Put The Green Foot Forward

There is a common misconception that plastic crates are worse for the environment than cardboard, even though they are much more reusable and also recyclable. Plastic crates are stronger and consequently more efficient than cardboard and outlast their flimsy counterparts by at least 50 times. They can withstand harsh weather and constant handling. This means that they can be re-used over and over again, which not only causes less landfill and less deforestation, but also reduces disposal costs for you or your company.  Furthermore plastic can be recycled for a much wider range of uses in comparison to cardboard, from medicine to food to industrial purposes.
There are some negative plastics such as PVC which can be detrimental to your health and the environment. However our plastic crates are made out of the best PVC alternative, polypropylene. Our PP plastic crates are classified under Returnable Transit Packaging Solutions. This means that by hiring plastic crates businesses can take advantage of significant cost savings whilst simultaneously adhering to legislative requirements such as the Packaging Waste Directive.
