Unisource Launches Protective Packaging Line
Norcross, Georgia-based Unisource Worldwide has launched an extensive new line of protective packaging products under the Unisource brand.
The line includes a wide range of lightweight, flexible and cost-effective protective packaging solutions including: bubble cushioning, polyethylene foam and poly-bubble mailers. Several of the products include recycled content that will appeal to businesses looking for environmental benefits coupled with performance.
“In addition to traditional protective packaging products, we wanted to offer our customers pre- and post-consumer recycled content alternatives,” said Steve Mohr, director of marketing – packaging. “We also wanted to ensure that these products could meet or exceed performance requirements.”
The Unisource brand Bubble Cushioning line includes a virgin-grade option as well as two recycled content alternatives with up to 40 or 25 percent pre- and/or post-consumer waste, respectively. Similarly, Unisource’s Polyethylene Foam product offering is available in virgin grade with up to 35 percent post-industrial resin.
For customers requiring a single-material alternative, Unisource’s Poly Bubble Mailer product line is made entirely from polyethylene. Unlike other mailers, both the inner and outer layers are made from the same material that facilitates recycling without the need for material separation.
“The new Unisource-branded protective packaging line further advances the company’s goal of providing the marketplace with packaging solutions that deliver the best possible protection and overall value, as well as reducing dependence on raw virgin materials,” Mohr said.
