New York, February 5, 2024 - Today channel-free logistics leader Fillogic announces it will offer 100% recyclable, reusable mono-material polypropylene packaging for customer shipments. The material is provided by Renegade Plastics® and made by reusable packaging provider Returnity.
The packaging is the latest version of Returnity’s Last Box, a reusable shipping box that replaces standard corrugated cardboard, comfortably holds 50+ lbs and typically lasts 40 - 50 shipping cycles.
According to Returnity’s analysis, US retailers use over one billion cardboard boxes a year to move products between factories, distribution centers and stores. The Last Box revolutionizes business-to-business shipping and internal operations, allowing retailers and brands to save money, improve operational efficiency and lower the environmental impact of their packaging.
By using the Last Box, Fillogic customers can better ensure all boxes are properly retired and recycled at end-of-life, because polypropylene is commonly and efficiently processed in commercial recycling facilities around the world. No demanufacturing or specialized processing is necessary.
“By switching to these recyclable boxes with Renegade Plastics and Returnity, we encourage reuse and recycling, helping our customers to be even more proactive in their sustainability efforts,” says Fillogic Founder & CEO, Bill Thayer.
“We are thrilled to have Fillogic be first to market with our innovative new reusable and recyclable boxes. Their expertise building efficient logistics systems for retailers and brands makes them the perfect partner,” says Returnity CEO, Mike Newman.
