Which Retailers Are Best For Recyclable Christmas Wrapping Paper?

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Uncategorized, Awin, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

Christmas is just around the corner and the most wonderful time of year can also be one of the most wasteful. With an estimated 50,000 trees needed to make the over 100 million rolls of wrapping paper[1] used over the festive period in the UK alone, your choice of wrapping paper should be about more than what co-ordinates with the baubles on your tree and instead the focus should be on how environmentally friendly it is and whether it can be recycled or not.

With a nation of more sustainable savvy shoppers, recyclable Christmas wrapping paper is widely available this year from a whole host of retailers – but who comes out on top? We’ve compared the most popular festive wrap sellers to see who’s going to be Christmas number one in the eco wrapping paper charts:

B&M

B&M are famous for their bargains, and their Christmas wrapping paper is certainly no exception here. At just £1 for 12 metres of wrapping paper, it’s certainly the cheapest we’ve seen. However, the real cost comes at the expense of the planet as none of the low-cost wrap can be recycled. When we asked B&M why, they explained it was due to the combination of materials used and advised that availability of recyclable wrapping paper options is something they’re looking to improve on.

Paperchase

A stationery supplier who are, in their own words, ‘keen to be green’ it may come as a surprise that only just over half of their Christmas wrapping paper can be recycled. Shiny foil wrapping paper is Paperchase’s downfall and unfortunately makes up a not insignificant amount of their range. It is a shame that a retailer with sustainability supposedly so high on their agenda needs to stock so many different types of unrecyclable foil wrapping paper when alternatives are easily available. Even more so that the foil options are mainly aimed at children – and even the most angelic of children are really only interested in what’s underneath the paper.

WH Smith

As usual, WH Smith have a huge range of Christmas wrapping paper this year with almost 60 different patterns available. 60% of the wrapping papers are recyclable which does raise the question why stock more than the 35 recyclable papers as that number still offers a comprehensive range to shoppers. WH Smith are also stocking wrapping paper which is decorated with biodegradable glitter which is a great swap – however these papers aren’t recyclable. So close yet so far!

Next

Next have been silently making moves with their sustainability journey and have already achieved a 50% reduction in their carbon emissions and diverted 97% of waste from landfill, so our expectations were high when it came to the eco credentials of their wrapping paper. Almost 80% of Next’s wrapping paper is recyclable this year, with their foil-based luxury wraps letting them down. Whilst wanting a premium looking and feeling wrapping paper is understandable, it shouldn’t come at a cost to the planet as even just a thicker paper can translate the luxury look and feel without contaminating the paper with unnecessary extra unrecyclable materials.

John Lewis

For many of us, watching the John Lewis Christmas advert marks the start of the holiday season, it’s safe to say we expected them to take the festive period seriously – and we weren’t disappointed. With their sister brand Waitrose leading the way with eco-friendly package free food shopping, they clearly understand their responsibility to influence consumer behaviour for the better, and as such, John Lewis and Waitrose have ensured all of their Christmas wrapping paper is fully recyclable. They’ve also ditched glitter this year to guarantee the recyclability of their paper, proving they are a conscious retailer wanting to help their customers make better choices for the future of our planet.

Marks & Spencer

Taking home the prestigious Christmas number one this year is Marks and Spencer. And if you’re wondering how you top John Lewis’ offering of only stocking fully recyclable paper; M&S have the answer - going plastic free. Recognising that not only is the used wrapping paper a source of waste but the plastic the paper is wrapped in is as well, M&S have made the decision to bare it all and are opting to add an extra 15cm of paper to every wrapping paper roll to limit any damage instead. And they haven’t stopped there – they’ve also included reusable wrapping paper in their range this year. It is quite pricey coming in at £12 for just two wraps, so it may not be the most practical for those who are particularly generous at Christmas time, but... it’s £12 for 2 wraps for life... so definitely a step in the right direction.

