Single-use plastics have been an environmental menace, and numerous industries are looking for ways to curb their use. The packaging industry stands as one of the largest contributors to environmental degradation today.
The convenient experience of plastic packaging is hard to replicate, but doing it is now a necessity. EPA states that landfills in the United States alone process a significant percentage of the world’s packaging waste, around 30.5 million tons. Today, almost 65% of all trash in the world is packaging material. Experts believe that this number can grow considerably in the absence of any concrete actions.
Consumer demand for Eco-friendly primary and secondary packaging materials
Thankfully, the demand for eco-friendly packaging is surging nowadays. Some consumer segments are even ready to pay a little extra for environment-friendly packaging materials. Even governments recognize the importance of eco-friendly practices and are incentivizing sustainable packaging through tax-rebates and other benefits. Moreover, using plastic bags for retail is banned in many major cities across the world. In such markets, brands compete to increase their consumer base through innovative and convenient packaging solutions like the carry handle.
A study estimates that the market for sustainable packaging will go through a substantial growth of 43% by 2025. Shifting to eco-friendly packaging and friendly secondary packaging is not only the ethical thing to do, but also makes economic sense.

Works just like a regular carry handle
Despite being made from paper only, the GreenCarry has the same capabilities as the regular carry handle tape. The premium adhesive material by Davik allows the paper-based carry handle to sustain heavy loads, around 12kg, without any issues. If needed – even heavier packages are possible to handle.
Can work with existing automatic applicators in the market
Are you an existing carry handle user? You might be concerned about the compatibility of the paper-based variant with your existing applicators. A lot of thought and capital goes behind selecting an automatic applicator for your plant and you don’t want to waste that. Don’t worry! Davik designed the GreenCarry Tape to seamlessly work with commonly available applicators in the market with minimal adjustments.
Similar to the regular carry handle tape, you can easily customize the paper-based variant according to your marketing requirements. You can easily change the dimensions of the handle and use the available space to run a promotion or send out an advertising message.
