Lochcarron, a world leading manufacturer of tartan has recently taken a significant stride toward sustainability in its packaging practices. The company has made the move to Paptic® material, a wood-fibre-based and recyclable at-scale innovation. This eco-conscious shift supports the call from environmentally aware consumers and resonates seamlessly with Lochcarron’s steadfast commitment to responsible and sustainable material usage.
Lochcarrons’ gorgeous tartan accessories and clothing have been reaching global customers from their Scottish base, in packages made from Paptic®.
Claire Birch from the Paptic® team said ”I’m delighted that this superb heritage brand has selected Paptic® as the material for their e-commerce mailers” Leah from Lochcarron told Claire “We wanted to change our packaging to something that better suited our sustainable strategy, but that didn’t compromise the packaging performance. We ship globally, so we needed the bags to withstand varying temperatures and damp conditions. After many months now of using the bags, we are very happy with their performance through the logistic network and in all weathers. We are really pleased to have found this material and will continue to use Paptic® for our mailers for the foreseeable future”.
Paptic Ltd is a high-growth company established in 2015 with headquarters in Espoo, Finland. The company has developed Paptic®, a fibre-based and recyclable material to replace plastics and other conventional materials in packaging. Paptic® materials have been available on an industrial scale since 2018. Today Paptic is a company of 40 professionals, and Paptic® materials are delivered to over 50 countries. www.paptic.com
