DS Smith is collaborating with Krones AG to develop an alternative solution to shrink wrap on PET bottle multipack called the EcoCarrier.
A corrugated handle, paper band and the Krones mechanisation system which allows for large PET bottles to be bundled without problem plastic shrink wrap.
EcoCarrier offers substantial benefits in terms of Carbon footprint up to -71% , recyclability, planet safe, renewable sources, and recycled content. This is a commercially attractive solution, easy to carry and to recycle.
The concept has been designed with DS Smith’s Circular Design Metrics in mind and deliver a much-improved solution compared to shrink wrap solutions.
