Importance of Recycling and Reusing Packaging

Packaging is a necessary part of everyday life and economy, whether from the parcels you’ve received from an online order or boxes that we use before moving. It protects products and belongings. It preserves them and prevents damage during transit. However, the packaging is often viewed as waste, and in most cases, it usually ends up this way too.

In today’s society, helping the environment in every way should be our top priority. Recycling and reusing materials like plastic, cardboard, and bubble wrap, to mention a few are things that we should all be doing naturally. At Stoke Removals, we offer packaging services that are eco-friendly, sustainable and recyclable without compromising performance or cost.

We want to educate everyone on the benefits of reusing and recycling materials for parcel shipments, packaging and other uses.

Benefits of reusing materials for shipping and packing

Various materials like paper, cardboard, polystyrene and bubble wraps are just a few that are prevalent in parcels and packages. All of these are reusable and just as valuable as a new packaging product by simply saving these materials and keeping them stored. Doing so will cut down on your weekly waste, shipping cost and reduce rubbish at local landfill sites. It’s a win-win situation when you’re helping the environment and saving your hard-earned money.

Reduce worldwide plastic waste circulation

If you’re a regular online shopper or seller, sending and receiving parcels is a typical routine for you, and it’s essential to be aware of different materials used in your packaging. Bubble wraps, polystyrene and packing nuts are all made from plastic – something that we should make an effort to cut down on just by maximising its usage and creating a healthy habit of reusing them.

It’s a common misconception that you need to use a brand new cardboard box or parcels when shipping items. As long as the package is in a decent, durable condition, it’s completely fine to reuse all sorts of packaging. It’s also acceptable even if the box has existing logos and brandings, as long as you cover any barcodes or previous address information that can confuse the delivery team.