The Upshot

Sustainable wrapping paper solutions are far more accessible ahead of Christmas 2021 as retailers are taking their responsibility to the environment more seriously this year – although some are more than others. The most important thing to remember here is that buying recyclable wrapping paper isn’t job done, it’s making sure you and your family and friends knowing it’s recyclable and acting accordingly – don’t forget to do the scrunch test!

Can Wrapping Paper be Recycled? There's A Simple Test To Find Out

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Uncategorized, Awin, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

With the festive season fast approaching, as a nation we’re set to make up for the disappointment of last year which will see even more gifts being exchanged than ever before.

Over 100 million rolls of wrapping paper are used every single Christmas in the UK alone, all of that paper has to go somewhere. But with it roughly equating to over 227,000 miles worth of paper from around 50,000 trees - it’s safe to say that if your Christmas wrap can be recycled, it should be.

But of course, this raises the question, how do you know if the wrapping paper you receive can be recycled? The good news is there’s a simple test:

The Scrunch Test

The quickest and easiest way of knowing if wrapping paper is recyclable is by doing the scrunch test. If you can scrunch wrapping paper into a ball and it stays scrunched, it can be recycled normally with your standard paper recycling provided there is no glitter on it. If the paper can’t be scrunched or springs back open, it can’t be recycled – this is because there’s plastic or foil content in with the paper.

Just remember: if you find your wrapping paper to be recyclable, remove any plastic tape, tags, bows, or ribbon attached to the paper as this will prevent the paper from being recycled.

Stick or Twist

If you’re making the effort with researching and buying recyclable wrapping paper, then don’t ruin it by putting plastic tape on it – particularly if the thought of separating plastic tape from wrapping paper on Christmas morning isn’t appealing to you, then ensure you use, and encourage friends and family to use, paper tape.

As the name suggests, paper tape is made from paper instead of plastic and can be recycled along with the paper or cardboard it’s stuck to – no separating needed!

The Upshot

Recyclable wrapping paper needs to be a non-negotiable for the season of giving and beyond, and paper tape needs to be too to ensure the hard-work doesn’t go to waste – literally.

Just remember – if it scrunches and stays then you’re good to go!

Paper Strapping: The Innovative & Eco-Friendly Alternative To Plastic Strapping

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Uncategorized, Awin, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

If you want to strap, bundle, and secure your parcels without harm to the environment, then paper strapping is the perfect planet-friendly solution to polypropylene plastic strapping for you.

The Switch From Poly To Paper

Conventional polypropylene strapping proves extremely difficult to recycle and often ends up in landfill, the countryside, rivers, and oceans. But with paper strapping, it can easily be recycled alongside all of your cardboard and paper packaging products. We all know the detrimental effects that single-use plastic waste has on the environment, so it’s great to see an entirely eco-friendly alternative that has been produced and can ultimately replace plastic strapping.

Aside from the obvious (being plastic-free), this strapping is made from 100% recyclable FSC certified paper, is compostable, and biodegradable. Requiring less energy to use, this eco-friendly product is great for reducing the demand for fossil fuels and is a more cost effective option compared to plastic strapping.

Following an official analysis of the product, according to the RlSE Research Institutes of Sweden AB “considering the components, the paper strapping should be suited for recycling in established paper recycling systems”.

Tried & Tested

Now to the technical part… ultimately, this paper strapping was designed to completely replace plastic strapping without the need for you to change your machinery and equipment. So, whether you use an automatic machine, semi-automatic machine, hand battery tools or strapping tensioners, the patented design and composition of this paper strapping makes it even easier to switch to plastic-free.

Not only does paper strapping help reduce your operational costs, but the paper material can easily be folded unlike plastic strapping, making it quick and easy to handle, and dispose of. Now you might be thinking, ‘surely paper can’t be strong enough to securely seal large, heavy, bulky items?’, well, with the 55kg break strain, paper strapping can create a very tough and secure seal for a wide variety of items. It works so well, that we even use it in our warehouse to strap our boxes.

