A recent poll confirmed that 60% of internet users are willing to pay more money for products that are eco-friendly. This number is expected to increase as millennials and Gen Z will soon be a more prominent demographic in the eCommerce retail space. Younger generations actively approach their buying decisions with a sustainable outlook – and then align themselves with those brands accordingly. Aligning with an eco-friendly 3pl makes an impression for your brand while helping to provide environmental stability.

Many countries are reducing plastics to minimise carbon footprints – especially the UK.
As of April first (2022), the UK enacted a Plastic Packaging Tax (“PPT”). The reasoning for this is to incentivise businesses to reduce their use of plastic materials, specifically for plastic packaging.
Selazar supports this green initiative and is plastic free – reducing waste and supporting 21st-century sustainability initiatives.
According to National Geographic, of the estimated 400 million tons of plastic produced every year, 40% or 160 million tons, is used exclusively for primary and secondary packaging applications. Styrofoam fillers are plastic-based and wind up in landfills – taking hundreds of years to decompose. We use only recyclable scrunch paper as filler for all our packaging.
Sugar cane mailing bags are a sustainable alternative to standard polythene mailing bags. The primary raw material is a polymer that is derived from waste sugar cane instead of fossil fuel. These alternative bags improve your green credentials and reduce your carbon footprint.
Selazar uses 100% corrugated cardboard for shipping all orders. Corrugated packaging contains recycled materials and is compostable – free from dyes and bleaches found in some manufacturing processes. It is also very durable and easily reusable.
Recycled corrugated cardboard is the only type of cardboard we use.
Known as “water-activated tape,” plastic free gummed tape has many benefits. It is very strong with enhanced temperature tolerance while also being cheaper, and of course, is environmentally friendly. It is also a good tamper evident solution. Once the tape is removed from the box, it cannot be reapplied.
It is 100% recycled kraft paper saturated with a latex solution and natural latex-based adhesive. The tape is biodegradable, so perfect for landfills. For these reasons Selazar embraces this solution for all our warehouse operations.
