08 Jul 2010 Is Planet versus Profit a Necessary Choice in Sustainable Packaging?
In most cases the answer is no. We realize most businesses today are facing enormous pressure to control or reduce packaging costs and our goal is to make sure that an eco conscious company is able to do the right thing in terms of the environment AND save money in the process.
Eco Friendly Packaging Products Are Available and Affordable
Our company objective from the very beginning was to make eco friendly packaging products easy to find and competitive in price compared to standard, non-green products. It has not always been easy but with persistence, years of experience and a dash of innovation, we have managed to deliver a wide variety of green packaging products that are price competitive and environmentally responsible.
Three years later, some of our most popular products are:
• Globe Guard 100% recycled (PCW) content corrugated shipping boxes. Stock and custom sizes, plain Kraft and printed in just about any weight or style.
• Globe Guard Mailers ranging from corrugated die cut to paper, in padded and unpadded designs, as well as 100% bubble lined plastic mailers.
• Globe Guard stretch wrapping films for pallet wrapping and bundling. Available in high yield formulations and our new oxo-biodegradable version.
• Manual void fill and protective packaging including five different Globe Guard packaging papers, loose void fill products and our recently introduced Globe Guard oxo-biodegradable bubble packaging on rolls.
• Automated void fill options including void fill inflatable pillows in a 100% recycled content plastic and a biodegradable version too.
No Eco or Quality Compromise Necessary
Many customers are pleasantly surprised and relieved when they see our pricing on most of our green packaging products because they expect to pay more. After all, that is what they have heard and have come to believe. They are equally impressed when they see there is no sacrifice of quality or strength when using a material that is friendlier to the environment.
Sustainable packaging is indeed of high quality, readily available and affordable. We would appreciate the opportunity to prove it to you, the same way we have to some of the largest and greenest companies in America.
