Sustainable Packaging Made from Wheat Straw for Dell

From the Direct2Dell blog

“We [Dell] were the first in the industry to use bamboo packaging, mushroom-based packaging, packaging made from greenhouse gas emissions and [partnering with YFYJupiter] packaging made from wheat straw. ...Dell upcycles this straw into the boxes we manufacture in China to ship products.

In FY15, we transitioned much of our notebook product packaging from bamboo to sustainably sourced paper- and wheat straw-cushions.

We... replaced petroleum-based foams with paper pulp and wheat straw cushioning, which are actually less expensive in addition to being more sustainable. We also re-engineered some of our packaging to reduce the need for separate cushioning—our tablet packaging is now composed completely of cardboard.

Many companies in other industries are following our lead and using wheat straw in their packaging. This is great to see. The industry also took notice when YFYJupiter’s Npulp¨ (wheat straw product) won the Silver Medal for Sustainable Systems at the Edison Awards.”