So whether you’re wanting to bundle, strap, or secure your items, paper strapping provides a seamless transition from poly to paper, and offers an environmentally sustainable solution that eliminates single use plastic waste.

If you and your business are looking to take you packaging to the next eco level, paper strapping is the way to go. Any questions, queries, or information you may need on whether paper strapping is the product for you, let us know in the comments or get in touch with one of our team members.

What You Do Wednesday: Our Customers & Their Sustainable Packaging

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Uncategorized, Awin, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

Shopping sustainably plays an important role in protecting our planet, and we love that our customers think so too. Whilst it may be difficult to know where to begin, eco-friendly packaging is a great place to start, and we believe that providing a great variety of sustainable packaging options allows our customers to begin or continue to progress on their eco journey.

A couple of months ago, we decided to start a hashtag called #WhatYouDoWednesday for us to showcase how our incredible customers use our eco-friendly packaging, what sustainability means to them and their company, and how they are sharing their sustainability story through their packaging choices.

Take a look at our customer’s planet-friendly packaging...

Honey Bee Studio

With cardboard being one of the materials with the least environmental impact, it's no surprise Honey Bee Studio uses cardboard postal boxes for her company's packaging. These brown postal boxes are fully recyclable and biodegradable - did you know, recycling cardboard can save energy and uses 90% less water and 50% less electricity when making items out of recycled cardboard.


"Being kind to the environment is absolutely at the heart of everything I do at Honey Bee Studio. Not only in the packaging I use but also through the artwork and products I make. When I started my business I knew I wanted to avoid plastic as much as possible in the packaging and always use cardboard and paper - hence me using Priory Direct. I love how easy it is to find eco alternatives on your site and the scoring system you have!"

Honey Bee Studio

Oh Sew Honey

Using eco-friendly packaging is a great way to show your customers your commitment to the environment and protecting our planet for a greener future. At Oh Sew Honey, they've chosen our Priory Elements EcoMailingBags, which are fully recyclable, biodegradable, 100% plastic-free, and made from sustainable materials. Spotted the penguin? there's a reason why we've added animals to many of our Priory Elements Ranges...unfortunately, they are are endangered, and by assigning vulnerable animals to our products, we aim to raise awareness to threats that are affecting their likelihood of survival.

Kiera Flynn Photography

At Kiera Flynn Photography, they opted to ship their products using our Priory Elements EcoMailers, which are made from 100% post consumer waste and contain no plastic. A super ocean friendly packaging alternative that helps to protect our planet. How? Well, with each purchase of these Priory Elements products, we donate 1% of the sales to 1% For The Planet, allowing our customers to make sustainable packaging choices that also work towards driving environmental change.

"When I started my business it was really important to me to make sure that I did so in an environmentally friendly way, which for me meant using minimal packaging and ensuring that it was plastic-free and recyclable from the start!"

Kiera Flynn Photography

By incorporating plastic-free and recyclable packaging into their business, they are helping fight the global plastic waste issue, saving the planet's limited supply of raw materials, and reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Sewshetstitcheco

Who said eco-friendly packaging had to be boring? SewSheStitchesCo shows us how it’s done with their planet-friendly blue tissue paper, adding an eco-friendly pop of colour to their packaging. Not only is it recyclable, but our tissue paper is FSC certified, meaning that it is sourced using responsible forestry practices to maintain sustainability and reduce environmental impact.

Barefoot.Tech

Using sustainable packaging contributes to reducing your carbon footprint, can break down without releasing harmful chemicals, are easy to dispose of, and can either be reused or recycled. But at Barefoot.Tech, they don't stop there, in fact, they believe in taking environmental accountability of their products too. Instead, they recycle and reuse the materials readily out there to make their products.

"All our products are made up of pre-existing materials, recycling 90% of all our fabrics, scraps and trimmings. Therefore using Priory Direct packaging aligns our values as a brand; boxes and padded envelopes are made from recycled content, are plastic-free, 100% recyclable, biodegradable and fully compostable."

