Reasons to reduce plastic consumption

In 2020, Packaging Innovations primary goal was to help our customers reduce their plastic consumption. As with many people and businesses the coronavirus has ripped up those plans for 2020 and put everyone in disaster recovery mode.

Or has it…

The fact is that our primary objective of reducing plastic always produces a cost saving for our clients and now more than ever businesses need to cut any excess fat to ensure survival through this tough time to ensure that they thrive on the other side.

Packaging Innovations was founded in 2008 and that word Innovations has always been at the forefront of our minds.

"It is not the strangest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, it is the ones that are most adaptable to change." Charles Darwin

The threat of financial recession makes people do things they should have done months or even years ago. Reducing plastic and cutting costs is one of those things that makes a real difference long term.

  • Our average client saves between 50-60% in term of plastic consumption and 10-20% in terms of cost

  • Best result to date 86% plastic reduction and 70% cost reduction (the picture at the top of the page 1.2kg per pallet to 168grams)

It depends on so many variables what your business will achieve, you don’t know until you do the analysis. How competitively you negotiate your cost per roll doesn’t matter, we are not comparing apples with apples. It’s how many pallets that roll can wrap vs our thinner stronger alternative products that make all the difference.

Many of our customers are in the “Essential Products” bracket, so we must carry on. We need to make sure food, drinks and pharmaceutical supplies are still being packaged up to be sent to the areas around the country that need them the most.

What can we do? Guaranteed cost saving and guaranteed plastic reduction.  The usual way in which we introduce our USP plastic reducing products is to pitch up at your door with a testing kit and do a job similar to that outlined in this video click here. However, it is not only with Fiber Film that we do this and not only with Machine applied wrap - we can do it with a hand wrap, heat shrink wrap, pallet covers, box liners, poly bags…literally anything made from polythene.

How will we do it? Remotely of course! Well we can’t come to your door anymore, so we have devised a step by step system to allow you to perform a guided self-assessment. No matter what the product, we can (with your assistance) remotely assess the current cost and the current plastic consumption per unit and send you your product offering with some PDF instructions of how the product differs and what you need to do to get the best out of it.

When can we do it? Now! If your business is sending out pallets and you want to reduce plastic and costs, we can help now. Click here to start the process.
