A pharmaceutical company was looking for a green solution to replace their current foam-in-place polyurethane void-fill. When first hearing about air pillows for a solution, they were skeptical. Traditional air pillows are not typically recognized as being environmental or biodegradable.
- Needing an environmentally friendly packaging solution
- Needing to improve overall sustainability
- Biodegrades in Anaerobic/Aerobic Environments
- Diverts Less Plastic to the Waste Stream
- Uses 50% less resin
- 100% Recyclable
- Provides Greater Puncture Resistance
With a large number of shipments going out on a daily basis, the pharmaceutical company was extremely thankful for the earth-friendly solution to their current polyurethane foam-in-place void-fill packaging. They were hoping for a greener solution to void-fill that would be tough yet flexible. They were hoping it would have a long shelf-life, be cost effective, and be a green solution.
Realizing that they had high expectations for their packaging solution, they contacted the only company they knew that streamlines packaging processes and offers sustainable products. IPS Packaging! The pharmaceutical company called IPS and asked to speak with a trained packaging specialist.
The IPS packaging specialist decided to try something new and offer the pharmaceutical company an air pillow that is in the recyclable category 4. Providing a renewable, inflatable, void-fill packaging solution was something the company had not thought of before. With the same quality performance of other leading brands, the new biodegradable packaging solution provided all of the green benefits needed by the pharmaceutical company.
