Over the last few months, reusable packaging has become a real buzzword within the eco-friendly packaging industry, with many high street retailers pledging a variety of changes to make a conscious effort to improve the environment.
Major supermarket chains introduce reusable packaging schemes
With Iceland committing to becoming plastic free by 2023, Tesco have also introduced and outlined their plans by introducing their reusable packaging return scheme.
Working in partnership with Loop, the reusable packaging scheme will see customers refunded via a deposit return system if they bring the material back on any of the tesco own label brands that are eligible. Launched in September 2021, customers in ten large Tesco stores in the east of England will be able to buy products in reusable packaging, manufactured by Loop, that can be returned to store when finished so it can be cleaned, refilled and used again.
Elliott Packaging welcome high street retailer brand
With the UK setting a target of slashing emissions by 78% by 2035, both local and national brands are looking at innovative ways on how they play their part, with Elliott Packaging delighted to welcome a well known high street retailer who have just received their first paper mailing bags order.
We placed our first order with Elliott Packaging just under 4 weeks ago and today we received our paper mailing bags, and we’re absolutely delighted with the ‘finished article’!
From first contact the staff at Elliott Packaging were absolutely wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, samples of the sort of bags that we had in mind were delivered the very next day and from then on their service was an absolute joy. The other important thing to mention is that they are very competitive too, we obtained two other quotes for our requirements but Elliott’s were by far the most competitive.
The environment is very important to our business ethos so we decided on paper mailing bags as these are completely recyclable and compostable, and fall in line with reusable packaging, so we could not be happier with the end result, the printing is first class, this too is very important to our corporate image.
So we would highly recommend this extremely capable and reliable company to anyone that is looking for environmentally friendly packaging, they are simply the best! – High Street Retailer Brand – February 2022
Thinking of making a change to reusable packaging?
If you’re still on the fence about making the switch, moving to reusable packaging such as our paper mailer bags offer a number of environmentally friendly benefits which include;
- Minimises packaging and materials being sent to landfill
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions and overall energy consumption
- Less requirements for raw material in new packaging manufacturing
- Waste and carbon reduction from less (single use) packaging production
- Can be reused and recycled when at the end of life
