Recyclable - small.gifEco-Friendly Packing Materials for a House Move

 

At Mid Wales Storage we are working towards reducing our impact on the environment by stocking eco-friendly packing materials which are both recyclable and biodegradable.

We are choosing alternative products to plastics - with plastic waste continuing to accumulate in landfills and our oceans and endangering wildlife, tackling plastic pollution has never been so pressing.

We have replaced our standard plastic b/wrap with Oxo-Biodegradable b/wrap which is a more environmentally friendly form of cushion packaging and is 100% recyclable. 

The b/wrap is treated with raw materials which do not contain heavy metals and when the bubble film is exposed to the combined effects of sunlight, stress and microbes, the end result is a product which is digested harmlessly by micro-organisms and turned into basic elements of carbon dioxide, water and biomass – it is safe to deposit in landfill sites and will naturally degrade over a period of time.

As an alternative to the biodegradable plastic b/wrap – we also stock Indented Kraft Paper which has ridges and bumps across it adding texture and a small amount of cushioning – the paper is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable with biodegradable materials.

Self-adhesive Paper Tape is an eco friendly alternative to PVC tape and can be easily torn by hand, has high elasticity, high heat and cold tolerance and very high tear resistance once applied – it is made with a natural rubber adhesive and is fully biodegradable and compostable.

We also stock a wide range of other products for moving home, office use and shipping all of which are recyclable including Mattress Covers, Sofa Covers, Armchair Covers and high-quality double walled Removal Boxes in a range of sizes.

The strength of a removal box is according to the grade of cardboard used and the flute within the layers of cardboard – our boxes are extra strong perfect for packing your home contents and will stack up safely one on top of the other both in storage and in the removal vans during transportation.

It is not completely possible to move away totally from certain types of plastic packaging, however, we make sure the products we stock are recyclable and will eventually replace as new plastic free alternatives come to market.
