ABL's Guide To Eco-Friendly Packaging Alternatives

More and more customers are choosing to order and fulfill their requirements online from the safety of their own home or office.

To attract more of these customers, retailers are choosing to play the sustainability card in hope to appeal to a wider audience.

This includes switching from regular cardboard and plastic packaging materials to a more eco-friendly alternative. 

ABL has expanded our packaging range to include a variety of eco-friendly products to help more retailers become more sustainable. 

New Tape Technologies Eliminating Plastics!

Tesa 4713 High Performance Paper Carton Sealing Tape

Combined with a silicone free release coat and a synthetic rubber adhesive system (without solvents) this tape provides excellent sealing properties, especially on cardboard.
Tesa 4713 provides a high strength, durable seal due to the product having combined high holding power and good tensile strength.
Tesa 4713 high performance paper carton sealing tape can be used both manually OR with a dispenser and can be used to seal light and medium weight cartons. 
  • Tough Paper backing, 99% recycled content
  • Excellent adhesive, great for cardboard
  • Hand Tearable
  • No solvents - state of the art synthetic rubber adhesive

Water Activate Gummed Paper Tape

Water Activated tapes combine a reinforced paper backing with material gum to provide incredibly durable, strong and environmentally friendly tape. 
  • Tough Paper backing, 99% recycled content
  • Excellent adhesive, great for cardboard
  • Hand Tearable
  • No solvents - state of the art synthetic rubber adhesive
  • Tough Paper backing, 99% recycled content
  • Excellent adhesive, great for cardboard
  • Hand Tearable
  • No solvents - state of the art synthetic rubber adhesive
  • Water Activated (gummed) Paper Tape (WAT) is cheaper than true tamper evident tapes BUT offers amazing pilfer proof properties.
    When using this gummed paper tape with electronic dispensing systems, it can work out to be cheaper in use than plastic tape products. 
    WAT can stick in all environment conditions and will keep your packaging professional and clean. 
    • Eliminates time wasting manual dispensing
    • Saves on labour costs - time reducing automatic dispensing
    • Reinforced tape makes cartons very strong
    • Tough tape reduces pilferage
    • Superb adhesive eliminates tape 'lifting' in humid conditions
    Please note gummed tapes are not suitable for use with plastics. 

    New EcoPure Additive

    EcoPure Bubblewrap

    What is Ecopure?
    EcoPure® is an organic additive that causes plastic to biodegrade* through a series of chemical and biological processes in a landfill disposal environment.
    There are approximately 250 million tons of trash produced in the United States annually. In response to this problem, Bio-Tec Environmental developed EcoPure®, an organic additive designed to enhance the speed of plastic decomposition in landfills. EcoPure® is a great option for businesses and manufacturers to use in their plastics because it:
    • Maintains the Strength of the Plastic: EcoPure® plastic additives are designed to start the plastic biodegradation process* only after reacting with microbes found in landfills. That means EcoPure® treated plastics are just as strong as non-treated plastic. The only difference is that the material will biodegrade* in a landfill much quicker than untreated plastics.
    • Is Thoroughly Tested and Proven: EcoPure® additives are tested using the ASTM D5511 test method and proven to biodegrade* plastic at a highly accelerated rate.
    • Is Highly Versatile: EcoPure® can be used in a variety of plastic applications. From disposable single use products to custom engineered durable goods, we have an additive that will work specifically for your plastic products. We also offer custom engineering to meet the unique needs of your plastic product or application if needed.
    * Biodegradation rates of EcoPure-treated plastic materials measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method. Tests are generally conducted using 20% to 30% solids content; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically-active landfills according to the type of plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.
    • Unlimited shelf life, are completely non toxic & are safe to use in food contact applications. 
    • Recyclable 

    Use New Technology 'Thin' Films To Reduce Waste Volumes

    Thin Palletwrap - Maxstretch Xtreme

    Sadly there are few practical alternatives here. For example eco-friendly solutions like corrugated cardboard as an alternative are expensive and fail in wet weather.
    Recently effort has focused on reducing the volume of plastic waste by the development of strengthening additives that make films strong at light thicknesses.
    e.g. Maxstretch Xtreme is only 15um thick but is as strong as 23um conventional film if used correctly. Cheaper and less waste.

    • Available in clear and black
    • New technology means great strength at thin film gauge
    • Good clarity for scanning
    • Economical yet good puncture resistance
    • Lightweight means easy to use, less tiring
    • Less wasted film helps environment as landfill is reduced

    New Technology Protective Packaging


    This biodegradable, compostable & recyclable paper is an excellent (eco-friendly) alternative to bubble wrap.
    It's honeycomb structure means easy wrapping & great presentation whilst cushioning/protecting your products during transport.
    This system is highly economical & cheaper than most other systems on the market. The hexagonal cells eliminates the need for taping, which in turn eliminates extra cost & waste.
    • Available in brown and white
    • All paper, recyclable, biodegradable & compostable
    • Honeycomb structure that helps to ‘lock’ product in place
    • Easy wrapping and great presentation
    • Most economical paper void fill product
