What is Flexi-Hex?
Flexi-Hex bottle packaging is a 100% recyclable and biodegradable alternative to plastic and other protective packaging solutions such as polystyrene bottle packs and is much more cost-effective than other paper alternatives such as ‘pulp’ packaging. Suitable for protecting a wide range of delicate items, the unique honeycomb design makes the Flexi-Hex bottle sleeve extremely strong and adaptable and produced from 85% recycled paper, it improves your green credentials, and is completely plastic-free.
