Changes To Our Packaging

Environmentally friendly

We're going green

Less plastic for a better future.

Continuing our commitments as a responsible manufacturer, we at MPC have been working hard to significantly reduce the amount of plastic we use to package our cards in order to become more environmentally friendly whilst keeping and possibly exceeding the high standards that you have come to expect from our company.

When it took effect?

The change started on 1st February 2016.

What exactly changed?

We are using less plastic packaging for our cards. Instead of using shrinkwrapping on every single deck of cards that we produce regardless of whether a box is ordered or not, we have either removed the shrinkwrap completely or change to use a small card band (to keep the cards together).

Basically, there are 3 scenarios which we have conveniently outlined below:

  1. Shrinkwrapping is used - If no box is chosen (no change)
  2. Small card band is used - If any plastic/tin box is chosen for your cards (small change)
  3. No shrinkwrap or card band is used - No plastic packaging is used on cards if any tuck box is chosen. The tuck box itself will still be shrinkwrapped externally for protection (big change)

It may not seem like a big change to an outsider but for a company like ours that produces tens of thousands of decks per day, a small change like this goes a long way in reducing carbon footprint on plastic use.
