Design Challenge 1 - Pallet Stretch Wrap Alternative
Develop an alternative to avoid plastic stretch wrap around pallets to provide stability during transport and storage.
Today, when products are placed on a pallet they are wrapped with plastic stretch wrap for stability during transport and storage. It is an efficient and cost-effective solution, but it creates waste, which potentially can end up as litter, or is not recyclable (incinerated). The challenge is to find a paper-based solution to replace plastic stretch wrap that is recyclable or reusable in the same collection system as paper based packaging while still delivering the same properties for for stack of boxes.
