Product Description

Details

An eco-friendly alternative to plastic parcel tape! Our eco paper parcel tape is made from renewable kraft paper not from plastic. It is water and solvent resistant, acid free - suitable for picture framing use and can also be used for cold storage (it can be applied at chilled temperatures (roughly 5 degrees) and stored down to -25). Our eco parcel tape can be left on the cardboard carton when it is recycled. At present though, realistcally, it is more likely that paper recyclers will still be using systems to recover this mechanically for energy recovery through incineration as they do with plastic tapes rather than repulping it. Hopefully this situation will improve as paper tapes become the norm and the recycling industry advances in line. Composting - although paper & cardboard is often composted our recommended method of disposal of the tape would be to leave it on the box and put it in with the cardboard recycling, not to compost it. This way the paper could be re-used up to about 7 times.

This roll is 75mm wide and 50 meters long. 

We wanted to reduce the amount of single use plastic in our packaging but we were unable to find a paper tape on the market that was sensibly priced and sourced from within the UK / EU. We send thousands of parcels a month and get through rolls and rolls of tape. That was a lot of plastic but also it was a lot of buying power! We contacted some tape manufacturers and asked for a tape to be made to our specification. We wanted it to be self adhesive and work in a standard tape gun, we'd tried gummed paper tape before but didn't like the time it took to dry. For this to work and be a viable alternative to plastic tape it had to be as easy and convenient to use! We ran some trials and results were positive, this led us to think that we might not be the only company who want to use paper tape for their postal packaging and so we decided to offer it on our website. We sell 3 different sizes, 50mm thick parcel tape, 24mm thick and 19mm thick. We are especially proud of the 19mm thickness because we can offer this from £1.00 per 50 meter roll!
