WITH THE AIR CUSHIONS MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIAL, COMPANIES ACT ECONOMICALLY AND SUSTAINABLY

In April 2022, the government implemented the Plastic Packaging Tax in the UK. From now on, companies will have to pay a fee of £200 per metric tonne on plastic packaging that they bring into the market. The tax affects all UK producers as well as companies that import their plastic packaging into the UK. Plastic packaging with a recycled content of at least 30 percent is exempt from the tax. The aim of the tax is to strengthen the circular economy and promote the use of recycled and recyclable plastic.

Storopack has offered cushions made from recycled plastic in its portfolio for several years. There is a choice of AIRplus® Recycle with a minimum of 50% recycled content or AIRplus® 100% Recycled. Both air pillows offer the same excellent protective properties as those made from conventional material.
By using air cushions made from recycled plastic, companies can not only save on plastic tax, but also improve their own carbon footprint through reduced water consumption and energy demand during production of the air cushions.
