We love New Zealand and we are working hard to play our part in creating a circular, sustainable economy. We've got new paper tapes, eco-friendly WrapPak and biodegradable courier packs. Just to name a few.
We have an entire range of sustainable products available and are committed to extending this range, to provide innovative sustainable packaging solutions for our customers.
Responsible product sourcing. We look for and use suppliers with sustainable certifications.
We are working towards a paperless office. Records are kept electronically, and office paper usage is kept to a minimum.
In conjunction with local, national and other agencies, we promote and raise awareness of good environmental management policies and practices amond staff and other stakeholders.

Our entire pallet wrap range can be recycled, with many of the products being manufactured from recycled material.
We are actively looking at ways to reduce the volume of resources we use and the amount of materials that end up in our landfills. One initiative is working closely with Future Post, who are converting our waste plastics into fence posts. The sustainable choice logo was developed by Primepac to help customers identify sustainable products to align with their own environmental policy. Any products with this emblem are either:
We also have started a Green Sticker Project to help educate our customers on how to correctly dispose of our products. View it here

Cellophane is a great example of a bioplastic that New Zealanders have been using for years, with many being unaware of the environmental benefits it presents.
In this blog we look at the composition of cellophane and why it’s an excellent eco choice for your business.
