Times are changing. Sustainability and environmental awareness are paramount in today’s society and marketplace, increasing the importance of recycling and waste reduction.
The advancements made in sustainable food packaging in the last 10 years has been incredible, with Irish companies like Down2Earth Materials leading the charge.
We feel that the industrial packaging sector is lacking in these sustainable options so we have been working hard to source and supply more sustainable options to your traditional packaging.
Here are 5 products you can switch to for a more sustainable packaging option.

2. Hexcel Wrap
Hexcel Wrap is a protective packaging material designed to replace plastic based products such as Bubble Wrap.
This 100% recyclable and compostable material, protects and keeps products in place, thanks to the unique interlocking design which means adhesive tape isn’t required. Here are some of it’s benefits and features:
Cushioning: Eliminates damage with exceptional protection. The hexagonal cells create an interlocking web that traps all your items.
Source Reduction: Reduces your wrap and void fill packaging to just Hexcel; saving space, logistics, time and money.
Eliminate taping: The hexagonal cells keep Hexcel Wrap from unraveling.
Sustainability: Made from paper, the most sustainable, reusable, compostable and recyclable material on the planet. Your customers will thank you for using a green wrapping product.
Speed: Without taping and easy tearing of exactly the right amount, you can expect 25-50% faster packing speeds.
