Goodbye Silica Gel Sachets – We are going Biodegradable!
We all know them, those little gel packets that turn up in our purchases, particularly in paper products like branded and customised rigid lid-and-base boxes.
Paper is a sponge and absolutely loves lapping up any moisture in the air, creating the perfect breeding ground for mould. So when our factories make up branded lid-and-base boxes for our customers they will drop a little silica gel sachet inside each one to keep them dry and in perfect condition.
The only problem is – these silica gel sachets are SO bad for the environment, and it pains us to use them.
However, we now have a solution!
New on the market is a biodegradable, plastic-free sachet made of non-toxic bentonite clay wrapped in biodegradable FSC-certified Kraft paper and we are now supplying these at your request (and with a small additional cost) which helps to reduce both your carbon footprint as well as ours.
Amazingly, the bentonite clay remains dry at all times, even at full water vapour capacity. It is a 100% natural product, DMF free and is exempt from REACH registration.
These punchy little clay sachets tick lots of boxes:
