Void Fill for Shipping Protected Items

At DS Smith ePack, we understand the importance of delivering your items safely and sustainably. Our eco-friendly packaging solutions are designed to protect your products during transit while minimizing environmental impact. With our range of void fill options, you can ensure that every item arrives in perfect condition, all while supporting green packaging practices.

Void fill is essential for preventing movement, reducing impact, and protecting your items during shipping. It fills the empty spaces in your packaging, guaranteeing that your products remain stationary and secure throughout their journey. At DS Smith ePack, we're committed to not only safeguarding your items but also to protecting the planet. That's why we offer a variety of eco-friendly void fill options to suit every need.

What Are The Benefits of Void Fill?

Using void fill in your packaging has several key benefits:

Protection: It cushions your products, absorbing shocks and impacts during transit.

Stability: It keeps items from shifting, reducing the risk of damage.

Versatility: There’s a void fill solution for almost any type of product.

Eco-Friendliness: Many void fill materials are recyclable, biodegradable, or reusable, contributing to a healthier planet.

Customer Satisfaction: Delivering your products in pristine condition enhances the unboxing experience and boosts customer loyalty.

Types of Void Fill for Your Packages

Shredded Paper

Shredded paper is not only an effective cushion but also an eco-friendly option. It's made from recycled paper and is fully biodegradable, offering a sustainable way to protect your products. Shredded paper fills up the empty spaces in a box snugly, providing excellent protection and preventing items from moving during transit.

Protective Paper Bubble Wrap

Our protective paper bubble wrap combines the cushioning benefits of traditional bubble wrap with the sustainability of paper. It's perfect for wrapping fragile items, providing a layer of protection that's both effective and environmentally responsible. This innovative solution is recyclable and made from renewable resources, making it an excellent choice for eco-conscious businesses.

Tissue Paper

Tissue paper is a lightweight, perfect option for protecting a wide range of products. It's ideal for wrapping individual items to prevent scratches and scuffs, or for filling small voids in packaging. Our tissue paper is made from recycled materials and is fully recyclable, offering a soft, yet eco-friendly barrier between your products and the hazards of shipping.

Gel Packs

For temperature-sensitive shipments, gel packs are an indispensable solution. They help maintain a consistent temperature, protecting everything from gourmet foods to pharmaceuticals. Our gel packs are reusable and designed for minimal environmental impact, making them a smart choice for businesses committed to sustainability.

At DS Smith ePack, we're dedicated to providing you with sustainable, effective packaging solutions that meet the needs of your business and the environment.
