The most eco-efficient packaging solution
There is a real struggle in finding the ultimate eco-friendly packaging solution. From selecting the right material, which is sustainable; yet still fit for purpose. To the manufacturing process, warehousing, shipping and then waste.
Reusable packaging is certainly one of the three methods used to minimise the environmental impact of your packaging.
Reusable packaging – which is often also referred to as reusable transport items (RTI) – is just as the name suggests. A reusable container or box that will be used time and time again over multiple journeys.Enquire about yours today
The environmental benefits
Plastic has been proven (by research from the BBC) to be one of the more environmentally friendly methods of packaging. This is due to its low carbon emissions during the manufacturing process and energy consumption levels during recycling. Which are significantly lower than many other packaging materials.
Also, plastic packaging can be reusable. The benefits of multi-trip versus single-trip packaging are tremendous. Involving everything from a reduced carbon footprint, reduced labour costs in sorting recycling, to reduced storage costs and less spoilage of the product.
Reusable packaging, by its very nature is one of the most robust packaging options yet the energy used to produce this form of packaging is minimal.

Polypropylene has similar properties to polyethylene and polybutene but it is much stronger and heat resistant making it perfect for sturdy and safe packaging.
Polypropylene will biodegrade 2,000 quicker than your standard plastic bottle and 400 times quicker than a single carrier bag.
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.
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.

Polypropylene is made up purely of carbon and hydrogen and is manufactured without any dangerous emissions, therefore, has zero effect on the environment.
How reusable packaging works
The material of the reusable packaging is key to its success. It needs to be durable and ideally waterproof, with the view for the packaging to the cleaned between uses. Especially if contaminated with soil, dirt, dust or debris. Reusable packaging should not be confused with 'opportunistic re-use' where a product which is intended for single-use is re-purposed. There should be a clear difference in the packagings intended use, whether this be single or multi-use packaging.Our commitment to our planet
