1. Tips for Safely Packaging Electronic Products

    Shipping electronics can be a cause for worry; there’s always the risk of damage in transit. Electrical products are particularly difficult to ship – many shipping companies won’t insure them most of the time as they are fragile in nature.

    However, it’s not impossible to safely ship your electronic product. In this post, we share some safety tips for packaging electronic products.

    Use the Right Sized Box

    Give a thought to the type and size of box you will use to package your electronic product. Avoid using a box that is too small; your product will need some room after it has been wrapped and packaged. Be sure to pick a cardboard box that is sturdy, thick and can take pressure.

    This is crucial because if the package is stacked beneath other boxes, it could crumple under the weight, which can damage the product inside.

    The Packaging

    Start by taking any antistatic measures necessary. This will be needed for individual

  6. New Tax Targeted at Plastic Packaging from 2022

    Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer declared during the inaugural Budget presented by the majority government that plastic packaging would be taxed from 2022. The chancellor made it known that the levy on plastic packaging with recycled ingredients below 30% will be effective from April 2022. It is expected that the introduction of the new tax would go a long way in encouraging the uptake and use of biodegradable packaging by about 40%.

    Mr Sunak announced that the proposed tax would prove instrumental in dealing with the menace of polluting plastics. The Treasury, on the other hand, proclaimed the allocation of £700,000 for bolstering the IT competencies needed to supervise the prospective ‘Extended Producer Responsibility’ packaging scheme. The chancellor also disclosed a proposal for withdrawing the tax waiver on red diesel-a highly polluting fossil fuel.

    The move means that that businesses engaged in waste management and recycling will have to pay a s
