Plastic Formed Returnable Packaging

The Benefits of Reconditioned Plastic Pallets

Leading the Way with Recycled Solutions

Are you looking to recycle and reuse your way to a greener supply chain? At Plastic Mouldings Northern, we are at the forefront of providing recycled and reconditioned plastic packaging solutions. These solutions are becoming increasingly crucial across various sectors as businesses seek sustainable methods to transport products using boxes, trays, pallets, and containers.

The Advantages of Returnable Packaging

Returnable packaging solutions offer numerous benefits that have made them indispensable in logistics. Known for their convenience, durability, and cost-effectiveness, these solutions also address environmental concerns associated with single-use plastics. There is a growing demand across the board for reusable plastic packaging solutions as companies strive to meet their environmental sustainability goals.

Growth in Demand for Reusable Transport Packaging

According to the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA), demand for reusable transport packaging (RTP) increased by 66% in 2020 and was expected to rise by 88% in 2021, with predictions for continued growth in subsequent years. This surge highlights the shifting priorities towards more sustainable practices in logistics.

UK’s Evolving Plastic Recycling Landscape

The landscape of plastic recycling in the UK is evolving rapidly, paving the way for a more sustainable future. At Plastic Mouldings Northern, our ethos of ‘Reuse, Recycle, Repair’ aligns with the broader industry shift towards a circular economy, where plastics are re-used or recycled rather than discarded. With around five billion pallets in use worldwide, switching to reconditioned plastic pallets—which have a significantly lower carbon footprint than other materials—presents a more environmentally friendly option.
