AIRSHIELD Environmental Benefits
Revolutionising the packaging industry and significantly reducing the industry’s environmental impact is AIR|SHIELD®. A compact, lower cost and 100% recyclable solution challenging dominating materials such as polystyrene, bubble wrap and foam. Not only are the commercial credentials unrivalled but the environmental benefits are substantial.

Traditional packaging solutions like polystyrene pose a great risk to our environment. Polystyrene’s volumetric size is large which means numerous trucks are needed for delivery.


AIR|SHIELD® challenges polystyrene because of its compact form. Transporting AIR|SHIELD® is significantly easier because the product is delivered as a flat film and is later inflated when encasing the product. This means that you can cut down on transport costs and reduce your carbon footprint with a reduced number of transit journeys.

Samuel Grant Sales Director, Martin Harris said “One client recently converted eight artic truck deliveries per month of polystyrene packaging into 6 pallets per month for one of their kitchen packaging facilities– the financial and environmental savings across the year are enormous.”.

Polystyrene raises many environmental concerns because of the length of time, if at all, it takes to biodegrade. It poses huge risks to land and marine life in its foam form where it slowly breaks into smaller pieces which can be mistaken for food.

With AIR|SHIELD® the air is the protection. Using a thin film which is inflated means there is an enormous reduction in the amount of waste produced, leading to reduced usage and waste of polystyrene, decreasing the environmental threat it causes.

AIR|SHIELD®, launched by Samuel Grant Packaging and their business partner Gaia Packaging Solutions, is solely distributed by Samuel Grant Packaging, so get in touch with our team of experts to see how AIR|SHIELD® can benefit your business.
