• DS Smith launches Social Distancing Solutions

        • As more countries look to ease lockdown measures and get back to a new normal, the focus has quickly turned to how to do so safely and best prevent the spread of the virus. To aid this, sustainable packaging provider, DS Smith has developed sustainable cardboard separators that enable social distancing across a variety of sectors and environments, including industrial environments, offices, waiting rooms, retail outlets, schools, restaurants and public spaces.  

          The company’s creative design team of 700 experts worked together to address this emerging widespread need and have produced innovative solutions that meet flexibility and safety demands. The barriers are self-supporting, quick and simple to assemble and can be replaced on a frequent basis, reducing possible cross-contamination risks. They feature flexible designs that can be adapted for different customer needs and can also feature logos and key messages.  

          James Lomax, UK Sales Director at DS Smith said, “as society moves to enhanced social mobility following the easing of lockdown measures, we’ve been working closely with customers and local partners to produce social distancing solutions that provide safety and peace of mind in a wide range of environments.  

          “Whether these are separators to create a safe working space or screens to allow consumers to pack their food without being too close to fellow shoppers in the stores – we are pleased to be using our expertise to deliver solutions that help society move out of lockdown. These products are constructed from high-performance materials which are 100 per cent recyclable and environmentally sustainable. 

           “I’m extremely proud of the whole team at DS Smith; they continue to engage with our partners, customers and each other at this difficult time, applying learnings and developing innovations at a fast pace to best facilitate life after Covid-19.”
