ASB MAGAZINE: Adaptable plastic free packaging firm Flexi Hex will launch a crowdfunding campaign to community fund the next stage of their journey.  Flexi-Hex is now available in 19 countries with over 154,000 sleeves sold, removing the equivalent of 389Km of bubble wrap, enough to extend from London to Paris. According to Flexi Hex, current sales are showing 174% year on year growth. The global protective packaging is estimated to be worth $756 Billion annually and the potential for Flexi-Hex is far reaching.

 

Founders Sam and Will Boex recognised the impact that single use plastic was having on their local and the world’s marine environment. Their passion for surfing and their personal experience of transporting boards around the globe inspired them to create a sustainable packaging sleeve for the board sports industry.  Consumers and industry are seeking sustainable alternatives to single use plastic packaging.

Flexi-Hex have achieved investments from Sky Ocean Ventures and Innovate UK and in 2019 won industry awards, including The Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Re-Innovation Award and The Eco Pack Challenge.  The company recently featured in The National Geographic as one of ‘The 5 UK innovations that could change our relationship with waste’
