Sustainability has been gaining traction and this concept is firmly rooted in different industries that are trying to make a difference. From the beauty to the pharmaceutical industry and even the logistics industry, different businesses are finding ways to reduce the global emission of greenhouse gasses. For supply chain logistics, sustainability can be achieved through a sustainable warehouse that implements different strategies and techniques designed to minimise the production of waste and energy consumption to lower its carbon footprint.
There are numerous benefits of sustainable practices in various warehousing services that will make your investments in going green worthwhile in the long run. Some of them include:
- Reduce your warehouse utilities expenses
- Reduce your environmental impact
- Appeal to your eco-conscious customers
At Kyndle, our passion for sustainability is highlighted through one of our warehousing services which includes biodegradable and recyclable packaging. In an ideal world, where packaging may be rendered unnecessary, we try our best to avoid the usage of single-use plastics with our environmentally friendly packaging materials, helping our company achieve its environmental goals. Our green packages are:
1. Poly Mailers
Poly mailers are polyethene mailing envelopes made out of cornstarch and commonly used by businesses to ship apparel, plastics, shoes and other non-perishables. At Kyndle, our poly mailers are lightweight, moisture-resistant, come in a wide variety of sizes and most importantly, are biodegradable.
Since these water-proof bags come in different sizes, they are easily stored away in our warehouse and compared to cardboard boxes. We do not have to worry about temperature or moisture in our facility. Furthermore, as poly mailers use fewer materials to produce, there is less packaging waste.
2. Kraft Wrapping Paper
As more and more of our customers are becoming environmentally conscious, we try to meet their demand by wrapping our products in kraft wrapping paper instead of bubble wraps. For those who might not know, kraft paper is a thick brown paper made of wood pulp and is stronger than most papers. It is often used to wrap packaging or to fill additional space inside of a box to protect a product during delivery.
Recyclable, biodegradable and made from organic material, kraft papers serve as a green replacement for bubble wrap and can be recycled up to seven times.
Fun Fact 1: The word kraft means strength in German and just like the word, kraft paper is both durable and strong!
3. Recyclable Corrugated Cardboard Boxes
Our corrugated cardboard boxes allow for eco-friendly packaging, made of recyclable materials like used cartons and other sources of second-hand paper. For bigger items, corrugated cardboard boxes are ideal due to their size, durability and efficiency.
Recyclable and biodegradable, corrugated cardboard boxes can be recycled and reused up to 7 times before the fibres become too weak to use. This minimises waste generation, meaning fewer items are sent to landfills, and even if these boxes end up in landfills, their biodegradable characteristic enables them to be broken down quickly.
Fun Fact 2: At Kyndle, we offer add-on discounts on our products to encourage the full usage of corrugated cardboard boxes.
As our business like e-commerce warehouse fulfilment continues to grow, we at Kyndle try our best to reduce our carbon footprint through sustainable strategies and techniques. With a step in the right direction, we aim to change our focus to make this world a better place.
Sustainable packaging is just one of the services offered under our Warehousing and Fulfilment services. To know more about our warehousing services in Singapore, contact Kyndle today to speak to our experts!
