loyalty to you and your products.
