Paper does cost more than plastic bubble wrap, this is because of the manufacturing process and source of the paper itself, ensuring it is supplied from sustainably managed forests.

Although what is often forgotten about is the savings in both time, packaging waste and space. It is an investment in your operations, but it’s also an investment to future generations.
