Sealed Air designs sustainable box liners for Sun Basket

Protective e-commerce packaging materials supplier Sealed Air has designed sustainable box liners for US-based meal kit delivery service company Sun Basket.

Protective e-commerce packaging materials supplier Sealed Air has designed sustainable box liners for US-based meal kit delivery service company Sun Basket.

Sealed Air will offer its TempGuard solution, which is a curbside recyclable box liner that enables the meal kit delivery service firm to insulate its perishable products.

Made from recycled paper, the thermal insulation in TempGuard ensures contents are maintained at proper temperatures for one-day and two-day ground shipping.

“Sustainability is one of our core values, and one of the ways we approach that is by ensuring that all of our packaging is recyclable or compostable.”

The solution also contains padded material that cushions items during handling and transit.

Sealed Air strategy and business development vice-president Susan Bell said: “We are pleased to have a fully curbside recyclable solution in our portfolio that meets Sun Basket’s temperature assurance requirements.

“Because sustainability is a key business driver for our clients and online shoppers are requesting environmentally friendly packaging from retailers, Sealed Air is expanding R&D efforts not only on improving the recyclability of its existing packaging materials but also creating new bio-based packaging products derived from natural sources.”

The new product from Sealed Air enables Sun Basket to switch to a shipping box that is about 25% smaller than its original box, thereby reducing its carbon footprint.

Sun Basket strategic initiatives head Michael Golub said: “At Sun Basket, sustainability is one of our core values, and one of the ways we approach that is by ensuring that all of our packaging is recyclable or compostable.

“We are excited about this insulation because, among other things, it made the recycling process even easier for our customers while at the same time reducing the size of our box, for both a sustainability and customer experience win.”