Barefoot.Tech

Barefoot.Tech have sealed the deal on their packaging using our Priory Elements Ecotape, which unlike many other packing tapes, is 100% plastic-free, biodegradable, and recyclable - so, when using it to tape up cardboard packaging, your customers can safely recycle both together and reduce their plastic waste.

Our customers are helping protect our planet one parcel at a time - and you can too. Because whilst we can't all do everything, everyone can do something.

What eco-friendly packaging do you use? How are you sharing your sustainability story through your packaging? Let us know.

Don't forget, we're running other great promotions exclusively on our affiliate programme, offer 10% commission for new customers, as well as free next day delivery on orders over £250 - if you haven't already, join us today!

Branding Your Eco Packaging: Telling Your Sustainability Story

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Awin, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

Your packaging is where your brand reaches the customer in a physical sense. Choosing the right materials, and ensuring your customer understands them, is a huge opportunity for your brand to demonstrate its commitment to the environment.

Swapping to a sustainable solution is the sensible thing to do, however not informing your customer of your packaging’s eco credentials renders your smart choice almost useless. Plastic manufacturers are turning to grass, polythene producers are turning to potato starch, but unless it’s completely apparent that these new eco-friendly products aren’t the same as the age-old plastics which we’re all guilty of binning, we’re not going to see any considerable change.

The majority of stock packaging lines include official eco markers as standard, though when businesses create their own unique beautiful branded packaging, eco icons tend to be neglected and forgotten about. Whichever solution, stock or bespoke, is best for your business, it’s important to realise that these markers are a great way to communicate your values to your customers, tell your eco story, and help to evangelise your brand’s commitment to sustainability.

Official Eco Markers

If your main focus is instant recognition on a global or national scale, it may be wise to stick with the more traditional and official eco markers. We’ve put just a few below which you should already be familiar with, but as the eco-friendly need continues to grow, we’re seeing more and more rise in popularity and come to the forefront:

FSC
PEFC
Compostable
FSC promotes responsible management of the world's rainforests so you can recognise your items are from well-managed forests.PEFC promotes responsible management of the world's rainforests throughout the supply chain so you can buy sustainably sourced and produced items.Compostable logo bearers are certified to be industrially compostable according to the European standard EN 13432/14955.
Plastic Free
Mobius Loop
Green Dot
Plastic Free is used to indicate where products are exactly that, and most prominently used in the food and drinks industry.The recyclable logo is universally recognised for where the products' materials are partially or totally recyclable.The green dot signifies the manufacturer has made a financial contribution towards the recovery and recycling of packaging.

Unofficial Eco Markers

You don't have to stick with the official markers to show off the eco-credentials of your packaging. We’ve listed just a few examples of creative ways to speak to your customers about the eco-friendliness of your packaging to show it can be fun, on-brand, and easy-to-achieve:

Biodegradable Sustainably Sourced
An easy and effective way to communicate important eco credentials of your product packaging. Made sustainably but no official marker? Combine multiple sustainable source credentials with this logo.
Plastic Free I am not Rubbish
Show you understand and care about the fight against plastic in the oceans by adding this marker to your plastic free products. Be fun but blatant with your message and speak directly to your customers about the packaging material.

Get Inspired

Care/of

Care/of, a personalised vitamin and supplement company made a sustainability shift in their packaging back in April 2019. Their vitamin packs are now made with a plant-based film; making them a great sustainable, compostable packaging option. They inform their customers of this packaging choice by opting for simple, yet effective messaging; speaking directly to the consumer and highlighting the eco credentials. ‘This pack is now made with compostable, plant-based materials’ is a message that cannot be missed or ignored, and one that encourages customers to dispose of the packaging correctly.

