We’ve got new corrugate packaging!Becky Shipps
If you’ve ordered a human or canine product from us recently, you might have noticed that our packaging has changed from plastic to corrugate. Draper Therapies tries to be as eco-friendly as possible, so making the switch to corrugate was a no-brainer. Here’s why we love our new packaging so much:
It’s recyclable. Corrugate contains a high percentage of recycled paper, like cartons or newspaper. It can be recycled again after it has been been used. Also, most corrugated packaging is made without dyes or bleaches, meaning it can be disposed of more sustainably than other types of material that contain chemical contaminants.
It’s renewable. Corrugated packaging is made from paper pulp from timber from fast-growing pine trees, but can also be created from woodchips and leftover materials from a range of paper-making processes. Most corrugated packaging is made up of around 70% to 100% of recycled material. Suppliers that make large amounts of corrugated packaging usually harvest materials from managed, sustainable forests. They replace harvested trees with seedlings to begin the process again.
It’s minimal. Less packaging means less weight which means lower shipping costs. We do our best to ship our products as cost-efficiently as possible, so anytime we can remove weight and bulk from a shipment and save the customer money, we’re thrilled!
