Union, NJ, December 17, 2020 - As O.Berk aims to help grow entrepreneurial businesses through our eCommerce division, Bottlestore.com, we’re continually striving to provide more practical, sustainable packaging solutions in line with the core values of our customers. Sustainability at O.Berk is about the entire product lifecycle, including packing and shipping methods.
Increasingly, small businesses are choosing glass packaging over plastic. Not only for glass' luxury look and feel but also it's infinite recyclability and capacity to be sterilized and refilled again and again. Providing this seemingly perfect solution to our customers can be challenging from a shipping perspective, where protecting fragile glass in transit is a priority.
After an extensive search to find the most sustainable and practical solution to protect sustainable glass packaging during parcel shipping without adding to the waste stream with non-recyclable excess plastic and foam packing materials, we’ve decided to partner with Ranpak.
Ranpak has been a provider of sustainable paper shipping materials for over 40 years, which is why we’ve trusted them to help us develop a solution that would fit our needs.
Annual net growth of U.S. forests is 36% higher than the volume of yearly tree removals
Ranpak paper is 100% recyclable
The paper supply chain mostly relies on renewable energy sources that are considered carbon neutral. Sustainably managed forests, such as those used by Ranpak are also considered carbon neutral as tree growth cancels out the carbon footprint generated by logging efforts.
Ranpak paper is 100% biodegradable.
Commitment To Recycling
85% of Ranpak paper is either 100% recycled or contains recycled content.
With this new commitment to sustainable shipping, we hope to make O.Berk, and our customers, just a little more green.
