What is the future of shrink wrap packaging?
Updated: Aug 29
Remember... not all plastics are created equal!
In fact in terms of manufacture and recycling, the energy use and environmental cost of shrink wrap is less than that of cardboard. From a logistical point of view, the use of shrink wrap has many clear benefits. It’s a cost-effective way of stabilising multi-packaged items and protects them from debris and moisture during transport. It also provides a measure of protection against unwanted tampering with products, helping to preserve the safety of foods, medicines and toiletries.
Alloyed to the clear, cost-effective benefits in terms of logistics, transport, security and product integrity, it’s clear that shrink wrap will remain popular among manufacturers.
