SUstainable Protective Packaging Products

Paper Packaging - Void Fill & Dunnage
Paper Void Fill

All-natural paper-based void fill solutions are 100% renewable, reusable, and recyclable.

A paper-based filler offers excellent physical properties in terms of absorbing shocks and protecting sensitive products and is also more sustainable than plastic alternatives.

WrapPack - Paper Packaging
Paper Wrapping

Wrapping is often an important element of packaging, providing protection against surface abrasion and minor handling incidents.

Paper wrapping solutions safeguard products against these challenges, and they are also designed to prevent damage caused by the internal impacts that can result when several items are packed together in the same container.

Paper Cushioning
Paper Cushioning

Cushioning is used to protect fragile items during shipping. Packages are often handled with little or no care during transport, so precautions are needed to prevent damage. Shocks and vibration are controlled by cushioning, significantly reducing broken box contents and subsequent returns.


Recycled Content Bubble Wrap

Want to protect your items — and help protect the environment? Buying our eco-friendly bubble cushioning reduces plastic waste by helping to increase global demand for recycled plastic and encourage investment in recycling technology innovation. That means more plastic can be efficiently recycled into new products — and stay out of landfills and oceans.

Eco-Friendly Air Pillows
Recycled Content Air Pillows

Air pillows made from recycled content provide the benefits of void fill while featuring at least 95% post-industrial material. Each pillow is manufactured from reusable, low-density polyethylene.

These air pillows may be recycled at 18,000 retail store drop-off locations nationwide.

Recycled Content Inflatable Cushioning

Recycled content inflatable cushioning creates a distinct eco-friendly advantage over standard inflatable bubble, which is made from virgin resin.

Cushion your products to protect against vibration and shock during shipping and handling while enhancing sustainability. This cushioning is inflatable on demand, which means more efficient storing and shipping.

Eco-Friendly Tapes & Adhesives

Water Activated Tape

As the first certified recyclable carton sealing tape, water-activated tape (WAT) is a Kraft paper tape that is re-pulpable with the corrugate it is applied to.

It bonds instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber surfaces and therefore, generates an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper-evident package.

Eco-Friendly Films & Bundling Supplies

Sigma Vanish Stretch Film
bio-Assimilated Stretch Film

Sigma VANISH is an innovative stretch film that after 2 years breaks down by bio-assimilation, leaving no microplastics or toxins behind.

Packaging Supplies - Stretch Film
Ultra-Thin Stretch Films

Choose a film designed with sustainability in mind. We offer several high-performance down-gauged stretch films that allow you to reduce plastic usage while maintaining superior load containment.

Stretch Film
Pre-Stretch Stretch Film

Decrease the amount of plastic used in your operation by switching to pre-stretch films with specialized additives that allow for high load containment and easier application while requiring less poly-based material.

Polyester Strapping
Recycled Content Strapping

We provide a full range of strapping, including high-performance embossed polyester manufactured from recycled and virgin content. 

Packaging - Edge Protection
REcyclable Edge Protection

We offer sustainable edge protection solutions to protect and stabilize loads during transport, including cornerboards made from paperboard that are 100% recyclable.
