Paper Pulp is made from recycled paper and/or cardboard and is an eco-friendly material option for various packaging needs. Paper Pulp has been widely used in the food and protective packaging industries, but is becoming more popular in other areas for not only protective packaging, but also decorative packaging. Some products are doing away with plastic packaging material and opting for a more environmentally friendly Paper Pulp material instead. Paper Pulp materials can eliminate millions of pounds of non-compostable trash every year, and also reduce overall product cost. Some common materials for Paper Pulp are recycled paper, cardboard, and loose cellulose materials. Other types of Paper Pulp products that are commonly manufactured are made from sugar cane, bagasse, wheat, and bamboo fibers.
Recycling material using this process allows for materials to be re-used and upcycled into new products, transforming waste materials into new products that are more environmentally friendly.
Upcycling is a rather new term and is deemed a creative process for reusing old products or materials that can be transformed into something new.
Packaging of products has typically consisted of a combination of various types of plastics and cardboard that are used to protect or enclose products for transportation, marketing, and sales. With the worldwide effort of reducing the use of plastic materials and products, alternative materials are being researched and implemented every day in place of these plastic materials.
Plastic and metal materials can also be upcycled into other products and recycled and melted down to become repurposed.
