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.

Biodegradable Packaging List Paper Envelopes

Our range, from sizes A6 to A4, include plain and printed DOCUMENTS ENCLOSED wallets.

All made from oxo-biodegradable polythene they hold documents visibly and securely. The self-adhesive clear paper wallets are solvent free using a permanent hotmelt adhesive (visit our blog on hotmelt glues to find out more) and are manufactured from biodegradable glassine paper.

Penalty Charge & Parking Charge Notice Wallets

Tenzalopes biodegradable PCN wallets offer an alternative to their non-recyclable counterparts. Complete with a low tack adhesive they are a popular way for any governing body to reduce the amount of plastic packaging waste they use.

Paper Mailing Bags

Our eco-friendly alternative to plastic mailing bags, Tenzalopes™ Green paper mailing bags are made of 100% virgin kraft paper. The paper bags are fully recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable, including the peel and seal. Additionally, the material is only sourced from sustainable forests and any ink used is water based and non-toxic.

Alongside the environmental benefits of using paper mailing bags, Tenzalopes™ do not compromise on the strength and resilience of their products.
