So why Eco - Friendly?
Apart from making
sure that we are all doing our bit to save the planet, we are also making use
of the resources we have around us and reusing our resources. By doing this we
are cutting down our waste which will, in turn, save money for everyone. Imagine
not having to pay as much for your waste collection.
And guess what? By using recyclable materials
you will save money on the Plastic Tax that is due to be enforced in March 2022. If you you are unsure of what the plastic tax in 2022 is about. Why not take a look at our blog page

How about switching from pallet wrap? Instead, why not try our multi-use Pallet shell.
By using the pallet shell, you will save time and money. You may say, well, the
pallet shell is plastic, yes, it is, but it is partly recycled! This means from
the moment they start manufacturing; the environmental impact is reduced. There

pallet wrapping. And by double stacking, you are reducing your carbon footprint
because you won’t have to use as many vehicles or do as many trips.
Another product you could switch out for an
eco-friendlier alternative is packing tape. Did you know that PVC (also known
as Vinyl) tape is the most un-environmentally friendly tape on the market? Why
not try our
paper tapes? We do both water-activated and
self-adhesive. For water-activated tapes, we can also supply the machines, both
automatic and manual. We do 4 different types of WAT tapes including
reinforced. Self–adhesive paper tapes, in reinforced and plain. Another bonus
about the tapes is that they fit on a standard tape gun, or with the plain tape, it’s finger tearable. The paper tapes have a name for being more expensive,
but the prices are coming down, and
how can you put a price on this earth?
How can you make a difference?
Why not look
at some of the things that you use every day?
For example, your water bottle. Do
you use a single-use plastic water bottle every day? Why not switch to a
reusable water bottle? There are plenty of choices out there, you could even
personalise your water bottle.
Another example is cling film that you may wrap
your sandwiches in, how about putting them in a box or reusable wax wrap? Simple things like
removing single-use plastic from your life will have an impact on the world we
