How To Go Plastic Free With Your Packaging

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), General Promotions, Office, Office, UK, Uncategorized

With every piece of plastic ever made still existing in some form, it's no wonder that more and more people and businesses are trying to eliminate unnecessary plastic as a starter, and eventually eradicate single-use plastic altogether. We can't all do everything, but we can all do something, so we've compiled our very best advice for how you can embrace eco, refuse single-use, and make your plastic free pledge – take a look at six of our top packaging picks:

PAPER MAILING BAGS

Out with the poly, in with the paper. If you're used to sending pre-packaged goods or non-fragile items in polythene mailers, why not swap to a paper alternative? Delivering on all of the same benefits of poly mailers but without the eco guilt, paper mailing bags are also recyclable and biodegradable unlike their plastic equivalents. With 79% of all plastic ending in either landfills or the natural world, making this simple packaging swap for your despatches would dramatically reduce the impact your business has on the environment.

Paper Mailing Bags

CARDBOARD BOXES

Cardboard Boxes are a true packaging classic; one of, if not the most, common form of packaging there is. A simple, low-cost solution which works for practically every business, is plastic free, and widely recognised by people everywhere to be easily recyclable. Cardboard as a material is incredibly versatile; not only recyclable, but biodegradable too, you or your customer can reuse cardboard boxes time and time again, and they're even made from 75% recycled materials.

ColomPac Return Boxes

PAPER TAPE

Don't ruin your plastic free cardboard boxes by sticking a non-recyclable plastic packing tape to it – go for a paper adhesive instead! Paper tape is an easy eco-friendly swap which can easily be recycled and biodegraded in one go along you’re your cardboard packaging. Even stronger than regular packing tape, far more secure, and way more planet friendly, paper tape is a super simple, great value swap which delivers the best quality time and time again.

Paper Tapes

CARDBOARD ENVELOPES

If you need reliable, reinforced protection for your items and you find yourself typically reaching for classic plastic bubble wrap lined padded envelopes, give cardboard envelopes a go. Made from extra strength corrugated cardboard to provide the very best protection, these robust envelopes are plastic free, recyclable, biodegradable, and made from FSC approved sources – an exceptionally eco-friendly and high-quality product which we guarantee won't compromise on the protective perks of plastic packaging and will be an excellent sustainable swap for your business and your customers.

ColomPac Cardboard Envelopes

JIFFY GREEN

Another alternative to using Bubble Lined Bags or wrapping products in bubble wrap before going in their outer packaging, are the mighty Jiffy Green padded bags. Swapping the plastic bubble wrap interior for a fully recycled paper fibre lining, Jiffy Green bags deliver the same, if not better, level of protection compared to standard padded envelopes, are not only simple to recycle, but biodegradable and even compostable too. A smart swap which not only eliminates your business' plastic consumption, but actually enhances the environment too.
