One of the biggest trends globally is the growing awareness of eco-friendly packaging solutions. In the aftermath of 2019’s phrase of the year being ‘Climate Emergency’ and developing concerns about problematic plastics and eco threats, more consumers are making a conscious effort to change the way they buy, and the expectations they have from companies.
At a global level, businesses have seen the number of consumers who say they would be willing to pay more for sustainable/eco-friendly products grow to 57% in recent years. With accountability now being held by customers against businesses who don’t show eco-friendly options or at least proof of environmental consciousness, you need to be aware of the changing world of packaging.
As a supplier, Springpack is aware of its position in the constantly evolving world of eco-friendly packaging. In the UK it is estimated that five million tonnes of plastic are used every year, nearly half of which is packaging, and we strive to provide solutions for businesses to reduce that number.
We want companies to choose eco-friendly packaging for all the advantages it has to offer, whether that’s reducing their waste, improving their sustainability or giving eco-orientated customers the confidence to purchase from them. Below you can find some fantastic product solutions to do just that.
Paper Mailing Bags: Is Paper Packaging Eco-Friendly?
Our Paper Mailing Bags are an environmentally-friendly alternative to polythene mailing bags. They are 100% plastic-free and designed to resist damage during transit with a tear-proof and water repellent composition.
Being confident that your products will arrive safely to your customers is a big deal. Not only is it important for making your customers feel positive about your service but damaged goods will directly impact your bottom line through replacements and refunds. Tears or wear to your products caused by split packaging will result in negative impressions and feedback. The strong peel and seal closure ensures a secure fasten when closing the packaging.
Our Paper Mailing Bags can also be printed on for branding or imagery that add an extra personal touch and instant recognition for your customer base.
When it comes to storage, our planet-friendly Paper Mailing Bags are easily stored and can have a 5-year shelf life, so you can keep big stocks for long periods and know you’ve always got an eco-friendly, recyclable solution whenever you need one.
Gummed Paper Tape
If you are looking for a smarter, more secure way to seal your boxes then look no further than Springpack’s Gummed Paper Tape.
Gummed Paper Tape is much stronger than standard packing tape and can make your entire parcel more secure during delivery. It’s also tamper-proof, meaning that the end customer can instantly recognise if their package has been changed/opened/messed with during transit.
Gummed Paper Tape is also great for the clean appearance of your packaging. We have white and brown Gummed Paper Tape available for an inconspicuous sealing solution that works with both white and brown cardboard boxes or other variants of packaging.
Consumers are more focused now on all aspects of the supply chain; from the way packaging is produced to the delivery through to the disposal. Customers who receive their product in a packaging form that can’t be recycled may be actively unimpressed. After all, recyclability is the most important factor for customers that care about sustainability.
