How to Create a Hybrid Packing Environment
Over the last decade, there’s been growing momentum of environmental campaigns that have made us all more aware of the damage that packaging waste is having on the planet. This movement has led to a shift in consumer demand and far greater scrutiny of how goods are made, how they are packaged and how they are shipped – people want to ensure that there’s minimal impact on the environment.
As concerned consumers, we’re not wrong in making such demands, however for many businesses there’s a worry that adapting entire shipping processes into total eco-friendly operations will come at a heavy cost and imposition.
The reality is that switching to environmentally friendly packaging is not only easy, it also won’t require any substantial operational changes, nor will it necessarily mean changing your choice of packing medium.
‘Plug in’ complementary packing technology
It may sound simple and that’s because it is. You’ve already invested in your packing infrastructure so rather than change it all, just look to integrate a complementary green packaging solution to work alongside your existing systems.
At Pregis, our powerful, packing technology is designed to slot seamlessly into any existing packing environment to meet customers’ high volume, on-demand needs. Whether it’s a paper, air or loose-fill solution, the technology is totally adaptable and can easily integrate with conveyor systems, packing stations, or work free-standing.
For even more convenience, Pregis’ packaging systems can be modified in almost any way to fit into a bespoke packing area, delivering precise, low cost packaging at high speeds.
Keep your packaging medium, just switch to a greener option!
For many businesses, the use of traditional plastic air bags or polystyrene chips is a convenient, tried and trusted way of protecting goods. No problem - simply switch to a ‘greener’ version of the medium that you currently use. Pregis offers a range of eco-friendly alternatives including options which are recycled, biodegradable, compostable and even water soluble - all offering the same reliable protection that you enjoy now.
All of our environmentally friendly packaging solutions are also designed to be energy efficient, ergonomic and user-friendly too. And to make life really simple, our online ordering system allows you to order top-up consumables for next day delivery.
Every little step you make helps
The important message here is that businesses shouldn’t be worried about moving towards more sustainable packing methods, as your shipping standards shouldn’t be compromised in any way. So, rather than trying to change your entire operation at once, just begin by changing some of it.
