The Oil of Cloves Company optimise their packaging size with Signet Custom Cartons and in turn reduce void fill usage by 80%, and postage costs by 28%.
The Oil of Cloves Company was the brainchild of founder Rachael Shaw after she discovered a gap in the market for natural and effective solutions to cleaning and pest control in 2008.
“We are a small business with an aim is to create green products that are close to nature, minimising harm to the environment through our 100% natural raw ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.” —Rachel Shaw, The Oil of Cloves Company Founder.
When the business first began, they struggled to find shipping cartons that would not only neatly fit their product, but that would also fit into the smallest pre-paid Australia Post satchel. This meant they needed to use Australia Post’s eParcel system; a more expensive method compared to the pre-paid satchels.
“Most of our products are now packed into Signet Custom sized Cartons. We have these cartons made to fit perfectly into different sized pre-paid Australia Post satchels to be more material and cost-efficient.”
Since using the Custom Cartons, The Oil of Cloves Company has been able to reduce the amount of void fill used by 80% due to a neater fit, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint and a more environmentally friendly supply chain.
When void fill is needed, compostable BioFill is used to eliminate any space in the carton, while Ranpak Geami is wrapped around glass items for added cushioning.
The Oil of Cloves Company weaves Signet packaging into their sustainable supply chain through a combination of biodegradable, recyclable, compostable, or recycled shipping materials.
“We have worked with Signet for the past ten years and will continue to work together to achieve the best possible cost-effective, eco-friendly packaging outcomes.”
