Paper Pads: Leading the Charge in Eco-Friendly Protective Packaging Solutions
In a world where millions of products and materials get shipped every hour, protective packaging solutions play a major role in making this possible. Without the necessary protection, consumers would more often than not receive damaged products, and businesses would lose large portions of their profits. Typically, these solutions get discarded after use, becoming a waste byproduct. Until now. Paper pads – available from FROMM Packaging Systems – offer a much more environmentally responsible solution.
These innovative paper pads build on the practicality of airpads. Airpads have already made a significant change to how protective packaging solutions are viewed. Unlike bubble wrap, packaging beans or stuffed paper, airpads are large, air-filled bags, which are used to secure items inside packaging to prevent them from getting damaged. These large pads weigh very little, making them ideal for transporting, and require a fraction of the material used by other protective packaging solutions. In fact, they are 99% air, and only 1% film.
Now, using so little materials compared to other packaging solutions is already a positive for the environment, as the waste generated is so much less. Additionally, these pads are reusable. But what if it could be even more eco-friendly? It can be, using recycled paper, which is exactly what we have done.
Paper pads follow the same design as airpads but, as the name suggests, is made from paper (75% recycled, in this case) to bring you the best of both worlds – the efficiency of the air cushions plus a responsible environmental image. This makes it ideal for businesses whose brands are built on an eco-friendly foundation. Often the only available – and necessary – packaging solutions are either made from plastic, or seem excessively wasteful. Now, a brand can maintain its image throughout its entire sales cycle, including package delivery. To add to the benefits, these pads are also recyclable, ensuring that this product ticks every single one of the boxes when it comes to the concept of reduce, reuse and recycle.
