Nuss Relocations goes plastic free

May 10 | 2024

Nuss Relocations in Sydney is now providing international packing and wrapping services that are totally plastic free.

The company says that this is a major advance in its efforts to provide the most sustainable moving service in Australia.

The company’s international packing products are now all paper-based, including: furniture wrap, tape, fragile void chips, special crates and all other products used for international moves. It has also replaced traditional white packing paper with a brown paper equivalent as brown does not go through the toxic bleaching process of white paper making it a more eco-friendly option.

Nuss is taking a leadership position in implementing this seismic shift in Australia and, in doing so, is actively reducing the carbon footprint of an international move,” said Ray Beard, State Manager for Victoria.  “Our paper wrapping products are all 100% recyclable and we have abandoned the bubble wrap products that are still widely used by our industry. Although this is generally classed as recyclable, in reality most of it ends up in landfill as the recycling entails a separation process that is both time consuming and costly. Plastic and plastic-based materials are clearly causing massive long-term damage to our environment and so we are all responsible to push for change.”
