Environmental consciousness is getting stronger and many technological and scientific breakthroughs have aided the disruption of several industries by biodegradable and eco-friendly products. (Related Topic:┬áprotective packaging,┬áVCI paper,┬ámoisture barrier bags)
Green biodegradable bubble wrap is one of these products and it has come to change the game for many business owners trying to be more environmentally responsible by reducing their companiesÔÇÖ carbon footprint and providing better service for their clients.
RELATED:┬áEdco Supply Corporation is a leading packaging expert that specializes in protective packaging such as moisture barrier bags and VCI paper. They offer military spec packaging solutions to anyone in need. You can get in touch with them by calling at 1-800-221-0918.
This product is an environmentally friendly alternative to cushion packaging, and what makes it even more interesting is the special additive that is included during production stage to make the bubble film biodegradable, allowing it to decompose within a 12 to 24-month period in a landfill. The harmless residue matter is simply absorbed into the ground but this doesnÔÇÖt mean the properties of this bubble wrap as protective packaging are affected. Actually, itÔÇÖs quite the opposite: the high-quality bubble film maximizes air retention and guarantees long-term cushion protection against shock and vibration.
This material comes in a standard bubble diameter of 10mm and 4mm in height but large bubble and other roll heights are available upon request.
It is evident that even if the changes within the mil-spec packaging industry come at a slow pace, these changes are perhaps more meaningful than those coming at higher speeds in other industries.
ItÔÇÖs no secret that plastic is greatly detrimental to the environment. However, in many ways, our economy depends on plastic and its applications to thrive ÔÇôat least for the time being. Nevertheless, it is evident that mechanisms have been put in place to slowly yet effectively produce alternatives that can meet industry expectations without having such a negative impact on the environment.
Now it is the turn of other innovators within the supply chain management and the industrial packaging spaces to come up with other solutions and ideas that can help improve processes and the overall landscape for the industry while reducing their negative environmental impact.
