Sealed Air announced it has launched a BUBBLE WRAP® brand paper bubble mailer, a fiber-based padded mailer that can be recycled in curbside bins. On the outside, the BUBBLE WRAP® brand paper bubble mailer looks like a traditional mailer but it’s what on the inside that makes it different. The inner padding is made of a paper material that mimics the original BUBBLE WRAP® brand cushioning. Benefits of the BUBBLE WRAP® brand paper bubble mailer: *Smaller and lighter than traditional boxes, which reduce shipping costs and dimensional weight *Durability: Completed testing done in International Safe Transit Association certified labs that assess packaging durability through the rigors of shipping *Curbside recyclability: Certified by the Western Michigan University OCC equivalency testing protocol. The mailers will first be available to customers in SEE’s North America market, before expanding globally by early 2023.
Pratt Industries executive chairman, Anthony Pratt, has pledged to invest $5 billion in U.S. recycling and clean energy infrastructure to create 5000 American manufacturing jobs over the next 10 years.
Anthony Pratt made the pledge – his largest ever commitment – to Caroline Kennedy, the U.S. Ambassador to Australia, at a recent black tie event in Sydney.
“Pratt Industries is proud to already be the largest Australian employer of Americans – providing 11,000 well-paying, green-collar jobs in more than 70 factories across the nation,” Pratt said.
Part of the new commitment is already taking shape in Henderson, KY, where the company is building its 6th, 100% recycled paper mill. An investment of $500 million, the mill is one of the biggest economic development achievements in Western Kentucky in the past 25 years.
Pratt is also building a 700,000 square-foot corrugator plant adjacent to the mill. The combined project expects to bring more than 300 full time jobs to the area and more than 700 jobs for the construction phase.
