E-Cube® void-reduction system
The e-Cube® system automatically creates rightsized packaging, reducing the need for extra protective packaging like bubble wrap or polystrene.
If required, we use recycled paper void fill.
The corrugated cardboard boxes are 100% recyclable.
Our packaging promise:
sustainable by Apr 2020
sustainable by End of 2022
Note: Mighty Ape had previously set a goal of 100% sustainable packaging by October 2021.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on supply chains and international logistics we're gutted to say that we have not been able to achieve this goal in time.
Our team remains committed to improving the sustainability of our packaging and we will be making further updates in the future.
P1 Padded Mailers
Constructed from heavy-duty kraft paper with a uniform, 100% recycled, inner batting (ground-up paper and newsprint). These reusable mailing bags are 100% recyclable.
We reuse packaging wherever possible for the transport and storage of products. This allows us to reduce the waste we need to process and the new packaging we create.
Our Geami Eco Wrap and Fillpak Paper are from r3pack, a kiwi-owned business offering a range of sustainable products.
A proud member of the Sustainable Business Network NZ, they support their Million Metres Initiative to replant trees along our waterways.

Paper is naturally flexible and provides good shock absorption. It can be cut to precise lengths to use less material and can be recycled up to 7 times.
Recycled paper is preferable to normal paper as it uses 65% less water, causes 75% less air pollution and 35% less water pollution and saves energy and landfill space.
Our paper packaging is 100% recyclable, renewable and biodegradable.
Linerless label printers
We've introduced linerless printers for our courier labels. This means there is no backing paper to dispose of, and less waste disposal results in reduced carbon emission.
