    If the shoe fits: sustainable packaging for ON

    Short delivery distances are at least as important for sustainability as environmentally friendly materials. That’s why Model and Zurich-based sports equipment manufacturer ON are a real dream team.

    Get started, keep going, push through – ON gives its all

    ON AG from Zurich knows all about innovation. Elite athletes all over the world feel like they’re running on clouds thanks to ON. Thanks to a patented shock-absorbent sole, the Swiss sports brand wins gold every time. When the shoe and sportswear developers aren’t targeting new personal bests, the name of the game at ON is sustainability.

    Recyclable materials, resource-efficient manufacturing, circular economy rather than linear waste – ON’s commitment is clear to see. The only catch? The brand's shipping and retail packaging was ordered and produced in Vietnam, nearly 9,500 kilometres away – a delivery distance that raised some eyebrows.

    The clear next step was to turn to Model. After all, the distance between our experts in environmentally friendly packaging and ON is barely 70 kilometres. Still, being a stone’s throw away does not a green partnership make. Our challenge: sustainable packaging for ON that would optimise the shipping process and improve the user experience. 

    Model is ON!

    We produce and supply to ON outer packaging for retail and shipping in four sizes and shoe boxes in 14 sizes (for adults and children).

    Local, ecological, economical – and packing a punch

    It’s not only when you’re dealing with apples, meat or bread that local and sustainable go hand in hand. Environmentally friendly packaging for clothing and shoes also becomes infinitely more green with every reduction in delivery distance. With MODEL packaging, however, that’s only the beginning.

    Eco materials

    Our testliner cover layer is made from 100% recycled fibres without any dyes. That is something ON’s customers can see and feel immediately. The previous packaging was coated with a black colour, whereas now the boxes appear in natural brown.

    Streamlined shipping

    ON boxes save on material and volume thanks to tuck-in flaps. This reduces storage costs and optimises shipping logistics. The crash lock base is assembled in seconds, which speeds up picking and packing.

    Better customer experience

    Printing clear information on returns and exchanges on the inside of the box turns the packaging into part of the unboxing experience – and saves on additional inserts.

    It’s not only when you’re dealing with apples, meat or bread that local and sustainable go hand in hand. Environmentally friendly packaging for clothing and shoes also becomes infinitely more green with every reduction in delivery distance. With MODEL packaging, however, that’s only the beginning.

    Closed loop paper

    With our own circular economy approach, we’re on exactly the same page as ON. We use up to 100% recycled paper and always recycle used packaging.

     

     

     

    Low transport costs

    Every unnecessary addition to the delivery distance makes sustainable packaging needlessly more expensive – not to mention a contradiction. That’s why we manufacture directly on site and deliver to ON by the shortest route. With no middlemen or pit stops.

    Shorter delivery times

    Being local and close to the customer means quicker reaction times, too. Instead of having to predict imprecise packaging needs far in advance, ON can now base its next order of boxes on the exact number required and contact us even at short notice.
