Item # 1017, Environmentally Friendly Packaging

The leading trend in the packaging industry presently is making our products friendly to our environment. Unipaq is leading the way with these innovative products below.

Whether it is using sustainable materials, recycling or reuse objectives, or simply getting the same job done using less packaging, we have something for every project.



Introducing! Weatherproof & Recyclable Eco-Shield Corrugated Boxes!

Hexacomb is a smart environmental cushioning alternative to foam in many applications. It is 100% paper-based, less expensive than high-end foams, reusable and recyclable, and provides excellent protection. Our design team particularly likes the versatility of Hexacomb and all of the different packaging products that they can make from it.

Protective Corrugated Cushioning Designs

Our talented corrugated design team uses all grades of corrugated board to create practical, protective packaging. We utilize the thickness of the box flutes, the strength of the board, and the environment when conceptualizing the pack.

The results can be quite surprising. With a single piece of corrugated paperboard, we can effectively protect a product for a fraction of the price of higher end alternatives. They are environmentally friendly, made from 100% paper. And lastly, all of these designs ship flat, making effective use of your storage space.

Plastic Corrugated

Returnable & Reusable Packaging is a product line for which we get many requests. Reverse logistics, AV Rental, Refurbishing and Remanufacturing are all industries that benefit from returnable packaging.

We use plastic corrugated material to design rigid, durable shipping containers that will endure many repeat shipments. Plastic corrugated packaging can be customized with Velcro closures, sonic-welded sides for added strength, and foam cushion interiors. And because customers get repeated shipments using this packaging, it is environmentally-friendly, since the same package will be used again and again.
