The pack, which won the 2019 TIACA Air Cargo Sustainability Award, can be dropped from a plane without any damage to the contents. This was proven in prototype tests during which a pack of 30 eggs, a notoriously fragile product, remained intact following a drop from 100 metres. Wings for Aid was attracted by Smurfit Kappa’s sustainability credentials and the company’s long-term expertise in paper-based packaging. The packs can be easily re-used for other purposes such as shelter but if left behind in the outdoors, they will break down easily due to their 100% biodegradability.
