Introducing our Straw Shred made from 100% Recycled USA acid-free paper made with 100% hydroelectric energy. Heavier color throughout the paper provides better protection for your products, and pound for pound stuffs 50% more volume. A 6 lb box of Straw Shred fills the same space as comparable 10 lb shred — saving you money on the shipping supplies and many times the shipping cost of your product.
Consider the following questions.
- Are my products fragile?
- Are my products very heavy?
- Do my products have corners that could be subject to damage (i.e. books, postcards)?
- Does my package have significant excess space in it that could cause my products to move around and get bent, damaged or scuffed while the package is in transit?
- Is it important to me and my brand that my customers receive a package that is unique and enjoyable to open?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, Straw Shred Fill should likely be part of your packaging strategy. Corrugated shipping boxes are the most likely shipping strategy to require shred fill of some sort because (regardless of what your product is) they are the most likely to contain excess air. But there are certainly cases where shred fill isn’t needed.
