At Samuel Grant Packaging we are committed to reducing the impact that packaging has on the environment.

We help our clients to reduce their packaging consumption and waste, as well as advising how all parts of the packaging process can be recycled and reused. Samuel Grant Packaging's award-winning sister company, Marmax Recycled Products, is recycling in action - Marmax uses milk bottles to create high quality, durable, maintenance-free outdoor furniture and play equipment.

  • Both recycled and recyclable.
  • Made from vegetable starches, so easily compostable.

Polyester Strapping

  • Usually manufactured, at least in part, from recycled materials.
  • Lighter than steel and so transport costs and emissions are reduced.

Steel Strapping

Recycled products are an equal or better alternative to what is already available, with the added advantage of helping to improve the environment.

Marmax's products are excellent examples of recycling in action. Recycled plastic is better than timber or metal, especially when considering the cost of maintenance, both financially and environmentally.

  • Recycling plastic transforms rubbish into a high quality product
  • One bench uses more than the equivalent of 2000 plastic bottles
  • Recycling reduces the need for landfill sites
  • Our benches become tangible tools when discussing recycling
