Paper band replaces plastics in Laundry and Textile Industry

Keeping your laundry, textiles, blankets and linen neatly rolled or folded, looking smart and at the same time improving sustainability, then simply applying a thin band of paper or film is a most attractive option. For example, one customer has replaced plastic bags with a paper band and has reduced plastic waste by as much as 92.4% while enjoying significant savings in costs, packaging materials and energy. Several renowned industrial laundries and airlines are paving the way in changing to banding.

Banning plastics and changing to paper banding is proving popular amongst airlines

There is a worldwide shift in which airlines are banning plastics and choosing alternatives. For some, in-flight blankets and cushions are no longer packaged in plastic bags. Bags have been replaced by a neat FSC certified paper band, not only saving on costs, but also strengthening their environmentally friendly image. The paper band presents well and is a perfect ground for inviting texts, branding and logos. The paper band is very easy to remove for passengers.

Reasons why airlines are banding in-flight blankets:

  • Reduce plastic waste by 92.4%
  • Strengthen environmentally friendly image
  • A smart appearance
  • Additional (flexible) branding and communication
  • Remove risk of slipping on empty plastic bags
