Environmental Stewardship - Recycling Wooden Packaging

Posted by Mark Hoffman

Sep 29, 2014 4:43:44 PM

 The need for environmental stewardship has never been more urgent. At, Larson Packaging Company we are constantly working to combine customer savings and service with smart, green packaging solutions.  We accomplish this by implementing "best practices" for green management and making critical choices throughout the entire packaging cycle. We start by purchasing materials that will stand up well during shipping and can also provide additional value through recycling and reuse.

Retrieval and recovery systems exemplify the meaning of win/win solutions for business. They provide the opportunity to lower costs while employing green management strategies. Recent market research shows that one out of every five wood packaging users currently use, or plans to use, a packaging retrieval and recovery system. This increased use is probably indicative of two trends: a change in attitude toward the environment  and the convenience of solving certain waste disposal problems.  According to this study, the number of users of closed-loop packaging systems is up 300% in just two years and is projected to keep growing.

While many companies may choose to recycle crates and packaging in house, others may find it more convenient and cost effective to engage third parties like Larson Packaging Company. Please contact us to discuss your company's packaging and recycling needs.

The High Price of Low Cost Packaging

Benjamin Franklin, renowned for his sage advice on a wide range of subjects, was once quoted as saying that "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." This adage remains as valid today as when the words were first spoken. If you are in the business of shipping a product or equipment from a manufacturing or distribution location to the point of use you have a lot at risk. That's why investing in and partnering with a reliable industrial packaging company that provides top quality products and service is so important to your business.

Wooden Shipping Crates and Heavy Duty Skids

Wooden shipping crates and heavy duty skids are designed for the size, weight, shape, fragility, sensitivity and destination of the items to be shipped. They may include floater bases and foam lining or supports for shock and vibration protection. Specialty hardware, blocking and ramps may be included to facilitate reuse or loading. Overdesign means paying for more wood, hardware and labor than you need, and underdesign can lead to damaged equipment and other consequential expenses.
