Why choose iTack®

Using recycled tape helps reduce the demand for new raw materials and minimises waste that would otherwise end up in landfills or contribute to pollution.

Double up with the new iTack® combination dispenser

To speed up your tape application in the warehouse, the new iTack® Combination Dispenser is now available. If you use two different core sizes of tape for various functions, you now have the versatility of one dispenser that will work with both.

Your teams may have a preference to roll size or length, or you may wish to take advantage of the cost savings that comes with the smaller core – our combination dispenser is the answer.

 

How does the iTack® Combination Dispenser work?

Watch our quick video below that shows you how to swap between core sizes in seconds.

Choose from 30% or 100% recycled plastic content – what’s best for you?

Both options help to reduce your reliance on new resources, supports waste reduction as well as helping you to avoid plastic packaging tax associated costs. The production of iTack® creates energy savings compared to producing new materials from raw resources, therefore reducing greenhouse emissions.

Both are comparable when it comes to quality and performance as iTack® is designed to meet or exceed the standards of traditional tape.

What else do I need to know about iTack®?

Since April 2022, any plastic packaging that does not contain at least 30% recycled content is charged a ‘green tax’ of £210.83 per tonne. Whether it’s paid directly as an importer or manufacturer, the end user will carry an increased purchase price. Both the 30% and 100% variants of iTack help you to avoid this additional costs.

Using iTack® in your warehouse makes a big contribution to lowering your carbon footprint and your environmental impact. The rapid growth if ecommerce has resulted in an increase in the number of parcels shipped and consequently the sharp rise in the use of parcel tape for sealing all those packages. With over 14 million parcels shipped in the UK every day, there is a huge requirement for parcel tape and an urgent need to make this product eco-friendlier. That’s where iTack® steps in. A completely sustainable product made from existing resources that reduces reliance on manufacturing new materials, conserving more natural resources.

The production of recycled tape also uses less energy compared to non-recycled tape, which helps to further reduce greenhouse emissions.

A simple and cost-effective way to include your brand is on the packaging tape you use rather than the boxes. Not only does this reduce your costs, it provides flexibility in changing any supporting messages you may wish to include. If you think about your end user, they won’t be aware that the parcel they have received has been sealed using recycled tape so this is a great opportunity to include this message too, highlighting your environmental commitment.
