A Win for Sustainability

One of the key highlights of PaperWave air cushions is their exceptional sustainability. These air cushions are crafted from 100% FSC® (C162510) recycled paper, making them an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic-based air cushions. After use, they can be easily disposed of in organic waste or curbside recycling bins, reducing waste and promoting a circular economy.

PaperWave cushions have received recyclability certification from the Paper Technology Foundation in Munich (PTS). They have also successfully passed testing at Western Michigan University (WMU), demonstrating their compatibility with standard recycling processes. This means that they can be placed directly into recycling bins along with the shipping box, making recycling hassle-free for businesses and consumers alike.

PaperWave air cushions strike the perfect balance between protecting shipped products and prioritizing sustainability. Composed of 5% material and 95% air when inflated, they are lightweight and cost-effective. These cushions are ideal for businesses committed to ensuring product safety while minimizing their environmental impact.

A Diverse Range of Solutions

AirWave-Floeter offers a comprehensive range of transport protection solutions to cater to various needs. In addition to PaperWave Bio, they also provide options like AirWave ClimaFilm-50 and 100. These solutions complement the PaperWave Bio line and further solidify the company’s dedication to eco-friendly packaging.

AirWave-Floeter takes pride in manufacturing their air cushion films in Germany, ensuring high-quality standards and environmental responsibility. The company’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the fact that all their air cushion films are 100% recyclable, further reducing the carbon footprint associated with packaging materials.
