B2B Industrial Packaging champions green packaging supplies

Addison, IL, May 26, 2015 — B2B Industrial Packaging, one of the fastest growing stretch film, steel strapping, and strapping tool repair providers in the U.S., is championing environmentally friendly industrial packaging materials and tools.

Vice President Pat Yonkus said, "The days of trash containers overflowing with discarded packaging materials are over. More and more of the industrial packaging supplies we sell are environmentally efficient-meaning our clients can accomplish their packaging objectives with less product. Some items, like woven strap, can be used again. And most everything we sell can at least be recycled."

Two environmentally friendly options that almost no one, but B2B Industrial Packaging, offers are packaging tool repair and refurbished tools. In addition to the cost savings, repairing equipment keeps-sometimes very large---pieces of machinery out of landfills and supports B2B Industrial Packaging's commitment to the environment.

A third of municipal waste is now recycled, but the percentage for durable goods, like tools, is only 17 percent. A big part of the problem is the lack of recycling facilities for products like these. "Businesses should buy tools with a long-term mindset," Yonkus said. "As with everything you want to keep for a long time, buy the best quality. Generally speaking the better the quality the longer it will be in service and the more sense it makes to repair, rather than replace." Three relatively new eco-friendly packaging options include:

  • Sealed Air's mushroom packaging; which is made of mycelium (the root-like structure of mushrooms) and agricultural waste. The material is completely biodegradable and compostable.
  • Dri-Rite's all natural absorbents; which are composed of a mineral blend (montmorillonite and dolomite) with no chemical additives. The material is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-hazardous for safe, long-term storage and use.
  • Coreless's Hollowrap; which is stretch film minus the cardboard/plastic core. Although most cores can be recycled, eliminating the material in the first place is always more environmentally advantageous.

Other environmentally friendly packaging supplies that come in green versions include: cardboard boxes, edge board, packaging peanuts, jute/sisal twine, molded pulp packaging, and stretch film.

Reduce, reuse, recycle--the three Rs are ranked in descending order of environmental benefit: reduce consumption (don't buy something that needs to be disposed of in the first place); reuse (donate or buy used); and-if all else fails-recycle (almost nothing can be recycled in its entirety).
