Packaging solutions provider Sealed Air has been selected by Sun Basket to supply sustainable, insulated box liners.
The Sealed Air’s TempGuard curbside recyclable box liner solution meets Sun Basket’s requirement to insulate its perishable products including fresh, organic produce and responsibly sourced meats and seafood with easy recipes.
Additionally, the 100% recyclable TempGuard solution helps Sun Basket to insulate its shipping boxes. The solution’s padded material cushions the items to protect it during handling and transit.
Made from recycled paper tested to ISTA 20 certification standards, the TempGuard thermal insulation is designed to ensure contents maintain proper temperatures for one- and two-day ground shipping.
Sealed Air Strategy and Business Development vice-president Susan Bell said that its fully curbside recyclable solution meets Sun Basket's temperature assurance requirements.
"Because sustainability is a key business driver for our clients and online shoppers are requesting environmentally friendly packaging from retailers, Sealed Air is expending R&D efforts not only on improving the recyclability of its existing packaging materials but also creating new bio-based packaging products derived from natural sources."
Sun Basket Strategic Initiatives Head Michael Golub said: "We learned about Sealed Air's 100% recyclable paper insulation before it came to market, and because of that we are now the first in the meal kit business to use it.
“We are excited about this insulation because, among other things, it made the recycling process even easier for our customers while at the same time reducing the size of our box, for both a sustainability and customer experience win."
