Reusable packaging

JSP - ELIMINATION OF SINGLE USE PLASTICS

Where possible JSP ensure plastic packaging is reusable by being resealable and therefore used as a storage unit as stipulated by the PPE regulation, to take care of the item of PPE in order to protect it, keep it dry and free from dust. For example the Force®8 Half-Mask and Sonis® range of Ear Defenders. This also prolongs lifespan of the product when PPE is stored correctly.
 
  • Removal of plastic bags and use of tissue paper to protect logos on Helmet ranges
  • Redesign of existing packaging to become a storage units so bag is reusable
  • JSP offer a PPE Bag for life to ensure product is protected in the bag as a storage unit and to increase the life of product
