Why FROMM Should Be Your No. 1 Choice for Sustainable Packaging Solutions

While packaging solutions are an absolute necessity for the manufacturing, handling, storage and transport of almost all types of goods, an irresponsible approach to packaging can lead to inefficiencies along the production and supply lines, as well as excessive waste generation. So, how do you ensure the packaging solutions your business uses are sustainable?

This is a question that FROMM has asked itself when developing its products – how do we ensure our packaging solutions are sustainable while still meeting the high-quality demands of our clients? And we’re very proud to say that we have the answer.


The first step to being sustainable, is to minimise the amount of waste that needs to be processed in the first place. And, since innovation is right up our alley, this is a great place for us to start.

Replacing the traditional waste-heavy protective and void-filling materials, our airpad protective material consists of 99% air and 1% film. Less material, less weight and less storage space requirements result in less waste, lower costs and substantial overall savings. So, not only does less material end up in landfills, our protective packaging solutions also help reduce the carbon impact of transportation by reducing the weight of packages being transported compared to those using traditional protective materials.


The next step in ensuring sustainability in our industry is by looking at reusable solutions. As long as something is being used, it does not end up in a landfill. Our airpads mentioned above, for example, are designed to be reusable. So, not only do they create less waste, by using less material, they also have an extended life, resulting in even less waste.


Lastly, recycle where possible. Most of our products are made from recycled material, and are also recyclable after use. STARstrap™, our PET strapping, for example, is made of 100% polyester. The bulk of this raw material is manufactured in the FROMM-owned plastics recycling plant in Wolfen, Germany. In fact, FROMM is one of the largest PET recycling companies in the world.

More than ever, there is a focus on efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible to protect our environment – and FROMM takes this challenge to be sustainable very seriously, while still delivering packaging solutions of the highest quality. We do our part conscientiously, and we will continue to do so in the future, improving our processes even further wherever we can.

So, whether you are looking for the absolute best in sustainable wrapping, strapping or protective packaging solutions, get in touch with the expert team at FROMM today.
