Protective Paper Systems
The plastic crisis is more urgent than you think
The world produces more than 400 million tons of plastics every year, and only 9% is recycled. People are demanding change, and companies are taking notice.
66% of global consumers say they’re willing to pay more for sustainable goods.
84% of consumers seek out responsible products wherever possible.
81% of consumers believe it’s very important that companies implement programs to improve the environment.
127 out of 192 countries have legislated to regulate the manufacture, sale, use and disposal of single-use plastic.
60+ Countries have introduced bans and levies to curb single-use plastic waste.
A new EU-wide strategy on plastics is aiming to achieve a more circular economy. It seeks to address plastic pollution, and to demonstrate the business case for change. The top-level features are:
A ban on selected single-use plastic products where there are alternatives.
Ambitious recycling targets for all packaging materials. New plastic products must contain at least 50% recycled materials by 2025 and 75% by 2035.
Extended manufacturer responsibility: producers of relevant products must share the costs of clean-up, waste management, and awareness campaigns
The case to transition to protective paper packaging is growing more important.
Renewable: Paper packaging is one of the most sustainable options as it is a renewable resource. Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow and paper continues to store carbon throughout its lifetime.
Biodegradable: Biological organisms can break down paper packaging into basic compounds such as CO2, water, and biomass. For paper, this can take as little as a week to a few months. Plastics can take so long to degrade that for all practical purposes they are considered non-biodegradable.
Curbside Recyclable: Recycling paper packaging conserves natural resources, saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces landfill. It also reduces our dependence on oil-based plastics. Paper is the most recycled product in Europe (above 72%)
Create An Experience
Product delivery and unboxing is a crucial (and continuously growing) part of e-commerce business. You don’t have the storefront and window displays of traditional retailers to draw consumers in. That means your packaging provides the first impression, and elevates a customer’s purchasing experience. Good presentation can help boost e-commerce sales, attract repeat customers, and build your brand.
Protective paper packaging provides the consumers with a sustainable packaging that is easy to dispose of and looks great.
Your packaging process needs to be quick, ergonomic and cost efficient. Warehouse space is becoming rarer and more expensive, so efficient integration of your packaging solution is vital. We will help you to create an outstanding paper based protective packaging solution that is tailored to your own needs and operational processes.
