With the increased focus on our environment, Sooner than Later is now offering clients a more green environmentally friendly polywrapping service. This alternative eco-friendly polywrap offered by Sooner than Later is designed to break down naturally after use so there is no need for it to be recycled. It is a starch based polywrap that has been certified as officially containing NO Genetically Modified Organisms and has been produced FREE from GMO materials. It is 100% biodegradeable and fully compostable within 10 days in the right environment yet it is strong and effective during use. It therefore provides you with a more green environmentally friendly solution to your packaging and mailing needs.
Our environmentally friendly polywrap uses biopolymers, consisting mainly of potato or corn starch which are fully sustainable materials which break down in a composting environment naturally into carbon, oxygen and hydrogen so it will not take up space in a landfill site. This material is designed to fully biodegrade in compost, soil, fresh or salt water when micro-organisms are present. If the temperature is increased biodegradation takes place even quicker helping the polywrap to simply return to nature.
Trinity College, Technological University Dublin and The Irish Pharmacy Union chose to use this new more environmentally polywrap for their recent postal mailings.
Being environmentally aware, Sooner than Later also promotes, develops and implements waste prevention, reduction, reusing and recycling on-site in a systematic and cost-effective manner in all areas of its business. This includes continuous recycling of our paper, cardboard, plastic, pallets and toner cartridges as well as using a fleet of delivery vans that meet the strict Euro 6 emission standards. Sooner than Later sources their paper from reputable suppliers and endeavours to only use PEFC (Promoting Sustainable Forest Management) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper. These accreditations aim to achieve the highest standards of forest management which are environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable.
