Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
For the longest time, wooden pallets were the only options manufacturers had when it related to large-scale shipping. However, wooden pallets do pose obstacles — not only are they costly, but they’re inconvenient. One of the only reasons they prevailed for as long as they did was because they had a monopoly when it came to moving goods through rail or truck. They were commonly used in storing products in warehouses or on the manufacturing floor too. However, single-use, recyclable pallets eventually came to light as an alternative to these! Not only are they recyclable, but they’re lightweight too…
Single-use, recyclable pallets leave less of an environmental footprint than their wooden counterparts. They don’t crack or splinter, and since they’re made to be used only once, they don’t incur the wear and tear that eventually makes their wooden companions unable to be used. And since they’re recyclable, they don’t need to be burned in an incinerator when they’re done being useful! They cut back the use of new products, saving energy as well.
These kind of pallets are easy to store, too! They take up less space, and you can customize them after you get them by using more triangular supports with different sized bases. In addition, they’re much lighter to ship, saving you money as they make their way to you — they also take up much less space than their wooden counterparts along the way. They’re also easier to use than traditional wooden pallets, too. Where can you go wrong by switching to these? Living in a world where every penny saved is essential, you want to use the most affordable and effective alternative whenever you can. You also want to do your part in helping to ensure that this planet lives and thrives for as long as it can, because if our planet isn’t thriving, well… we will stop thriving too.
