Dri Clay® Kraft Desiccants Outperform "Forever Lasting" Desiccants

Better for the Planet, These Earth-Friendly All Natural, Plastic-Free & Biodegradable Desiccants Outperform Conventional Silica Gel & Calcium Chloride Without Any Micro-Plastic!

Silica gel desiccants are widely used in the packaging of consumer goods to prevent moisture damage as they travel along supply chains. For many years, consumers didn’t give a second thought to how they are made or what happens after they are disposed. Not anymore-days are changing. Bull Dozer Pushing garbage in Landfll

Fast forward to today, the desiccant packet you placed inside your package to protect the product has now become a spokesperson for your company and your brand.

Studies show that a growing segment of consumers are expecting sustainable products where ever possible, including desiccants - the very first thing a consumer often sees as they open their package. If your packet is not landfill-friendly, it creates a negative emotion all the way to the trash can which could affect your brand.

Negative Environmental Impact

While these little packets seem harmless in landfill, in reality, industrial desiccants have a tremendous negative environmental impact. 

If you employ Tyvek® silica gel, clay, or calcium chloride desiccants into your active packaging to protect moisture-sensitive products against deterioration, mold, mildew, rust, or corrosion, then you're unfortunately compounding a serious environmental problem.

Many conventional industrial desiccant absorbers are packaged in "forever lasting" materials, such as microporous laminate, polypropylene, or Tyvek® outer wrap, all of which will remain in landfill indefinitely.

Impossible to recycle, millions of these moisture absorber packets are disposed yearly, resulting in pollution, litter, and landfill where they slowly deteriorate into fine plastic particles referred to as micro-plastic - a serious environmental problem that affects the health of humans, wildlife and ecosystems - and consumers know this.

Environmentally Responsible

Dri Clay® Kraft sustainable moisture absorber packets are proven to reduce humidity faster and to lower levels than silica gel and calcium chloride. In addition, the production processes requires zero chemical inputs or additives, as well as low energy and low water consumption, resulting in a small carbon footprint. 

Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® Kraft desiccant packets are environmentally responsible, non-toxic, and they can be safely disposed in landfill where the clay is returned to the earth in its natural state. Featuring water-based inks and adhesives, Dri Clay® does not release harmful or toxic chemicals into the soil, nor does it contaminate water systems.

There is no risk of leakage - unlike other desiccants - the top-grade clay never changes size, shape, or texture, even when at full absorption capacity. The sachet is hard to tear, dust-free, has good breathability, and does not contain binders or solvents.

Made with less packaging materials than other common desiccants, Micro-Pak® Dri Clay® Kraft is also available in five sizes to fit your packaging, allowing you to eliminate moisture economically.
