We are all too aware of the damage carbon emissions and plastic waste causes our eco system. For years we have seen images of pollution and the public pressure on business to cut back on waste has never been higher.

Producing an ‘eco-friendly’ product involves the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. The ‘eco’ portion of this scenario is to design a product that has little or no damaging effect on the environment. Here’s a small fact with a big punch, 90% of business leaders indicate that consumers will hold them responsible for environmental impact, people aren’t just shopping with their wallets they shop with their hearts. There is nowhere to hide from consumers who base choices on how environmentally friendly your company is.

What is your company doing for the environment?

Have you been pushing the plastic pallet wrap alternatives to the side; will you get round to investigating it one day? Well, that day has been and gone and you can no longer plead ignorance. The consumers and wildlife won’t wait, global warming isn’t waiting.

That’s the view PCNets adopted when our reusable pallet nets were created. By taking ownership of sustainability and instilling that sense of ownership into employees, companies create meaningful solutions. With all options there is a question of cost, anyone in business is aware of the bottom line that has been squeezed by the pandemic. PCNets has taken a long-term view – invest in our products with a potential $200,000 saving over 5 years, that is an immense contribution to the budget whilst reaching sustainability goals.

Companies are being forced to look closely at efficiency, while minimising product loss and damage. That is exactly what PCNets pallet nets achieve. If your company doesn’t have a strategy to save the world one plastic wrapped pallet at a time, in a sustainable way, then it’s time to wake up and smell the savings.
