Over the next several months, Armor Protective Packaging® is changing the color and appearance of its shipping boxes from white to natural brown. Rest assured that while your ARMOR order may deliver to you in packaging that looks different on the outside, we guarantee that the ARMOR rust prevention products on the inside are as clean, safe, easy and effective as they have always been!
ARMOR’s move to a shipping box that is made of brown, Kraft paper is also a move towards eco-friendly and sustainable packaging. Using natural Kraft paper allows ARMOR to increase the recycled content in the corrugated used to make its shipping boxes – a win/win for everyone!
Kraft corrugated shipping boxes are brown in color because the wood pulp they are made from is unbleached – it is free of chlorine and additional processing. To attain white corrugated for shipping boxes requires the added step of bleaching. Upon evaluation, the ARMOR team came to the simple conclusion that less chemical processing equals more environmentally-friendly.
ARMOR’s new shipping boxes can be reused or recycled and without any coating they biodegrade easily. The switch in shipping boxes will be a rolling change – during the transition you may receive some ARMOR product in white boxes and others in brown boxes until the full changeover is complete.
