We ship our products utilizing sealed air bags as our packaging material to protect your order based on our experience and analysis of packaging options. Our evaluation considered both customer and environmental issues. While no packaging material is totally environmentally benign, we feel we have chosen the best option available today. Occasionally, we may use a small amount of bio-degradable peanuts, recycled paper or left over polystyrene peanuts sent to us from inventory deliveries.
Packaging peanuts create a mess when opening packages and is a problem for disposal to the customer. Bio-degradable peanuts do not perform well to protect packages as they compress and settle easily. Packaging peanuts require substantial storage space and are inefficient to transport due to their volume.Crumpled recycled paper material will also compress and settle in a box during shipment and adds unnecessary weight to the package.
Sealed air bags as packaging material is a more environmentally sound method to ship products and has many customer benefits. The material for the air bags are shipped to us in large rolls. A machine in our warehouse inflates the material and seals it to create air bags of various sizes and firmness.
- Air bags weigh less than other packaging materials and reduces the transportation fuel required to ship the order.
- Air bags do not settle in the shipping carton while in transit like other packaging materials and minimizes the potential for product damage during transit. This prevents further customer and environmental impacts of sending damaged product back for replacement, disposing/repairing the damaged product and inconvenience to the customer.
- Air bags create less waste. They can be deflated and flattened.
- Air bags are made of recyclable material and can be a part of your recycling program
