Ecogrip delivers the sustainable multi-packaging of bottles

Blue Box Partners, the pan-European Alliance of suppliers for corrugated board packaging solutions, has launched Ecogrip, a corrugated alternative to shrink wrap for the multi-packing of a wide range of bottles that builds on the growing consumer demand for sustainable packaging.

In 2019, the EU issued a directive on single-use plastic (SUP), aimed to reduce the impact of certain plastic products on the environment. This has caused large brands and manufacturers to re-evaluate their packaging strategies and seek out alternatives.

Ecogrip is designed to replace single-use shrink-wrap plastic for bottles between 330ml and 1.5 litres, providing a recyclable and biodegradable corrugate solution for multi-packs. Adaptable to the many different bottle styles on the market regardless of diameter, it provides brands, retailers and consumers with a 100% recyclable and sustainable multi-packing solution for four, six or eight bottles.

“Every business is now focused on sustainability,” said Armin Höttges, Managing Director at Blue Box Partners. “While we continue to see improvements in recycling rates for many packaging products, secondary packaging such as shrink-wrap falls into the category of single-use plastic which can create issues if not disposed of responsibly.
