IPS Packaging Commits to Using Green Bubble

Astro Green Bubble PackagingBeginning January 2010, IPS Packaging’s stock of 3/16″, 5/16″ and 1/2″ bubble packaging will all be Astro-Bubble products. The bubble packaging will boast an IPS Packaging private label.

IPS Packaging is committed to providing our customers with environmentally responsible alternative products. It is believed that recycling post-consumer waste is a crucial step in achieving customer’s sustainability goals and we have worked hard toward securing supply sources.

Our success in negotiating away the standard up-charge for this bubble product results in a two-fisted advantage for our salespeople: a competitively priced eco-friendly bubble that is not offered by any other manufacturer.

Lightweight, clean and flexible, this new Pregis air cushioning provides high-performance protection as a bubble wrap solution.

A Little About the Product:

Astro-Bubble Green is the first ever air cushioning bubble to contain up to 40% recycled content, but no less than 30%, depending on the post and pre-consumer waste material supply. This green packaging has been engineered to incorporate high levels of post-consumer recycled content without sacrificing the products’ integrity, such as air retention within the bubble.

The air cushioning bubble packaging is made from up to 20% post-consumer recycled content and up to 20% industrial scrap. Additionally, an organic green dye is used to create a transparent visual sign that the product is an environmentally conscious alternative.

Astro-Bubble Green air cushioning offers a smart, lightweight, clean and flexible option to other protective packaging alternatives. Market segments targeted by the product line include: aerospace, agriculture/produce, automotive, doors/building material, electronics/appliances, food, fulfillment/mail order, furniture, glass/china, industrial equipment/supplies, jewelry, medical, military/government, moving and storage, pharmaceuticals, publishing, retail and transportation.
