Since January 2016, Woolpack Australia (and its wholly owned subsidiary Woolpack New Zealand), trading as Planet Protector manufactures and distributes an environmentally responsible insulated packaging technology. Woolpack is designed to reduce Australia’s B2B and B2C use of polystyrene.
Governments and industries have begun to acknowledge how problematic polystyrene (poly) is and have begun to pledge to legislate and phase it out of use in supply chains and consumer packaging. Before Woolpack, there has been no alternative to poly that has delivered equivalent thermal performance. Woolpack delivers temperature stability that is superior to poly and is cost competitive, as well as being a product that is recyclable, sustainable, biodegradable and compostable.
Woolpack’s packaging not only outperforms in temperature stability but is also environmentally responsible, cost-competitive and fully customisable. The innovation brought by Planet Protector to the cold chain transport of temperature sensitive goods, is supported by the reduced environmental impact. In addition, transitioning to a Planet Protector solution means a demonstrable public commitment to sustainability, greater customisation in printing options and an elevated image of packaging as premium and cutting edge.
Transitioning to a Planet Protector solution significantly reduces business’ incoming transportation, storage costs and carbon footprint, as all components of Planet Protector products are easily diverted from landfill through recycling, composting or biodegradation.
