ESPOO, Finland, Jan. 8, 2021 (Press Release) -Paptic's new packaging material solution for e-commerce was awarded in the WorldStar competition. The first user for the awarded solution was Stockmann, one of Finland's largest department store chains.
The e-commerce mailer made of Paptic Tringa was developed to replace plastic in this end-use. It is a soft and durable mailer, enhancing the brand value and expanding the current sustainable packaging window. The material is cellulose-based, recyclable, moisture resistant, printable, and well convertable with the existing package production lines. Compared to corrugated cardboard, Paptic's e-commerce package takes up less space and is faster to fill and close. Paptic Tringa material is pleasant to touch and does not make a crackling sound.
The winning solution was developed to offer a sustainable alternative to consumers
The successful entry was developed in co-operation with Stockmann as they wanted to provide more sustainable alternatives to their customers. “Our goal is to inspire and support our customers in making responsible choices every day, and it has been a real pleasure to hear their enthusiastic feedback about the Paptic packaging. We want to congratulate the Paptic team for this great award and thank them for this important cooperation for a more sustainable future”, says Jari Latvanen, CEO at Stockmann.
"Our mission is to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic films in packaging, and we are constantly developing new solutions with sustainably focused companies. We are delighted of the fruitful co-operation with Stockmann in this project and that our innovative e-commerce packaging solution was rewarded with the WorldStar award", says Tuomas Mustonen, CEO of Paptic Ltd.
