Sealed Air today introduced the PakNatural® Biodegradable Cushion Bag, a protective packaging solution for cushioning and void-fill shipping applications, which meets sustainability requirements for performance, cost competitiveness and environmental responsibility.
The new packaging innovation encases Sealed Air’s PakNatural®loose fill solution within a protective film also made from certified biodegradable, compostable and renewable material. The resulting bags retain the superior non-abrasive properties of Sealed Air’s PakNatural® loose fill solution, making them ideal for protecting electronics, books, glass items and collectibles.
“This solution truly is unique to our market,” said Mark Bourke, Sealed Air sales development manager for PakNatural®. “All elements of the PakNatural®Biodegradable Cushion Bag are renewable, biodegradable and compostable. It’s another great example of Sealed Air’s SmartLife™ commitment to sustainability through efficient packaging solutions that provide product protection while reducing costs and environmental impact through the entire supply chain.”
Available in three different sizes, the PakNatural® Biodegradable Cushion Bag is an attractive consideration for operations that desire biodegradable and compostable materials and that prefer self-contained packaging solutions over traditional loose-fill formats. No equipment is necessary with the new PakNatural® Biodegradable Cushion Bag, enabling customers to easily incorporate the solution directly into centralized or decentralized packaging operations.
Additionally, the PakNatural®Biodegradable Cushion Bag is certified as biodegradable and compostable by three independent international organizations – The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), the German certification organization DIN CERTCO and the Belgium-based independent testing and research organization Vincotte.
