From Beginning to End: Biodegradable Packaging Options

Sustainability is the idea of maintaining today’s resources in such a way that prevents them from depleting, keeping them in existence for the needs of future generations. Although the concept of sustainability has been around for a long time, we are realizing now that it is more important than ever. Many companies are adjusting their ways of doing business in order to bring in new and innovative technologies that can help reduce their carbon footprint. In addition, consumers are becoming more aware and using this knowledge to make purchasing decisions that support sustainability efforts.

Here at The Packaging Company, we understand the importance of going green and we know how important it is to minimize our waste, reduce our carbon footprint and promote conservation. For these reasons we are constantly evolving our processes and consumer offerings. We currently offer a variety of sustainable, compostable packaging solutions for our customers and businesses across North America. Take a look below at our beginning to end packaging solutions that are economically friendly.

Compostable Packaging Containers

Our sustainability efforts start right from the beginning with biodegradable packaging solutions such as the ones listed below:

Kraft Boxes

Kraft boxes come in many different sizes and are the perfect solution for shipping your products. Additionally, the durability and strength of our kraft boxes are great for packaging more fragile items. These boxes are 100% compostable and recyclable at the end of their lifecycle but before you do, consider reusing your cardboard box in a creative way.

Eco-Friendly Mailer Bags

For shipping smaller products, we offer eco-friendly mailer bags that are made of 100% recycled materials. These bags also have a self seal technology that eliminates the need for tape, saving not only the environment but both time and money for our customers.

Biodegradable Poly Bags

If the product you’re shipping has loose pieces or small parts that need to be contained, consider using our biodegradable poly bags instead of plastic bags. They come in many different sizes, are fully sealable and are 100% compostable.

Compostable Void Filler

When using cardboard boxes it is important to fill the empty space in the box to avoid your product from moving around during the shipping process. There are many options for void fill but we offer two great and economical options here at The Packaging Company that are also biodegradable!

Kraft Paper

Kraft paper is an extremely economical void fill that is perfect for wrapping products as well. Much of our kraft paper is made from recycled materials and are 100% biodegradable at the end of their lifecycle. In addition there are endless uses for kraft paper outside of packaging, take a look at some of these creative uses for kraft paper.

Biodegradable Packing Peanuts

Biodegradable packaging peanuts are a really common way to fill the void in a package which is why we offer a more environmentally friendly version of them. These are 100% safe to compost in both your garden and home compost bin.

Sealing Your Package with Recyclable Tape

Tape is used on almost every package that is sent throughout the mail. Finding other ways to seal our packages and keep plastic tape out of the landfill is an extremely small and important step that every business can take in order to make a huge impact.

Water Activated Kraft Tape

Water activated kraft tape is strong and flexible and it provides an instant tamperproof bond with corrugated cardboard. It is also unaffected by extreme weather conditions making it the perfect solution for all your shipping needs. Our water activated kraft tape is reinforced for extra strength and can be used with larger/heavier boxes. You can still recycle the boxes and tape, however the fibreglass reinforcement is screened out during the recycling process.
