Postal and Packaging, Sustainability

Over the past 5 years we have seen a surge of interest in eco-friendly alternatives to packaging products. With the new Plastic Packaging Tax coming into effect from April 2021, offering sustainable options is more important than ever.

At SCS Packaging we have prioritise five key criteria:

  • Sustainable
  • Recyclable
  • Reusable
  • Biodegradable
  • Waste reductive

Our range of Green Tenzalopes™ guarantee an environmentally conscious alternative without compromising on quality.
