Molded Pulp vs. Bubble Wrap

molded pulp vs bubble wrap

As the world moves toward greener environmental practices, many companies are jumping ship on traditional packaging products and moving toward more sustainable choices.

Bubble wrap has been a popular form of packaging for years, as it is a cheap and efficient option. Unfortunately, this plastic also has severe impacts on the environment.

Should You Use Bubble Wrap?

Bubble wrap is a low-cost packaging method that cushions and protects the product it surrounds. In most cases, you can reach out to your local municipality for instructions on recycling, although it often requires a more complex process.

Bubble wrap is created from low-density polyethylene, a commonly used plastic in plastic shopping bags. This material is created using toxins harmful to humans and is resistant to biodegradation.

Only 1% of all plastic produced is recycled each year, and dumping grounds have become a popular place of disposal, causing toxins to contaminate soil and water and harming our environment. These plastics can take 300 years to break down entirely.
