Not only did national lockdown change consumer behaviour habits with customers forced to buy products online which saw record e-commerce sale figures, the population were also forced to spend the time doing homework outs following the closure of gyms and leisure centres, and to help pass the time…

According to statistics, half of the UK consumers bought homework products during the pandemic with athleisure orders rising by 84% since the start of the pandemic. To further this, online fashion giant Boohoo also revealed a 41% increase in lounge and sportswear sales during the pandemic.

With consumers still choosing to workout from home, gym wear sales continue to increase, with a long-standing customer of Elliott Packaging needing to increase orders to keep with high demand.

As a national fitness brand, this particular business needed to increase their plastic mailing bags order, but also wanted to reduce their carbon footprint, which is why they turned to Elliott Packaging. Choosing co-extruded polythene mailing bags, not only are these particular types of plastic mailing bags perfect to send out their own branded gym wear to customers, these poly mailing bags are also fully recyclable so tick every box.

“Elliott Packaging offered an extremely competitive price alongside a stress free customer service from the point of order through to delivery. The quality of the poly mailing bags products are exactly as I’d hoped so I would 100% recommend this company.”
