The best sustainable packaging for business


Sustainable Packaging

Is sustainability a top priority in your business or household? Whether you use packaging to send customers handcrafted items or you’re packing up your home for a big move, it’s important to use sustainable packaging materials.

Research shows that 80% of UK shoppers describe themselves as environmentally friendly, and this includes packaging options. While there are now hundreds of eco-friendly packaging supplies available, it can be daunting to decide on which one is the best for your products. Here are a few great alternatives to traditional plastic that will help protect the planet and your goods. 

Sustainable poly mailer

Traditionally, poly mailers are plastic shipping envelopes made from harmful polyethene materials. Yet with sustainability becoming a top priority around the world, manufacturers are now producing envelopes with sustainability in mind. For example, compostable fabric and recycled materials are being used to produce high-quality packaging. 

Recyclable bubble mailers

Just like poly mailers, bubble mailers are also traditionally harmful to the environment. As the world shifts to a more sustainable way of life, bubble mailers have also taken on a new look with many now made out of recycled materials. These recyclable bubble mailers are also reusable, encouraging people to reduce their carbon footprint and wastage. 

Industrial recycled paper

Did you know that paper can be recycled up to six times? Over the years, the paper industry has become one of the biggest recycling industries in the world. When buying paper for the printer or packaging, it’s important to make an effort to buy recycled paper. 

Bio-packaging materials

There has been a rise in the number of options for eco-friendly packaging materials made from biological materials. For example, Styrofoam can be replaced with mushroom-based packaging. Corn foam can replace plastic foam, and seaweed packaging is a great alternative for food packaging!

At Storage World, we offer businesses and households the opportunity to only pay for the amount of space that they need – with no wastage! We offer a variety of different unit sizes, ranging from 5 sq ft to 200 sq ft, with the opportunity to switch units as your needs change.
Ready to book your unit? Our friendly staff will be more than happy to advise you on which size unit is appropriate to safely store your belongings. Head over to our on-site offices located in Manchester Central, Middleton and Hale & Wilmslow to talk to a member of staff or to purchase sturdy and sustainable packaging materials at our convenient in-store box shop.

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
