The Positive Side of Plastic

Environmentally Friendly Packaging Solutions

Plastic. Yes, we want to talk about plastic and its positives, because despite what the news would have you believe – not all plastics are bad.

We are not here to preach to the masses that plastic, in general, is not destroying ecosystems and affecting our planet – because that is a fact. But we are here to educate on the different types of plastics available and how some are actually good for the environment. The British Plastics Federation created an informative document regarding the importance of plastics, this can be accessed here.

Polypropylene is made up purely of carbon and hydrogen and is manufactured without any dangerous emissions. This cannot be said for cardboard or polystyrene alternatives.

Why you should choose Tri-Pack...

Reduced Storage Costs

Tri-Pack packaging can reduce your storage costs and space by as much as 85% due to our unique flat-packed design. Our patented easy-erect design will complete the box in seconds.

Reduced Delivery Costs

We can reduce your delivery costs as our packaging is light weight and with our unique flat pack design, more packaging can fit on a single pallet.

Faster Cool Down

Secure Shipping

Tri-trans tapeless closure design makes sure the packaging is secure when in transit, but it is also able to collapse easily for storage.

100% Dirt & Dust Free

Our patented sealed edge system can be applied to the packaging by sealing all the open flutes, which makes it imperishable to dirt and dust, easier to clean and reuse.


100% chemically inactive and none hazardous.

Heat Resistant

Polypropylene will biodegrade 2,000 quicker than your standard plastic bottle and 400 times quicker than a single carrier bag.

100% Natural

Polypropylene can be incinerated without any harm to the environment, it gives off only water-vapour and carbon dioxide, which is then converted by photosynthesis.


Our packaging is lightweight meaning it is easier to handle, ship and store making it far more user friendly and can help reduce costs.

FSA approved

Tri-Pack packaging and our warehouse and factory have been approved by the Food Standards Agency for being suitable for use within the food sectors.

Patented Technology

Using our own unique tooling we seal the fluted edges of our packaging, this creates a strong barrier which becomes imperishable to dirt, dust, water and oils.

Eco Friendly

Polypropylene is made up purely of carbon and hydrogen and is manufactured without any dangerous emissions, therefore, has zero effect on the environment.

The truth about plastic

Polypropylene also known as polypropene is a thermoplastic polymer.

Polypropylene is the most versatile polymers available, which means it is suitable for multiple applications. Polypropylene has similar properties to polyethene and polybutene but it is much stronger and heat resistant making it perfect for sturdy environmentally friendly packaging. Adding antistatic additives means that polypropylene surfaces can resist dust and dirt, therefore making it versatile for the chilled, fresh and frozen food industries as well as being safe and certified for the pharmaceuticals sector.

Ecosystem friendly

100% Recyclable Packaging

This form of plastic packaging does not end up in seas and oceans affecting the ecosystems and damaging animal habitats. Because it is 100% recyclable. Once the product has been used, it can be used time and time again, through a relatively straightforward and environmentally friendly method or granulation and reprocessing.

In extreme cases, if the packaging is disposed of incorrectly, it will eventually biodegrade. In fact, it is 2,000 quicker for polypropylene to biodegrade than your standard plastic bottle or 400 times quicker than a single carrier bag.
