Forms Plus are delighted to have partnered with our Cornish neighbours Flexi-Hex to add their stunning, protective packaging for the premium drinks market to our range of environmentally friendly packaging.
Last summer, you may remember we conducted an extensive research project to assess the levels of demand for more eco-friendly packaging amongst our customers, other e-commerce resellers and amongst consumers. Our research told us overwhelmingly that both sellers and their customers see it as increasingly important that products are shipped in packaging that has minimal impact on the planet. 87% of European consumers are worried about plastic and claim to have changed their purchasing behaviour to favour brands who choose eco-friendly packaging. This figure is even higher amongst 18-34 year olds. (European Commission 2019 and Green Alliance 2020).
Located just a few miles from us, close to the sea in Porthleven, Flexi-Hex have created an innovative range of paper-based packaging that protects the planet, the oceans and of course your products. Their packaging is all 100% Plastic Free, Recyclable, Biodegradable and Compostable. Using a patented, expandable, honeycomb design, Flexi-Hex provides superior protection around fragile products, as demonstrated by their bottle drop video.
The first Flexi-Hex products to be available through Forms Plus are their Pinch Top Boxes and Bottle Sleeves for shipping one, two or three bottles. Not only do they protect the planet and ensure your drinks arrive safely, they also look great, improving the customer unboxing experience with their gift-like appearance. Benefits of Flexi-Hex bottle packaging include:
- Superior protection against drops, atmospheric conditions, shock and vibrations
- Impeccable environmental credentials – Plastic Free, Recyclable, Biodegradable and Compostable. Made from FSC Certified paper
- Post-ready, quick and easy to assemble – the bottle slides in, in less than 20 seconds
- Compact and cheap to store – each sleeve packs almost flat and can expand up to 35 times its original size
- Lightweight to pack and despatch
- Can be branded for you, either directly onto the box or via branded tape
- “Instagram-worthy” design to get your products noticed and improve the unpacking experience
The Flexi-Hex bottle packaging products are just a part of our growing range of environmentally friendly packaging. We also stock Enviroflute eco-padded envelopes, eco postal boxes, book wraps, board-backed envelopes and packing tape. All our products are now scored out of 5 on our website to show their environmental credentials. This indicates whether they are Recycled, Recyclable, Biodegradable, Plastic Free or made from Sustainable Materials. Not surprisingly, the Flexi-Hex products all score 5/5.
