Reducing Environmental Impact

Everyone wants and needs to reduce their environmental impact and to help you achieve that, we've compiled a selection of products that meet our 'Impact Reduction' criteria.

We are supporters of the 'Circular Economy', meaning we aim to provide fully recyclable packaging solutions where possible. This means that it is vitally important to dispose of materials in the correct manner, ensuring they can return to the supply chain, and not end up in land fill. 

The products below will significantly help reduce the environmental impact of your packaging solutions.

Taping & Sealing

Kraft Paper Tape

If you prefer to use a pressure sensitive tape, but want to stay green, then our kraft paper tapes are the answer. 

Biodegradable and recyclable, it can be disposed of still attached to your boxes. 

Available in natural kraft, blending well with brown corrugated boxes and is less susceptible to creasing than plastic tape, so presentation is excellent.

Supplied in widths ranging from 25mm to 75mm and with a 75mm cardboard core, making it compatible with pistol grip and bench mounted tape dispensers.

Water Activated Tape

Water activated tape is the ultimate eco-friendly case taping solution. Made from a natural kraft paper carrier and starch adhesive, it's 100% sustainable, 100% biodegradable and 100% recyclable without having to be segregated from cardboard.

It's the most effective way to securely seal a carton, giving the highest level of permanent adhesion, high burst strength and tamper-evidence. This gives water activated tapes an additional eco-advantage, as fewer damaged goods will result in fewer product returns (reducing carbon footprint) and fewer discarded products (reducing recycling costs or reducing additional landfill).

It's also proven to be more cost-effective than plastic pressure-sensitive tape in the order fulfillment sector, as less tape is needed for a satisfactory seal. Dispensed in pre-set or programmable lengths, it's also faster than using a hand tape dispenser. 

Our water activated tape is available in natural, snow white and oyster kraft, and with glass fibre reinforcement strands for enhanced burst resistance. Tape thicknesses ranges from 60gsm to 90gsm and 125gsm reinforced. Tape widths range from 24mm to 96mm.

 

Water activate tape is also available with pre-printed warning messages or with your own bespoke design, further improving the presentation of your packages. 

Pallet Wrapping

Nano Machine Stretch Films

Thinner film results in less plastic used per pallet, and our Nano stretch films are 100% recyclable, supporting the UK's circular economy goal of keeping all materials in the supply chain, with nothing going to landfill. 

Even the cardboard cores on our Nano films are lighter meaning less cardboard waste, and together with the extra meterage per roll, results in a significant reduction in your carbon emissions through transportation.
