Locate a clean and flat surface to package your goods for shipping. Ensure that you have ample space for the merchandise you want to ship off and your packaging materials like the Bubble Wrap rolls. Also, it is wise to ensure that you also have sufficient space to tape, fold, and secure your item without always moving countertop decorations or desk wear.
Lay Out Bubble Wrap so that its Bubble Side is Facing UpwardsThe Air Pillow typically comes in strings with appropriate numbers or air chambers or pillows. The aim is to secure an item in place and prevent it from shifting within or hitting the sides of the box during shipment or handling. The Air Pillow packaging can be used for many different products or items. The only precaution you must take is to use enough air pillows to prevent braces. However, Air Pillows do need additional packaging equipment, i.e., a maintenance-free mistral machine. This is a compact, efficient, reliable, and user-friendly solution you can easily integrate into your existing packaging system.
In a study published this week in Environmental Science and Technology, researchers put supposedly eco-friendly bags made from various organic and plastic materials and sourced from U.K. stores to the test. After three years buried in garden soil, submerged in ocean water, exposed to open light and air or stashed in a laboratory, none of the bags broke down completely in all the environments.
In fact, the biodegradable bags that had been left underwater in a marina could still hold a full load of groceries.
“What is the role of some of these really innovative and novel polymers?” asked Richard Thompson, a marine biologist from the University of Plymouth and the study’s senior author. A polymer is a repeating chain of chemicals that makes up a plastic’s structure, whether biodegradable or synthetic.Oh yes! You heard it right. And many of you must be scratching your head thinking how? So, here it is. Because these products are made from natural elements like sugarcane pulp, they do not release any poisonous chemicals into the soil, unlike plastic. In fact, they can get decomposed naturally, resulting in nurturing the soil.
2. Renewable Base Material
Biodegradable plates are made from sustainable and renewable plants, such as corn, potato starch, sugarcane pulp, and various vegetable oils. Also, they are manufactured using eco-friendly sustainable practices that do not have negative effects on the planet. The final product is toxic-free.
3. Reduce Ocean Pollution
Whales losing their lives due to plastic ingestion is no breaking news to us. This grave reality actually gives us a glimpse of in what horrendous ways we are destroying this planet by dumping our plastic waste into the ocean and killing these beautiful and innocent aquatic animals.
Every year, the ocean is polluted with 18 billion pounds of every type of single-use plastics. Plastic has become the main concern behind the destruction of our irreplaceable eco-systems, coral reefs, and marine life. The marine animals and birds consume plastic bits floating in the ocean, mistakenly. Using biodegradable tableware will reduce ocean pollution.
