Eco Friendly Packaging – Inflatable Air Bags For Void Fill and CushioningPlastic packaging products often attract a lot of criticism, yet it’s not always fair. Inflatable air bags, a cushioning and void fill packaging system developed over the past decade, can be a just to illustrate. A polyethylene material, inflatables are really simple to recycle, which is a good start. In addition, the bags are made of very thin gauge film. As a result, inflatables add less than possible on the waste or recycling stream as they are used.Inflatable bagging Biodegradable Cups systems automatically or semi-automatically insert air into plastic bags which can be dispensed from your roll. The filled bags continue across the packaging line still about the roll – resembling links of sausage – and are then dispensed and stop automatically or semi-automatically to the shipping case. The systems are popular in high volume, moderate to broadband pick and pack distribution center operations.The inflatable bags offer several environmental advantages. First, the main cushioning and void fill component of scalping systems is air – certainly a renewable resource. Second, being primarily air, packaging with inflatables reduces shipping weight – often dramatically – and reduces carbon footprints accordingly. Third, the high amount of cushioning protection the bags provide allows shippers to cut back shipping case size, further decreasing the volume of packaging materials consumed and injected to the waste or recycling stream.Paper void fill and cushioning materials, while produced from renewable resources, are comparatively heavy and bulky. This means greater shipping weight and packaging mass. In addition, paper may provide inferior cushioning, necessitating larger shipping cases. Furthermore, if cushioning performance suffers, damage may increase, leading to returns and replacement shipments which consume further packaging resources and fuel consumption.This analysis isn’t supposed to assert that inflatables are invariably the right environmental choice, or that paper packaging materials will always be an unacceptable one. All packaging applications differ in terms of product containment needs, environmental exposure, and shipping and handling conditions. All these factors must be weighed carefully to look for the optimum environmental packaging for use.
