How Our Eco Clam Pack Is Helping The Environment

After the recent Blue Planet series on TV, awareness about how plastic is negatively affecting our environment and its inhabitants is becoming a more dynamic concern. Each year, an estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans, ranging from plastic bottles to plastic straws. This is having a worrying effect on those that call the ocean their home – turtles are being suffocated and whales and seals are becoming entangled in the floating plastics. Some sea creatures are even eating the plastic mistaking it for food. Something needs to change!

As a packaging company, Quantrelle wants to make a difference by managing it’s plastic output, which is where our Eco Clam Pack comes in. Our Eco Clam Pack is a sustainable method of packaging which reduces the amount of plastic used in packaging by up to 65%*! This pack contains recycled paper materials as well as recycled plastic, and produces a more premium result. The shelf appeal for our Eco Clam Pack is enhanced by allowing enough space for branding and messaging as well as eye catching aesthetics.

We have also designed our Eco Clam Pack to be opened without the need for a sharp tool once the consumer has purchased the item. One negative we hear about regular clam packaging is the issue of opening up the plastic and getting into the product. This issue is alleviated with our Eco pack, it doesn’t mean your product is not protected within this packaging, it simply allows separation and the individual items to be recycled individually.

So it’s a no brainer really, our sustainable Eco Clam Pack is the way forward if we want to make a difference to our environment – it may be a small step, but it can go a long way!