Priory Elements

Branding your packing tape is an incredibly effective way to add a personal touch to your despatches as it is, but using it to add an eco-message is an even smarter solution. Priory Elements, our very own brand of sustainable, planet friendly packaging solutions, uses a mixture of simple eco messaging and unofficial markers. Printed with ‘Delivered in planet friendly packaging’ and easy to understand icons, the Priory Elements EcoTape shows customers our eco values and draws attention to the sustainability of the product. Encouraging end users to dispose of packaging correctly is hugely important, and, therefore, simple branding can help hone in on the message.

Ask The Experts

By working together to swap to eco-friendly products and educating and informing business owners, we’re paving the way to a greener future for us all. We hope this has given you all the information you could need to know about eco markers and the importance of passing on the message to your customers, and probably a little bit more too. We pride ourselves on our service and sharing our knowledge wherever possible, so if you have any questions then please speak to us on live chat, give us a call on 01622 580100, or use our Contact page.

Recycled vs New Materials - Which is Better to Protect Our Planet?

Written by PrioryDirect on . Posted in Awin, Business Services (B2B), UK

We’ve all been told that recycling plays a key role in saving the planet - but have you ever wondered how it helps, thought about what it does, or questioned what impact it actually has on the environment?

When it comes to recycling, as with most things in the fight against climate change, the small things you do really can and will make a big difference on a larger scale. But don’t just take our word for it – here are some statistics for what you’ve been wanting to know:

The Current Situation

In the UK, the most recent waste statistics show that we’re actually not doing too badly at all, with 70.2% of packaging waste being either recycled or recovered. 

It’s a good start for sure, but it does mean that nearly a third of packaging isn’t making it’s way into the recycling bin. It’s crucial businesses start making a conscious effort with their packaging, and most importantly, telling their customers what to do once they’ve finished with it. You can spend a lot of money on ensuring your packaging is super eco-friendly, but if it doesn’t tell your customers what it is or what they need to do with it, it’s wasted effort, so brand your eco-friendly packaging with easy-to-understand messages or symbols for next steps.

However, all of the current UK recycling efforts are estimated to be saving more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 per year – the equivalent to taking 5 million cars off the road. This really goes to prove the power of a seemingly small effort from millions of individuals - it really does add up!

The environmental benefits don’t stop with lower carbon emissions either – when recycled material makes its way back into the manufacturing process, the difference in using recycled and raw materials is very apparent.

Manufacturing Using Recycled Materials

Recycled paper can be made by using just a few non-hazardous chemicals, while virgin paper is produced with hundreds of hazardous and highly toxic chemicals. Not only that, but making paper from recycled paper uses 40% less energy, and emits 55% less air and water pollution than making it from virgin wood fibres.

The benefits don’t stop with paper either, as using just one tonne of recycled plastic saves 5,774 Kwh of energy and 16.3 barrels of oil. Simply ensuring the plastic waste from your household alone is properly disposed of would have such a large, positive impact on the environment, helping to get it back into the manufacturing process, and reducing the need for raw plastics.

With all of this in mind, you’re not alone in questioning if there’s really any positives associated with using raw or virgin materials? Well, are there? Let’s take a look.

Manufacturing Using Raw Materials

Using raw materials undoubtedly has a huge environmental impact, and not in a good way either. However, given the increased demand over recent years for more eco-friendly packaging, more and more manufacturers are choosing to use new, innovative materials which have a low environmental impact up-front and can be recycled time and time again.

For example, grass paper (exactly what the name suggests, paper made from grass), is brand new to the packaging world. Using grass to make paper uses 50% less raw material, 85% less energy, and 99% less water than wood does.

It’s important to bear in mind that you can only recycle a material so many times, so we’d never be able to completely remove raw materials from use. Grass is a fast growing, renewable resource that is naturally biodegradable and compostable, which would be far better for the environment to have in the supply chain than wood pulp paper.

