Botta Packaging has conceived a new innovative and sustainable packaging solution, the Eco-Envelopes, to substitute the currently used plastic air bubble bags with grocery home deliveries. During these unprecedented times in this global pandemic and higher use of single-use plastic, Eco-envelope serves as a more sustainable alternative.
This concept of a paper-lined padding interior was born to replace the useful but not so eco-friendly bubble wrap bags.
Eco-Envelopes consist of two layers, the inner layer corresponds to a bubble wrap protectiveness and is a cushioning material made of corrugated paper that can secure the same level of durability and rigidity as before for safer delivery of fragile items.
Eco-envelopes’ unique paper-based composition is circular by nature and provides a better alternative for pre-existing bubble wraps and the use of only paper not only makes these envelopes 100% paper recyclable but also reduces the hassle of separation of packaging individually for the consumers.
Given the climatic state of today’s world, Eco-Envelopes fit right into the market. In fact, they stand up to the rigor of the e-commerce channel, providing benefits such as breakage and safety advantages, easy handling and opening, space reduction thanks to its male/female corrugated paper structure, and therefore reduced freight costs and transports. From a commercial perspective, Eco-Envelopes have also been chosen by a reputable Italian supermarket chain, Esselunga, to substitute bubble wrap packaging for their online shopping deliveries, thus innovating the online deliveries realm.
On a societal level, the Eco-Envelope plays a role in the process of sustainable packaging evolution. Paper-based combined with its unique attributes, Eco-Envelopes show how the “reduce, reuse, recycle” goal can be realized. Standing as an innovative and eco-friendly packaging option, Eco-Envelopes help customers and businesses to achieve their commitments to sustainability and are a significant move in the battle of tackling plastic waste.
