The small and lightweight IndES Elastic Staples™ eliminate excess packaging and reduce the amount of transported material. They increase productivity, save energy and reduce CO2 emission. Better packaging is better for the environment as well as the customer.
Old methods such as blister packs, clam shells and other plastic-covered retail products represent 60% of plastic packaging waste and have a huge environmental impact. New trends indicated by surveys on consumers’ environmental concerns show that 74% of customers prefer to buy products with less plastic and 85% agreed that packaging has some level of importance when purchasing the product.
With the new TAGSON sustainability packaging machine you will reduce plastic packaging waste by 99% and in doing so, you will reduce also CO2 emissions and use the best sustainability packaging on the market. The unique packaging system attaches the item on a cardboard with stretchable elastic staples, and firmly secures it by using less energy and producing less packaging waste while increasing the interaction with customers at the point of sale.
