UK: New Garment Containers Help Cut Waste Levels
New hanging garment containers made out of vinyl and opaque-canvas are set to cut waste packaging levels in the clothing industry and sound the deathknell for traditional polythene covers.
Developers at a British firm have unveiled a reusable garment carrier that they claim protects clothes from dust, dirt, fumes and even theft while the goods are in transit.
Called Garment Guard, the containers can carry up to 20 garments at a time and have been designed to withstand a minimum three years of continuous use. They also feature a tamper-proof zip and a radio frequency ID tag which allows tracking of the consignment anywhere in the world.
Developer Transcover Ltd also claims the containers will save time during loading and unloading and will mean the end of wasteful one-trip transit packaging which adds to companies' waste costs.