The Verdict

Without a doubt, the environmental benefits of using recycled materials far outweigh raw materials. If packaging could only be made from recycled materials the planet would be better for it. One thing is for certain, the more sustainable the raw material is, the better it’ll be for the planet the first time it’s used, and every time thereafter.

If you stop for a moment and think about your recycling efforts - do you do everything you could? Are you aware of the recyclability of everyday items you ordinarily throw away? Our Recycling Locator widget allows you to find what and where you can recycle materials and items - and even if it can be done at home or not. We know that recycling can make a huge difference in the fight against climate change, and all of our individual efforts will have a collective impact which we can be proud of.

At RAJA UK Packaging, there's no cardboard shortage!

Written by RAJA on . Posted in Uncategorized, Business Services (B2B), Business Services (B2B), UK

INDUSTRY NEWS

Some of you may have heard in the media recently of the cardboard shortage the industry is facing. With the increase of online shopping due to store closures, retailers need packaging, particularly cardboard packaging to ship goods to customers.

Just to provide you with an insight into our industry and what RAJA have experienced; during the lead up to Christmas, we had to revise our delivery time to up 72 hours instead of next day. These new level of sales have never been experienced.  From March 2020 just after the first lockdown was announced, sales across our product range were at a new high, increasing more so with the lead up to Christmas (consumers were shopping online for gifts, and retailers needing supplies to send their products). Now in 2021 although sales have decreased, we still find ourselves experiencing incredible numbers – with shops still closed and people not able to travel – goods are being shipped meaning packaging is required. We are servicing the increased demand from our existing customers, and also, welcoming an incredible rate of new customers.

At the beginning of 2020 we were close to moving into our brand new and bigger warehouse, completing the move in July 2020. You could say we were very lucky, to not only successfully relocate during a pandemic, but also had the opportunity to stock up across our product range, enabling us to service customers through Christmas 2020, and now hopefully continuing throughout 2021.

Packaging is a necessity, and this trend will not be slowing down any time soon.

Priory Direct Charity Support Program

Here at Priory Direct our mission is to reduce the impact of ecommerce on the planet and also use our business as a vehicle for good. As well as focusing on sustainable, eco-friendly packaging and minimising environmental damage, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to donate and give back to charitable causes; that’s why we’ve created the Priory Direct Charity Support Program.

Every order that is placed with us, we give 1% back to the customer in the form of reward points which are redeemable against future orders; customers now have the option to donate the monetary value of those reward points to their chosen charity. We have partnered with four wonderful charities to ensure that we - are our customers - are helping to make a real difference.

Our charity partners are:

  • Cancer Research UK - We pioneer research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. We fund scientists, doctors, and nurses to help beat cancer sooner.
  • Save The Children - In the UK and around the world, we make sure children are safe and healthy. We support them to learn, grow and become who they want to be.
  • 1% For The Planet - We fund forces for environmental good, supporting diverse environmental organisations to have a bigger and better impact; we can do more together than we can alone
  • Heart of Kent Hospice - We make every day precious at the most difficult of times by providing exceptional care to people living with a terminal illness in Maidstone, Tonbridge, Malling and surrounding areas.

Donating is simple; once customers have put their items in the basket and gone through to the checkout, they will be presented with the option of donating their reward points to one of our charity partners. Once making that selection, we handle the rest from there, ensuring customers well earned points are correctly assigned and donated. Giving to charity has never been easier and never felt so good!

Don't forget, we're running great promotions exclusively on our affiliate programme, offer 7.5% commission for new customers, as well as free next day delivery on orders over £250 - if you haven't already, join us today!

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.

Jiffy Green Padded Bags

CORRUGATED CARDBOARD ROLLS

Whether you're just starting out on your eco-friendly journey or looking to improve individual aspects of your operation, we’re confident we have the products and the expertise to help you. As a business we have made a commitment to reduce our impact, and the impact of our industry, on the environment so you can be proud in the knowledge that your packaging and eCommerce supplies are manufactured and delivered in the most eco-friendly way possible.
