We’re all about sustainability even behind the scenes. An innovative new product is helping New World Fendalton divert 3.8 tons of waste from landfill annually by reducing the need for soft plastic pallet wrapping in their storeroom. Pallet wrap is used to keep products safe in transit but can be problematic to dispose of, but through working with local company Nichol Development and Distribution, the store has switched from the traditional soft plastic pallet wrapping to Green Spider Reusable Pallet Wraps, a new reusable mesh version that is sturdy enough to be used over and over again. Made from a polyester mesh that is 50% recycled material, heavy-duty Velcro straps, and reinforced metal D-Rings, the combination of the straps and mesh equates to ten times the loading strength of plastic pallet wrap. New World Fendalton Owner Operator James Turner says it’s great to have found a sustainable solution that not only reduces waste to landfill but is cost-effective and easy for staff to use. “We’re always looking for innovative ways to incorporate sustainable changes across all aspects of our business and the Green Spider Wraps are a brilliant way to help us reduce waste. What we love about the new wraps are they’re more sustainable, simple, work well, and we haven’t looked back since.” Director of Nichol Development and Distribution Ltd Joel Nichol said he discussed different ideas with Fendalton New World owners James and Richard Turner about how they can reduce waste within their operation, and the large scale of pallet wrap they were using, and discarding was highlighted as a key area they could make a difference in. “Not only was it the volume of plastic they were using and discarding to be recycled, but the cost of that plastic for the business. Green Spider Wraps offered the store a convenient eco-friendly solution that would also save them thousands of dollars every year.” “Due to the sturdiness of the pallet wraps, they’re able to withstand up to 1400 installs or five years of regular heavy-duty use, which means 18.9 tonnes of single-use pallet wrap will be eliminated from either landfill or requiring to be recycled.” Foodstuffs New Zealand Waste Minimisation Manager Emma Harding says it’s another demonstration of the co-operative’s commitment to being here for New Zealand through being sustainability leaders. “New World is making huge strides in sustainability, by 2025 all our Private Label and retail packaging will be recyclable, reusable or compostable. We’re also working to phase out ‘problematic’ plastic packaging. It’s actions like this that prove we’re really considering our whole operation and how we can minimise impact in different areas, not just what the customer sees on their end.” Green Spider Reusable Pallet Wraps are now in use at 20 sites across the country and two more stores trialling it with predicted annual savings of more than 14,000 rolls of traditional pallet wrap.
