Make a resposible packaging choice

Think about the lifetime environmental impact of the materials you choose. Mailing packages made from Tyvek® potentially produce less waste, use less energy, and emit less CO2 than cardboard or LDPE used in similar conditions.

To save fuel, switch to Tyvek®

An analysis based on 260 million parcels packed in cardboard, shows that mailing just 30% of them in Tyvek® packaging would save CO2 emissions equivalent to 3.2 million km by truck or 1.5 million litres of petrol.*
To cut waste, switch to Tyvek®

Although cardboard is sometimes easier recycled than Tyvek®, it is nowhere near as longlasting or as reusable. To equal the environmental performance of Tyvek®, you would have to recycle a single cardboard box four times. If the recipient of your mailing doesn‘t recycle the packaging, cardboard creates up to 20 times more waste than an equivalent Tyvek® mailing package and LDPE pockets create 70% more waste.*


To save energy, switch to Tyvek®

Along its complete life cycle Tyvek® packaging uses up to 33% less energy than comparable LDPE packaging, and only 25% of a comparable cardboard box.*

To cut your postage costs, choose Tyvek® every time

Tyvek® is lighter and stronger than equivalent cardboard or LDPE packaging materials. You can choose to ignore the environmental advantages, but you can‘t overlook the economic benefits. Mailing your goods and documents in Tyvek® saves you money every single day.
