Paper alternative to bubble wrap

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

With its Paperbubble paper sheets, protective packaging specialist Storopack now offers an eco-friendly substitute for traditional bubble cushioning in its range.

The new paper sheets offer the same protective properties as conventional air bubble products. Because they are 100 percent recyclable and made from renewable raw materials, Storopack’s paper sheets help reduce the use of primary raw materials and fossil resources, which makes them ideal for companies that value both high-quality protective packaging and sustainability.

“Good product design is a fundamental enabler of the circular economy. Storopack applies eco-design principles to make the packaging products more sustainable. Our approach is to avoid excess packaging with unnecessary use of resources,” explained Paul Deis, paper product manager at Storopack.

The paper sheets are especially suitable for shipping sensitive and small products such as cosmetics and electronic components as well as online mail order goods. The pre-produced paper sheets are perforated in the middle. This enables the packer to choose the right amount of packaging and reduce waste.

The paper can wrap, cushion and fill voids in the shippping box. Paperbubble is available in a box of 300 sheets. The box enables simple removal of the paper cushions directly at the packing station, and doesn’t require a machine system, meaning it can be integrated into the existing distribution line with minimal investment.
